    I'm sure I'm not alone and there's several out there like me in the "rest of the world" who are waiting for pre-ordered SP3's.

    What are you doing in the mean time?

    My problem is I'm buying all the gadgets to go with it!! So far I've bought a case and a USB/ethernet hub. As the money is still burning a hole in my pocket still have an urge to buy some expensive gadget (like a camera, or a new portable HDD) and have to keep telling myself that I have already bought an expensive gadget... LOL

    Still only a couple of weeks to go now..!!

    Dont forget some BT headphones, BT mouse, 128GB microsd ;)

    I picked up some Plantronics Backbeat Go 2's with charging case @ BestBuy for $72 (after price match to tiger direct). Work great with the SP3.

    The waiting time is always a nightmare. Buying accessories is good but sometime you buy stuff that either does not work or are not compatible so be sure to check Forums like this one to be sure that you are ordering the right thing. Buying the microSD is just mandatory.

    I know I'm trying to stop myself but it's difficult as I'm excited!! ;-)

    Got Sandisk 128GB micro SD, I did read of some issues with them, but at the moment in that size there's no alternative. I'll find a use for it I'm sure if not in the SP3.

    I got THIS ethernet/USB hub.

    and THIS case.

    The Ethernet is like a Backup plan. Using one is like adding a leash to a will wolf. ;)

    Yes, the USB 3.0 hub will be more useful probably.
