Default NewEgg coming to UK

Found this on http://www.theinquirer.net.

New Egg, Gateway to come to UK

Market getting crowded again

By INQUIRER staff: Friday 13 May 2005, 08:34

SOURCES SAID retailer New Egg, big in the US, is to set up shop in the United Kingdom.

It already has a presence in France, but the date for the move to sell kit to UK consumers isn't yet known.

And it appears that Gateway (Emachines) is also to set up shop again in the UK, and possibly Europe.

Again, a date for the launch isn't known.
Article: http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=23216

Sounds like good news is coming to those on the other side of the pond... eventually.

From my email it didnt seem like it.

They basicly said "we dont care about your question, but we dont ship to Canada"

I think it is a prank

Guess we have to live with tigerdirect's BS and ncix's always changing prices.

Yeah man. Too bad. At least ncix seems to have "somewhat" of a flavor of newegg. Better than nothing.. :-\ Don't even mention tigerdirect. The only good thing about them is that I couldn't find anyone else that carry the Razer diamondback.
