Re: When and where the USB Host Cable for Ideapad K1 comes out?

I gotta tell you guys that this cable is worth the wait. If Lenovo would've gone with a micro usb from the get go, we would've not needed this, but they didn't.

I just came back from vacation, my wife and I took around 1500 pictures. We were able to plug the memory card to the USB Host cable, copy all the pictures to the tablet's sd card, view all the photos with an excellent resolution. I used the movie studio app (simple and bare bones but did the job) and put together short videos/slideshows with some of the pictures we took. I was then able to connect my samsung galaxy II with the same USB Host cable to transfer the videos to the phone to upload them to youtube. The tablet came alive with that cable. Without the cable I would've had to take a laptop with me instead of the tablet. More weight, a bit less portable.

Provantage used to ship out of the US, but now I can't find the cable listed there and the cached page says Not Available.

I would suggest sell your K1, find a K1 from ebay UK or Amazon UK since you are in Europe. Tablets from the UK will have the cable in it...

Canadians and other international customers can try to order from Lenovo thru www.gamesforcanada.com

Don't be confused by games, they can order and forward anything.

I just called a Lenovo Rep, they said I would be able to order it from Canada at the beginning of May when they receive a new shipment.  Hopefully this is not BS.

Wow, I have been following this from the beginning of December and finally got an email saying mine has shipped!

 

Still crossing my fingers for the ICS update.
