    You are correct. I'm still not seeing it yet on our test bench Lenovo or Samsung systems so I'm assuming its not quite ready yet.

    Just as a follow up to this, I talked with our Samsung rep this morning and she wasn't aware the GB2 wasn't getting the May update yet. She called one of their techs and he said they had reported WiFi issues with the May update and the GB2 to Microsoft but hadn't gotten a response yet.

    Stay tuned I guess.

    Latest update (pun intended) but we heard from our rep that1903 should start showing up for the GB2 by the end of the week. There was an issue with Wifi stability that delayed it that supposedly has been fixed.

    I had somehow missed this: apparently Edge on Chromium for ARM (got all that?) is supposed to be a thing starting from Chromium 73. Can anybody convert that to an ETA?

    Any news on this that you're allowed to share? The official 1903 release was three weeks ago, but it's not yet showing on my Book2. Did anyone else receive it?

    Completely unrelated, did you ever try to find out whether the keyboard hardware in principle supports being disabled when folded back? I imagine some kind of (magnetic?) proximity sensor would be needed to detect the angle, so if that's not present we're SOL.

    Unrelated to 1903, I've been noticing that my Book2 is pretty slow to connect to a known Wifi network. As in 30 seconds between seeing the SSID and actually being connected to the internet. It spends a long time in the "connected, no internet" state. Is anybody else seeing this?

    Sorry for the delay in responding as I missed this.

    For the GB2 it's not possible for exactly the reason you thought. The Samsung rep thought it was a good idea for the GB3...
