    I managed to get my hands on an Acer Iconia W510. I like it a lot, but I had to make some compromises to get a tablet TODAY. So, no Wacom digitizer (but I have a keyboard dock), no micro SIM ( but I can tether), so I'm happy with it. I wish I knew what was causing the delays though.

    Dude, these two are totally different. Sure they do same thing but design-wise they are different.

    Design-wise as in engineering design. Not fashion design. I was referring to the way the stand mechanism works by lodging the front cover into the back latch, and how the only orientations are landscape at a steep angle and landscape at a less dramatic angle. It really is a good mechanism, but you can't deny the similarities in construction and stand mechanism.

    Note sure if this was mentioned somewhere before. One very exciting feature for me about the TPT2 is that you can charge the tablet via the mini-usb as described in the video below (mentioned in loc 3:03)

    For those interested availability of the wifi only TPT2 is now showing up on the Australian and NZ Lenovo stores as 1-2 weeks plus delivery. It was 2-3 weeks so it looks like stock is starting flow through the channel. The 3g model is still showing a releasing on 18 December.

    The Dell Latitude 10 has that dual charging ability too. And a replaceable battery, but no place to put the stylus.

    What's the latest on release date? I swore I was going to wait for the surface Pro, but I don't know if I can hold out and both the TPT2 and the Dell latitude 10 really really look nice.

    $699 without a pen
    $729 with a pen


    Wow, it is hard to believe that they would sell a tablet without a pen, X Tablet never sold without a pen, so, $30 will get me a pen?? Do they really want to save $30? or make $30??

    This probably doesn't help much but HP is pushing the Envy X2 date as well...but not officially. Basically the ability to order began last week but the 'estimated ship date' moves out 1 day for every day that goes by...not a good sign. I have no clue what the integrators were thinking this Fall and why these machines were not ready to go on Oct 26. It is a huge blunder to miss the holiday season like this unless they are not really after 'consumer' customers, which is what I suspect. Lenovo, Dell, and HP make their money with corporate sales so there is aparently no hurry to get these out to supply our piddly little orders...

    Edit: oh, and by the way, the pen for the Envy X2 isn't even available on the web site yet! Hard to believe. I thought Lenovo was going to beat everyone but nothing is still available except the Samsung twins (in limited supply)...

    I am in the same boat as you, as I said before, "She will call when she is ready" and I will wait for that call. I am willing to wait until it comes out. I have put some $$ away and hopefully, I don't spend it on anything else.

    The $699 on the Microsoft Store is the one with the pen. You can look up the SKU.

    Is there anything else included at $729? I find it hard to believe that they are going to gouge $129 just for a pen, or does that mean that the $699 one doesn't even have the wacom digitizer?

    Yeah it's right in the description: "and there's also an included stylus that lets you turn the ThinkPad 2 into a creative tool"

    Odd, a google search of model # 367926U which is the one on MS for 699 keeps showing it listed as 749. The listing for 699 is 367923U which doesn't include the pen. I wonder if MS screwed up their listing.

    I thought about getting a tpt 1 at outlet.lenovo.com , but they had been sold out except for the very expensive ones. Strange.
