This the only Win 8 tablet that I had considered purchasing this year. All my notebooks are in great condition, don't need any more "portable" pcs, (according to my wife). I am holding out for it, and putting some cash away. even stopped my going to to lunch to save some cash.
    It'll start at $649 in the US.

    That is interesting, considering that the Microsoft Store has had it up for sale @ the price of $699.00, that is a good $50 mark up.

    I am hoping to order it via GOVT. sales for a nice discount.

    Actually, it's a $50 discount. The model listed on the Microsoft Store is 367926U. Lenovo has this listed at a MSRP of $749. Also, this SKU includes the pen. CDW has it listed for $783: Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 3679 - tablet - Windows 8 32-bit - 64 GB - 10.1" - 367926U - Tablets - CDW.com

    Another interesting tidbit now that technical specs are starting to show up on all of the channel distributors. It looks like most if not all of the models include GPS as standard. Not sure if it's an absolute but I'm definitely seeing it listed on CDW, Insight, etc.

    Is it real GPS or 'phone' GPS using the 3G/4G network to determine location?

    *New* ThinkPad i7 Helix pressed into daily service as of 4-Aug-2014 - phenomenal cosmic power?
    HP Elitepad 1000 - my former main device - do I keep this or my V8P as my sidekick now
    Dell Venue 8 Pro - my ultra mobile device (I cannot believe where I can stick this thing)

    It's hard to say. I assume you mean WiFi-based location since most models don't have a 3G/4G radio. If you look up the SKU that MS is selling in their store on CDW (367926U) you can see that it's listed as a separate receiver.

    Maybe these tablets will all come from the factory with the new Lenovo "no contract mobile broadband" access that was announced for Thinkpads last Summer.

    Lenovo Mobile access, with pay-as-you-go wireless WAN mobile broadband service (in select countries)
    From the TPT2 page on Lenovo. So hopefully!

    Has anyone seen any info that suggests the TPT@ can be charged via standard USB-microUSB connection ala smartphones?

    The included charger states microUSB connector @ 5W, which suggests hooking up to PC or car charger will work fine. However I've seen a couple of close up pics of the port and it doesn't look like a standard microUSB port (the middle bit looks thicker)....
