All the 8GB versions in the US are out of stock or sitting with a late March delivery date.
B&H have it with shipping on Jan 31 , but I would not trust their estimate 100%.
they say 3 years warranty, but don't say if it's international or US-only
I don't think it does
notice how other models says "with travel keyboard" and the 899$ doesn't say that
Gorilla glass 4 actually.
some good news regarding usb-c charging on the elite x2 , a charger that did not charge the spectre x2 is said that it can charge the elite , this can mean that the port is open or is that it's compatible with a wider set of chargers approved by HP (spectre x2 is only compatible with HP charger )
I really hope the screen quality is better plus more battery efficient than Spectre x2 and General deliver better battery life.

there was a question about if the Ram is upgradeable , from the maintenance manual it's not upgradeable
full maintenance manual here
HP still has not sent me an email saying that my machine has shipped. The person who took the order said it would ship for sure Thursday or Friday and I would get it Friday or Monday. We'll see.
Some things about the different models are unclear:
1) The sales guy said RAM was definitely upgradeable from 4GB to 8GB. Even though the manual says 8GB is soldered down, some of the tech sheets say that they have 4GB soldered and then another 4GB. That is unclear.
2) I have now talked to different people at HP about whether the model I ordered will accept an LTE microSIM. No one seems to know. The model number is T8Z04UT in both Canada and the U.S. The HP U.S. specs sheets say this model includes the Intel wireless module and LTE. B&H says this model does not include LTE. The Canadian website does not say it includes LTE. This is a deal-breaker for me. I'm mainly interested in the X2 1012 because it is the only fanless 2 in 1 that can include LTE (and is not Atom based). So if I do get the machine early next week and it will not take any carrier's microSIM then I will return it.
I think the model with LTE in the US is T8Z06UT (with the LTE module HP lt4120 LTE/EVDO/HSPA+ NGFF Gobi 4G with GPS , check below to see if it's compatible with your local carrier )
and they have 4 LTE modules , each with different bands support :-

I still didn't go through it to see which LTE module is fully compatible with the carriers in my country.
BTW , Lenovo Thinkpad X1 tablet is another option of 2in1 device with core m and LTE (and with pen and type cover ) it's also not available yet
I don't believe that model has WWAN. See the attached that I printed from the HP web site. Looks like you would need the T8Z06UT.
