    My ship date is also just from 1/9 to 1/15. The status becomes in production. I selected to have "Security Features" but the initial spec of the order said "TPT2 NoFPR & NFC, WiFi model". However, from the part number&description it seems my machine might have a fingerprint reader or NFC. Very confusing...

    Lenovo page having issues, I can't even check my order. If they move it to 1/15 it will be the last straw and ill just order the Dell 10, at least they are more realistic with a jan 25 ship date.

    Lenovo's status page says mine is "out for delivery" which strikes me as odd because (1) it's a saturday; and (2) this is inconsistent with UPS.com's status.

    UPS will deliver some packages on Saturdays, but not when shipped at the "Worldwide Expedited" rate, which is how Lenovo shipped to me.

    Very weird. Called Lenovo, they said it should ship out Monday. Guy said the 1/9 ship estimate is just in case their parts suppliers are late or something like that. Well I guess I'll believe it when I see it.

    Mine is also delayed to 1/15. Does anyone know if this tablet has the screen glued to the digitizer like the surface pro? This will make the surface pro ideal for pen use. I wish microsoft had made a surface with the clover trail- it would have been a no brainer purchase for me. I don't know what microsoft engineers are thinking with arm and win rt, especiallY considering this http://www.anandtech.com/show/6529/busting-the-x86-power-myth-indepth-clover-trail-power-analysis/8
    I don't like the stylus experience and overall feel of the thinkpad tablet Ill consider returning it when the surface pro comes out. Or perhaps just wait for tablets with Haswell in q2/2013

    My tablet is scheduled for delivery via UPS on January 3. It is now in Louisville.

    The keyboard has not shipped. I ordered it separately.

    I'm seriously considering cancelling too. I regret that I ordered several accessories that are already here. I would like to hear from Terin Tamel and noxxle which were supposed to have their tablets today. I'm particularly interested in some thoughts about the inking experience, how the pen behaves in the corners of the screen and if the parallax and screen appearance is the same as the old x series tablets. If there wasn't much change in that regard I may just cancel too and get the surface pro.

    Philox,

    Mine is out for delivery. Should have it in a few hours. I'll post some impressions tonight and try to address your questions.

    Can't wait to hear what you guys think! I won't know exactly how jealous to be until I hear details about the light weight, the grippy back, and the eraser on the pen (all quite unlike the 500T).

    Here, I can't understand anything except the figures but it looks like the LCD is bonded to the glass on the thinkpad 2 which should greatly improve the stylus experience. See 26:25 at

    Perhaps someone that speaks Chinese can help to see if there are any other things we don't know. Lenovo again terrible at explaining to the consumers important details about the product.

    Ordered mine on 12/22. Received the sleeve last week, slim case today 12/31. Keyboard was supposed to ship yesterday (12/30) but still only shows "Order Received". The tablet now shows an estimated ship date of 1/15 and has been "In Production" for a while now. I would have loved NFC and the fingerprint reader but wasn't shown an option and still don't see one if I ordered today. Getting tired of waiting and may cancel.

    For those of you who have shipping dates coming up in the future, have your credit cards been charged yet? Mine was charged on Friday and I am hopeful that this means my tablet will be shipping soon. Or do they just charge the card at some arbitrary time between when you order and when the tablet ships?
