The part is now on the U.S. Lenovo web site.

 

Update:

Well it was there 2 hours ago: $12.99, estimated ship date 4/16/12. I don't see it now. Strange.


 That's because they have already sold the 2 that they had in stock.  ;-)

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

Guys I have a Galaxy SII with me.

Since i have the cable which has Micro USB  at one end & Female USB on the other.

It allows me to connect USB pen drive to my galaxy SII.

 

Now when it comes to K1,

there has to be a charging point at one end and a female USB point on the other end,

to make Pendrive get connected to K1.

 

I dont see the female USB point on the pic mentioned on lenovo website.

 

Are you guys looking what u r buying?

 

Plz correct me ..If i m wrong somewhere!

The picture is not available anywhere yet, not on the lenovo website, not on any of the other websites that has this part listed, we just know that "0B65411" is the right part number because of the detail page, and we have a link to a picture on page 10 i think? And there's a video link of someone unpacking the K1 on youtube and the cable shows there. Cable has the prop connector on one side and female USB on the other.

 

You probably need to read this whole thread to understand everything that's going on with this product, not just the last few pages...

Since it appears that the K1 is going to live on as a Medion Lifetab P9516 in Europe, I would assume the USB Host Adaptor looks a lot like this:

P.S. No email update or change in ship status yet.

this really are good news, if that table is a duplicate copy of k1and have the same propietary port, croos fingers that medion make usb host cables available apart from the one that comes with the tablet.

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

ronydandjanyd:

 

I ordered mine directly through Lenovo by telephone a couple of hours after Mark announced that it was available.  Just FYI everyone, even though they billed me I still haven't gotten any e-mails about it and when I check on the order status it still shows "in progress" with 5-10-12 as the expected ship date.

Yes, that's the very cable we are all waiting for...

All kinds of good news today!

One: that although Lenovo has no interest in continuing production/support of the K1 there's another tablet exactly the same as this one is out there, so another company might be producing things that Lenovo won't be able to provide us with
Two: that although some people were already charged it doesn't mean the order was shipped out! I was going to throw a fit if people that ordered later were already getting their orders shipped since I placed my order with lenovo on the 22nd. I hope they start shipping out soon...

Keep in mind that in this case, "another company" is Medion AG, which Lenovo bought out last year.  Interesting that they are just rolling out this device (under a new name) in Germany, but have stopped sales under the Lenovo brand.

 

But maybe, just maybe, this might enable them to go on to support ICS on the K1/Medion platform.
