Anyone knows the difference between 1838 & 1839? I saw on Provantage's website list, the 1839 is about $60.00 more than 1838. Does 1839 come with 3G mobile capability?

It is possible the 3G version is ready and shipping to distributors. Hence the 42 on stock. But I wouldn't believe it until it's confirmed.

Can anyone confirm that the model 1839 comes with 3G?
I asked LENOVO received no reply.

It depends on the exact model you get. I have a 1838-2DG, it comes with an Ericsson 3G card. No need to upgrade.

To be more precise, I think that the only difference between 1838 and 1839 models is that the former are directly sell to end-users through large authorized dealers, these are the ones you can buy on the Internet, while the latter are models distributed to corporate customers.
The device label, as with other Lenovo --and previously IBM-- products, has two parts: a four-digit machine type (either 1838 or 1839 on the ThinkPad slate tablets) and a three-digit model. The latter is the one that matters to identify a given configuration. So, a 1838-2DG and a 1839-2DG are the same model, the former is the one you can buy from a Lenovo's authorized dealer while the latter is the one you get through your business.
