Today's news and offers first come, first served!
Pandora, one iffy nub
Refurbished original Pandora, new case, new LCD cable, unfortunately although the nubs are new ones one of them is still showing issues. At the very best you might be able to use the broken one as a mouse on the desktop. Comes with free extra battery + carry case while stocks last.
Pandora, broken sound channel
These units have a broken sound channel on the PCB side. The sound works but will either be in mono or only come from L or R. Silver case, new LCD cable.
Original Pandora (refurbished) & carry case.
Fully working original Pandora. This unit had a faulty LCD cable, a faulty power switch and a faulty keymat, the cable has been replaced, the power switch replaced, the keymat replaced and at the same time the case has been replaced with the newer silver one. Now 100% working. Comes with an extra battery & carry case.
Open Pandora 4200mAh Battery
Pandora 4200mAh Battery. Brand new. Gives around 10 hours battery life on normal use. 20+ hours in low power. RRP 9.99, so this is a drastic reduction.
Pandora, no Wifi
This is the *LAST* of the original Pandoras with the wifi issue. Upgraded to silver case, nubs working fine, new LCD cable, but the wifi is showing errors, so you will have to use an (included) micro Wifi USB stick. It comes with a spare battery.
Pandora, both nubs broken
Managed to resurrect 3 more dead boards, work fine now, have new case, new LCD cable, but the nubs are poor. At the very best you might be able to use one as a mouse on the desktop.
I should have a few more working Pandoras over the weekend (various levels of functionality), if you might want one either email me or add yourself to the alert system. Since the dead PCBs are not selling even for 2pounds(!) I'm spending time on a few a week seeing if I can bring them back to life.
Once I've emailed interested people about the working units, if they don't sell, I'll then add them here.
(more) Broken Pandora PCBs
Another odd one, these are broken Pandora PCBs, generally they won't work or will work for a while then reboot. It's not economical for us to fix them, but in the right hands, yes, they can be made to work again.
If we know what's wrong with the PCB then the fault will be included on a note with the board.
Bit of an odd one this, had some requests for dead Pandoras, and yes, I have quite a few. These are units which either keep resetting or just don't power on at all. It's not economical to try to work out what's wrong with them, so here they are if you fancy one.
These might ship not 100% assembled, but all the parts will be there, these are ideal for spare parts.
Auto email feature
I've added a feature to auto email people when we get new stock. This feature is only 100% working from today, so even if you have used it in the last few days while I've been testing it, do enter your email again to be sure it's in the system.
You will get an email a day before the item appears on the site with a chance to buy it in advance, so it's worth setting it up.
2G / 3G Android Tablet Phone
Really nice value Android Tablet Phone (Phablet? Are people using that term?). 1.5Ghz, 2G and 3G support, 1GB RAM, 8GB Internal storage, full specs and video review: More information

Pandora carry case
Original Pandora carry case. These are new old stock.
Phones & Panodori
It's very obvious you want phones and Panodras. We have more W8+ phones coming and I've also got some other phones to review of various power. The current Chinese phone situation fascinates me and I want us to become a good source of these with accompanying reviews.
I'll also review some tablets as well as USB sized PCs. It's taking a lot of work to get this all back in gear and we really appreciate the emails and sales.
5 Inch 1920x1080p (full HD) Quad Core Android 4.2 Phone - 16GB Internal Memory, easily the best current Chinese phone, and one of the best current phones in general. Now with a video review:
Original Pandora (refurbished).
Original CC Pandora. These units had faulty LCD cables, the cables have been replaced and at the same time the case has been replaced with the newer silver one. Now 100% working. These come with an extra battery, and for this one, a carry case too!
Right, yes, we have still not gone live and that's because we can't actually keep up with demand as it is. We have ordered much more stock and I've got several reviews in the bank as well as the second half of the Pandora re-casing video to post.
Once the next stock arrives we will push to the newer design and a proper launch. We're seeing what sells and what you want and adjusting to suit, it might take us a few weeks to get the balance right. Obviously we're not complaining about the sales :) ... it's nice to be back!
Pandora silver case
Newer Pandora silver case set. This is a tricky & time consuming item to retrofit, be warned! Detailed video instructions are here:
THL W8+ Review
I've made an overview of the THL W8+ Chinese mobile phone, I bought up several of these phones and this one is currently my favorite.
Silver case, new LCD cable & new Battery
Fitting service to upgrade your black or damaged Pandora with a new silver case, new LCD cable & new battery, making it look like new! You cover shipping both ways, we do the rest.
If you also need your LCD replaced at the same time, we can do that too.
Holiday, if only.
Just a reminder that today, the 27th of May, is a holiday in the UK, so no orders can ship as everyone is off work, unfortunately it's predicted to be raining all day.
So then, I'll spend the day seeing if I can resurrect anymore Pandoras from the graveyard of CC units. Update: Got 2 working, now to leave them running and see if anything odd happens.
Minor updates & thanks
Thanks for the feedback so far and sales (enjoy!). There are a few HTML fixes and description fixes. We will have more of the THL FHD W8+ phones soon as well as an extensive review
I'm coding in numerous new features to the site too which will appear in the coming days, then it's public launch time.
I'll save the final competition clue until then.
Probably the best current ARM PC-on-a-Stick. Dual core A9 with 1GB of RAM. Micro SD + wifi. Plays anything you throw at it, superb media + game system. Has USB + BT for controls. Coincidently our Pandora2 & iCP2 test SoC.

Rebirth Pandora, customer return, it arrived with a faulty LCD cable. Cable is replaced, case is updated silver one and unit is 100%. Comes with extra battery.
More Pandoras coming, and competition time part 2.
Thank you to several people for testing the website and buying up the Pandoras amongst other items. We shall try to add more units in the coming days. I'll be working on the site all week. Now, competition clue 2 is as follows:
A man who is attracted to a co worker is drugged and suffers a series of worrying visions. Eventually he has to have brain surgery, but this just makes the situation worse.
It's competition time!
We will be posting 3 literal descriptions of well known classic games. Your task is to identify them to win 25 bars of chocolate, fancy giving it a go? The first one is thus:

Think you've got it? Stay tuned on here or twitter for the next one.
