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

2012-03-05, 15:49 PM

Am I missing something? That doens't look like a host connector. It looks like a USB plug, which I've already got with my K1.

The website selling it does have a pic of what they are selling. Thats why some opt to wait out if its indeed a usb host cable or something else. For all we know you might get a a baby gorilla when they delivered it you after you oredered.

If you go through and look at the photos they have for other K1 products they all show the same USB hub image.  I'm pretty sure it's just a stock photo they dropped in since they don't even have the product in their hands yet.

 

Herman, I noticed your ID is your callsign.  I'm KA8QYU :)

Not sure what you mean by "am i missing something", but the provantage website is showing a generic image of another product. The other pics and videos that have been posted in this thread do look like a USB host cable, not the usb data transfer cable that is included in all of our K1s...

Yes, you are missing the disclaimer that the product shown may or may not represent the product you are ordering.  Make sense?  Not to me, but that is what it says.

Hello Lenovo support... any update to when this will be available??  I really need this cable and if I cannot get it before my return date I will have to take my purchase back for refund.  This is a deal breaker for me.

Yes the K1 is perfect for HAM Radio but worthless without the USB connection. I need a firm commitment from LENOVO soon.

I have a new ETA from Provantage for March 20 for the K1 USB cable.  Let's hope.
