    You guys might want to add whether it's a preliminary shipping date or if it actually says it shipped on that date... i.e. is Mattalter's supposed to ship today, or has he already received a shipping confirmation?

    I guess we can update when we get a real shipping date, but if it's in the future it is implicit that is likely subject to change.

    I pretty much ordered all the accessories (including the two types of case), and everything has shipped except for the tablet, the keyboard and the dock.

    I wanted NFC but the mess up with the " security feature" ended up affecting my order. My consolation is that I don't see much use for it in the tablet if you have it on the phone, considering I will not do any transactions with the tablet it would just be extra weight...

    I see a clear trend: what is delaying the tablet for some is the selection of windows 8 Pro...it would have been better to just upgrade it to Pro ourselves.

    Looks like we can start a support group for Chicagoans impatiently waiting for their ThinkPad 2s. I did notice that at least one person with a Win 8 Pro config has a tracking number, so perhaps the OS version is not the issue. Hard to believe that imaging the device with the right OS would be responsible for a nearly 2 week additional delay.

    Well, I just got the tablet/keyboard sleeve via UPS today. Expect the Tablet next Wednesday. Anyway, the sleeve is very well built. Quality exterior. The red interior is a nice soft suede. It stays closed with magnets, and it looks like when it has the tablet and keyboard inside it will not be much bigger than a 200-300page standard hardback book.

    Well my tablet arrived in Kentucky, but is now stuck in customs. According to this Shipment stuck in customs - Page 10 - Lenovo Community it may be a long while before I get it delivered.

    I was promised by a sales rep that it would be shipped by 28 Dec. Really thinking of exercising some rights under the Australian Consumer Law for misleading and deceptive conduct...

    Had a ship date of the 1/9 now changed to 1/15. Called them and they said it would ship by 12/31. I don't believe anything I hear. Maybe by the end of the Jan it might ship.
