@Germans: Please note that your shipment will be delivered by DHL Express which is *not*
your regular DHL delivery man. Most important: DHL Express accepts cash only (at least from private customers).
I expect to pay about €21 import tax ('Einfuhrumsatzsteuer') plus €12.50 DHL surcharge for customs handling ('Kapitalbereitstellungsprovision').
I'm fine with that, as I don't need to go to the Customs Office, queue up there, present invoices, etc. From my perspective 12.50 Euro surcharge fee are very cheap.   
Thanks for the heads-up!
Also received email from DHL! My Pinetab is expected to be delivered Thursday, September 10. I'm in Illinois in USA.

For the germans who ordered a Pinetab w/ keyboard via DHL. I had to pay an addiotional €35,28 in taxes and so on. I could do this beforehand via Paypal or credit card. However you can pay in cash too, if I understoof correctly.

Yeah I had a similar experience it cost me £35 in UK import tax , I received an email at 6am GMT to say my tab had shipped and currently its in the UK at Heathrow airport . Hopefully I receive it today.

I stand corrected.  Smile I had to pay the same amount. I did so via Paypal. I'm very happy about that. DHL Express has always been quite a PITA when you had to pay import taxes and customs, because they insisted on cash and the couriers never had any change money. 

I get even happier: The PineTab will arrive today. That's 24 hours from Hong Kong to Germany. Really awesome.
I also received a DHL Shipping notice Yesterday saying my PBP will be here in 2 days. (3 day shipping from HK to Austria)

After duty tax though I paid a total of 300€ for a 200€ Pinebook.
Its finally here !!!!! The pinetab Arrived at 12:00 GMT unfortunately I wasn't in so I've just unpacked it for a quick check

30 hours from Hong Kong to UK great effort !
