    Has anyone ordered one of these yet? We originally were supposed to get a look this week but Lenovo keeps pushing that back. Just curious if you did order , if you got a ship date.

    Don´t know if they are backlogged or if thee is a supply chain problem but every site selling them reports a five week delivery time. Kind of odd.

    So a rumor to add add to this. Its third hand so take it for what it is, but allegedly there are some yield issues with the display.(very low). I hope it's not something like the issues with the original galaxy fold.....

    I'm sorry, but I just think folding screens are really 3 years or more away from reality, despite finally getting to fold a Fold 2 screen for the first time at BB this weekend. It is an AMAZING device, and the crease from the fold is more felt than seen, but I still couldn't get over how fragile it felt (more user fear I'm sure than hardware failure).

    So, it’ll be mature enough to rely upon roughly the same time 5G is available & useful for the average person. :newpalm: Sounds about right.

    My simple calculation tells me that three years is the equivalent of at least five dstraussed devices. ;)

    Mental arithmetic was never my forte.
    All I count on is dudes buying me drinks.
