Lets hope the available date is correct.

 

Availability date: 20 Dec 2011 (Israel, United States)

Re: USB Host Part Number

Just got off the phone with sales bad news.  They could not find this part number in there system and told me to check back in a month or so and the part might be available.

I think that's right. It's only available in certain markets, apparently the European one!  In mine the Quick Start Guide has a page marked "Unpack (and check the components)" and there are six items 1) the K-1 Tablet, 2) the AC Adapter, 3) the Data line, 4) the Quick Start Guide, 5) Other publications, and 6) USB host cable (optional) Under that it states that "Some models may contain items that are not listed." and "If any item is missing or damaged, please contact your retailer."

 

It would seem that the statement "Some models may contain items that are not listed." would be better if it stated "Some models may NOT contain items that ARE listed. But the item in question, the USB host cable, is clearly marked (optional) so I wouldn't expect it to be included. However I imagine a female~female adapter on the end of the Data line would enable the attachment of USB devices such as hard disks, external optical drives, etc.

I got one and it works with a CF card reader to get photos into the K1.

Thank you for the response. Looks like it works on a sound principle, but is rather ungainly. Up until two days ago, there was not even a part number for the cable, so I think I'll be patient a little longer.

Parts department disavows all knowledge of said part.  Availability date in article is erroneous.
