    I agree. For something announced in January as 'now shipping' they sure are taking a long time to get to where they are going. They need faster ships!

    And people wonder why Microsoft felt the need to give a kick in the butt to its hardware partners!

    Has anyone ever contacted the HP sales team? Do you know if they give any discounts for this business device for students?:confused:

    Thank you in advance!

    I hope someone in here or Rick from HP can answer few question I have regarding the elitepad 1000g2. Currently I am not looking into getting an expansion jacket due to size and no USB 3 ports.

    Can I charge the 1000g2 using the usb cable from the 12W usb auto adaptor ? I dont care for the auto adaptor itself, but can I use the cable to plug into an external battery. According to HP the Usb charging cable requires a minimum of 5V @ 2.1 to charge the elitepad (I am hoping that applies to 1000g2 )
    When I travel, I always carry this Anker 2nd Gen Astro Pro 15000mAh Triple-Port External Battery Anker external battery. I would like to use this also for extra juice to power the elitepad. It also has 9v charging dc out, but I have not found any cables that I could use. I might have to hack a dc cable and rig to use with the 7.4mm smart cable for the elitepad.

    Also anyone who has the elitepad, will the Samsung 64gb pro micro sdxc work ?

    And between these 2 cases, what is more ideal ? Elitepad Dockable case (F1M97UT/AA) or the Elitepad Case (H4R88UT/AA). I would like to keep it as slim as possible and protect the screen at the same time. Also online on the hp page the dockable case looks dark gray instead of black ? Is the real color or just the lighting.

    I can answer 2:

    Yes, the Samsung micro card will work. I have the 32GB version.

    The H4R88UT case covers the sides and has rubber feet on the inside of the lid so when you fold it over, it acts as a no-skid surface. You might find the magnet it the lid will sleep the unit when folded over flat and moved around. I removed the magnet in mine. '

    As for the other case, everywhere I looked it appears to be gray.

    2.0, Thanks for into. I just got my elitepad over the weekend and so far really impressed with the device. (going to cancel Surface pro 3 I had on pre order) I ordered the elitepad dockable case (F1M97UT) and will see soon what that looks like. I didn't really like the look and style of the H4R88UT case based on the youtube videos. I also ordered the auto adaptor since, it was the only way to get the cable with male usb to 70 pin connector and will try that out with my Anker battery to see if works. I really hope HP comes out with a dock with Usb 3.0.

    Monty (and others),
    Why did you choose the Elitepad over the SP3? With the i3 model only slightly more than the Elitepad, it seems like you would get a lot more with the Surface. I'm wrestling with this myself. Both are a little more than I want to spend on a tablet. The Surface seems absolutely gorgeous, but VERY pricey as you move beyond the i3 model. Just wondering what you like so much more about the Elitepad. Thanks for your input! One last thing, did you consider the Pro Tablet 610 G1. At $200 less than the Elitepad, I'm seriously considering it, too.

    I would suggest to wait till September and order the HP Pro 612 tablet PC: Wacom digitizer, fan-less Core i, real Ultrabook-like keyboard and 14h+ battery time

    Huckle, looks interesting, but also appears to be 16x9 aspect ratio. I can't use that. I tried and with the amount I use portrait mode, I couldn't stand that ratio. With a 12 inch screen it would be even worse. The 3x2 ratio is one of the biggest selling points of the surface 3 for me.
