    1. What additions to you recommend getting aside from the base model, dock, and keyboard case?

    2. Would you buy their extra pens or buy a pen from wacom directly?

    3. If you get a 3g/4g tablet and do not pay for a 3g/4g plan, can you sign up for one at any time? With verizon?

    Newegg is selling some open box q584's for $679, for anyone looking to save some $$. Be sure to read that open-box return policy fine print!

    It looks like he hired a shaky cam to make the video.

    For those who, like me, own the Thinkpad Tablet 2 accessories it's good to know that at least some of them can have their life extended in use for the Q584. Specifically:

    Amazon.com: Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 Sleeve Palm Accessories: Computers & Accessories
    and
    Amazon.com: Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 Bluetooth Keyboard with Stand - US English: Computers & Accessories

    The Q584 is a little bigger but it still fits okay with the sleeve closed. Note that just like with the TPT2 the bluetooth keyboard does not lock to the tablet in any way (unless you want to add Velcro). The tablet just sits in the groove. Okay for a flat, stable, tabletop but not all that good in one's lap.

    The keyboard and trackpoint work plug-n-play once paired to the Q584. The trackpoint, BTW, is the optical type which some people rage and hate on Lenovo about. Just so you know. ;)

    A snugger fit than with the TPT2, but you don't have to force it in.

    I think this sleeve is a good one as far as protection goes. For some folks the fact that a workable keyboard fits in there too will be a bonus. I don't know that I'll ever actually use the keyboard, but it's so light it's no trouble taking it along just in case.

    ...

    Coming up on thirty days with my Q584 and I'm still loving it — it's perfect for me — and I haven't had any other issue besides the scratchy interference (static) when using headphones (knock on wood). Battery has settled in between nine and ten hours on a full charge; Tijo's color calibration profile has pretty much eliminated the somewhat nagging, slight yellowish tint; performance is great on everything I use except that pig, that resource hog called Corel Paint Shop Pro X6 (but I can use it). The latter is also the only application I use often that won't scale properly.

    Which brings me to the Wacom pen. I can't speak to the artistic merits but I can say it's quite noticeably more accurate in the corners than either the SP2 or TPT2. I can hit the close box on Corel PSP when full screened even though it's a 2650x1600-scaled window. Ditto for all the menus. Though, to be honest, I usually use Corel with my mouse and keyboard. Regardless, I'm quite pleased with the pen even though I only use it as a pointing device.

    :thumbsup:

    It's finally turned up at Fujitsu's German store. Only the 128GB version is available, but apparently it has 4G. It's cheaper than most of the ones available in the UK. The only accessories that appear to be available there are some low end IEMs.

    I don't know if they ship outside of Germany. It's certainly not much of a hassle for companies to ship inside in EU though. Amazon de will quite happily ship to the UK for instance.

    Myself; I'm very tempted to jump now. I might be going to live in Japan soon though, so getting their version later might be a better idea. I'm not sure I can wait four months though. :eek:7

    @dellaster Was it to your cat's liking (taste)?

    She's restricted to sniff only ever since she left tooth marks on the TPT2... on that same top-left corner, coincidentally. ;)

    Hm, if you wait to buy in Japan you'll get it with the Japanese localized Windows, which may be important for you there. Some Japanese programs won't run on anything else (without some hack).

    But I know that I would have a hard time waiting. Good luck with that!
