So I bought the tablet yesterday…some small, unheard of brand (QuoTab). The shop didn’t have any new ones in stock, I bought the display item, and the owner gave me a small discount.
Looks like I was ripped off, anyway. The earphones are missing, and the battery holds a whopping 8 minutes when fully charged. I looked the product up on the manufacturer’s website, and find this:
The Battery of our Tablets QUO have not feature removable.
Back to the shop today, with my “scary” face on, to try and menace them about the battery, though I doubt I’ll get anywhere, if the batteries in this tablet aren’t replaceable.
I have been had.
If you know what you’re doing, you get what you pay for. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you get what you deserve.
I am using Kris’ laptop, at the moment, though that is on its last legs, as well, and will probably up and die in six months’ time. I don’t want to commit anymore money, while in Venezuela, to this problem: you just can’t trust the stores, it’s impossible to get service or spare parts.
I need to think about what I’m going to do.
