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

2012-02-08, 1:21 AM

So spoke to Sales support again and got this:

 

Please wait while we connect with you with a Lenovo Chat Representative.

You have been connected to _Cameron W.
Thank you for choosing Lenovo sales chat. I’m Cameron, your sales chat representative. My rep id is ***. What can I do for you today?
<me>Hi
I am looking into purchasing the IdeaPad Tablet K1 USB Connector Product # 0B65411
<CW>We actually do not have that product currently on our site for sale
<me>how about part # 0B65412
<CW>Unfortunately not that either.
<me>do you have an estimated time as to when it would be available?
<CW>let me check for you
<me>thnx
<CW>Actually there is no date
<me>great. any reason why the cable was included in the European release of the tablet but not the US version?
<CW>Sorry, I will not have an explination for that. That is more towards our products team and how they released the items
<me>ok, thnx

Soooooo, any one want to but a slightly used 3 month old Lenovo K1 32 GB Tablet?

I also spoke with LENOVO SALES.  Name of rep was Paul.  Much the same story.  He could not find the product number, so I gave it to him.  He said he would contact the K1 Product Manager and call me back.  I am still waiting and waiting and waiting.  My patience is coming to an end.

It would appear that you are a Lenovo employee; such being the casd, why doesn't your employer do something besides deny the existance of the part?  Why not secure some from Europe or open the European market to us?

One major reason for me to have the K1 is to use the DSLR controller app to control my DSLR camera, for which the cable is needed.  And to test Flash streaming.  I can do both with several other offerings in the market.  So, does anyone want to buy a 32GB K1 that was opened XMas morning and barely used? I have all packaging.

I once got in touch with someone who seemed (note SEEMED) to know what he was talking about.  I gave him the Lenovo part number and he said that he could not find it without the IBM part number!

The K1 would work for me if I could get the cable. I could wait a little longer and hope that the gentleman from Lenovo (who posted yesterday) could do something about it.  I guess I will give myself another week.

 

On the other hand I saw on B&H that the K1 is a discontinued item.  That could also mean that we will never see this cable.

please all click on "I'm too" button where say "xx people has found this problem" to show to Lenovo that we all have this problem.

 

I live in Argentina, here too the cable doesn't exists :( it's a shame that this happens, k1 is a nice tablet but put a not universal connector to use usb (and usb host) is a dumb move, most if cannot produce a host cable at time and now all we have this problem, you cannot put a pen drive, a keyb or mouse for this stupid reason :(

 

I hope that Lenovo release sooner this cable, it's a nightmare that lenovo still don't has released this yet.

----------------------------------------------
I have to buy a new tablet or device, it will not be a Lenovo.
I not have decent post sales support for a simple and essential cable of my ideapad K1 tablet for more than 3 months and counting
