Help Fuze 8GB - Wher's the Black?

I'm trying to find a store, company, anything that sells the 8GB Fuze in Black, but it's nowhere to be found. I called Sandisk customer service and they have some of the worst support I've ever used.

Futureshop sells the 8GB but only in Silver, yet all 2 and 4gb versions have all colours. Does anyone know where I can get it? My only other option is getting the 4GB in Black and then buying a MicroSDHC card.

Thanks in advance.

They don't ship to Canada and before you say it, Amazon.ca doesn't even carry it.

Since we both live in Canada I suggest Ebay.ca. You can order from U.S.

I've had bad experience with Ebay, I'd rather be able to buy it in a Retail store or at least a reputable online store that's based in Canada. If it's this difficult, I'm leaning toward just getting the 4GB and buying an 8GB MicroSD...

Got that right, favourite colour is black and I'm if I'm paying $120+ CAD for it, I'm going to get the colour I want or not at all =P. It's a bit stupid the 2GB and 4GB versions have all colours available everywhere and the 8GB only Silver.

Heh, yet another place I checked out long ago. They don't ship to Canada because there's a Newegg.ca and the Canada version doesn't carry it. The whole point is to find a Retailer/Online Store that carriers it within Canada =P.

Zayne:

Did you try Wal-Mart? I got my 8GB silver Fuze there on Boxing Day for $70. The local store had a couple of black ones last week, but I didn't check the size.

You may have to check the lower levels, in the local store they are not in the nice display.

Well, if you have read through the entire thread, there's many instances where Canada is mentioned, including Canada only stores =/.

I've actually ordered from them before. Easy ordering and timely shipping. Would recommend it.

You have? Was there any import fees, taxes, etc? I've never heard of this company before, I usually try to find well known or ones registered with the BBB for guarantees and reliability. Luck has it that B&H is on the BBB, but with a lot of activity in the range of complaints and such.

I did business with them about a year ago. I ordered an 8 megapixel camera from them and from what I can remember I don't think I had to pay duties, taxes. Am pretty sure it was sent by UPS. If your concerned about taxes or customs duties have some money set aside just in case or they all take credit cards.
