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

2012-03-02, 14:57 PM

Any news yet Mark. I just purchased my K1 yesterday from BestBuy. I like it so far, but I could really use that USB host cable so I can connect to my WD Passport directly, rather than going through my Netbook.

 

Please advise soonest. I find it odd like the others, that this part is not available nor has been available. My K1 says it was built at the end of November last year and the documentation contained in it in the Quick Guide identified the USB host cable as an optional accessory. Plus it should have been on the radar for alot longer than it has been. I mean really, who wants to connect a portable HDD to a computer/laptop/netbook and connect the tablet to it as well in order to transfer files from one to the other...

I too just got the K1 from bestbuy and am disappointed to find that the "optional" usb host cable is not easily found ANYWHERE.  Please,please get this product out and available for purchase in the USA.  One of the main reasons I purchased this tablet was so I could transfer photos from my camera to tablet while on vacation.

Me too, I wanted to be able to transfer pics from my camera's memory card to the tablet while away from home.

I'm glad that at least we have someone in Lenovo moving this along, even if it's at a slow pace...

Do you guys think it is better to order from a third party before it's actually available at their website? Do you think you will get it faster? I'm debating on whether to order it from Provantage or not.

I myself am a little hesitant to puchase it at this time since they cannot give a ship date and the price seems to be fluctuating depending on when you visit the website.

I wish Levono would get this done and over with. I can not order from Provantage. They are not shipping to Canada, plus the shipping is 3 times the amount of the host cable. Really hoping that it is sorted out before they scrap the k1. No disrespect to the ppl working on this problem.

How did you order it ???

Thanks for the tip Allan.  The price has indeed come down and the shipping price is also down to the normal UPS Ground charge.  So, I have been in touch with Provantage at 330 494 3781 and cancelled my previous order and placed a new order for the reduced price.  The person at the sales desk said that they expect to ship the USB cable in two weeks.  That was confirmed in an email just received.

Anyone knows if it will be distributed worldwide? I buyed a k1 in argentina and this cable is imposible to obtain, and then this tablet is unusable, I cannot put keyb, 3g, nothing!! :(

 

lenovo argentina can import this in some time?

 

lenovo staff: it's a very bad move from lenovo to put a special connector on a tablet while all tablets have normal or mini usb connectors, it's at limit of ridiculous things! special connectors are something that I think that not exist this days (as a 90 or 2k thing) but with standarization of usb how the hell lenovo why you have to do this? :(

thanks for any consideration to put this cable available worlwide and in special in argentina!
