    It has definitively a digitizer. All ThinkPad Tablets 2 can be used with the pen, so all have a digitizer.. Stop writing about things you don´t know.

    That's what we thought about the Samsung ATIV Smart PC, until Canadian buyers started receiving units without a pen slot... :p

    I'm just writing from the Lenovo site where it doesn't list a digitizer. It may have one after all, but according to Lenovo it doesn't. It's right there on there product listing. Stop writing about things you don't know.

    Several resellers of the keyboard dock list its weight as 12.5oz (0.78lbs, 354g). That's great for lightweight travel, even if it does have a fixed angle.

    Wow I'm genuinely afraid for my order now.

    First, I read a tonne of bad comments about customer service. Fortunately, customer service has been really great for me.
    Secondly, order my TPT2 on 14 Dec. Took 4 days, 18 Dec to change from Released to Manufacturing to In Production.

    Now we play the waiting game....hopefully it takes around 2-4 days to build? seriously though, my money cleared in 24 hrs, so they should've started building right away instead of leaving it as "Released to Manufacturing" for 4 days >.< N if this is built in china, well let's just say shipping isnt exactly fast from china to australia. So much waiting :(

    Well hopefully it comes around new years day. I still have faith :thumbsup:

    Where did you place the order? I don't see where can I place a order of Thinkpad tablet 2 on Lenovo's website.

    In production doesn't seem to mean too much for the Lenovo order system. My order has been in production for a couple of weeks. When I ordered, the 3g model was supposed to ship on 18 December, which has been an gone.

    Maybe they will ship on Friday (21 Dec). Lenovo's customer service has been terrible. No update whatsoever when the shipping date was missed and when I called customer service I was told they had no update from the factory.

    I am in the U.S. and have been closely following this product since about the time the Microsoft Surface came out. I am a big advocate of the Lenovo brand and their wonderful keyboards.

    If memory serves me correctly, the website indicated you would be able to order the tablet on November 18. That date came and went, and the website reverted to "Coming Soon". About two weeks ago, I chatted with a rep who told me that I would be able to order one on December 18. That date passed, and the "Coming Soon" was still posted.

    Finally, this morning, I was surprised to see a posted price, but still no order button. The price did shock me, though. $1,109.00? That is twice the price of what other vendors are asking for an Atom based tablet with the same storage. From what I have gleaned from the reps, though, the tablet, when released, will have 3G/4G LTE connectivity. Still, I could not justify paying that much for an atom based processor and so little storage. I am guessing the posted price has to be a mistake. It differs substantially from the Microsoft store price of $699 for model no. 367926U. If it holds, I guess the customers of the Microsoft store will be happy about the price guarantee they give!!

    The vendor pricing here in Germany is on par with other tablets... 550&#8364; for the basic version with 32GB, ~700&#8364; with 64GB and pen (64GB Samsung ATIV with pen is 700&#8364; here too)...

    I'm guessing the $1100 price tag is an error...

    I has to be. Either that, or they are tired of questions about the release date, and are trying to get rid of prospective purchasers!

    I did find a link to the Lenovo brochure, December 2012 version, which includes some detailed information about the Tablet 2 product line and accessories http://www.lenovo.com/psref/pdf/psref426TS.pdf
