Looking at the T&R link now, they have some pictures of a new 16gb with "2nd Generation IPS". This seems to have the speaker by the camera on rear but only one speaker slot there, I am sure earlier 16gb models had two speaker slots side by side on the rear?
If that is right then it seems there may be a newer second generation version of the 16gb, and based on the experience of Azouz, people should be very wary about flashing these?
Looks like iTab has the new version though, and his model no shots still show MID970 and 20120313 firmware so not sure my theory works entirely, but there does seems to be a newer version and if mine is that one when Fedex finally get off their arse and deliver it I will be wary about updating firmware if it works OK as is.
DELIVERY - My tip to everyone is pay the extra few dollars and go with DHL. iTab ordered his after me and it arrived earlier via DHL, they seem to speed it on the next leg as soon as it arrives anywhere. My Fedex shipment has sat unmoved for at least 24 hours on every leg of the journey. On order site both say delivery 2-7 days, but DHL seem to aim for as fast as possible and Fedex aim for 7 days. Not impressed and other peoples experience seems to be Fedex will come up with a higher Customs/Admin fee which will more than wipe out the initial shipping cost saving. I won't be using Fedex again ever - very unimpressed
