Announced in Summer 2013 perhaps, but the first models did not begin shipping until September-October 2013.  Outside of the USA, it was later than that.


The PSREF sheets show the announce date of each particular configuration.  When they are being phased out, the line becomes red.  I suggest you reference there for the avaible, and newest models: http://www.lenovo.com/psref/pdf/tabook.pdf.

Current: ThinkPad Tablet 2 | 64GB // ThinkPad T440s | i7-4600U | 12GB | 512GB SSD | FHD MT
Previous: ThinkPad T420s // ThinkPad T410s

Some T440s models were already shipped in Summer 2013. The T440s was announced in July 2013, here in Germany the first shipped models came in August - in China, Japan and Hong-Kong propably even earlier. I got my T440s in early September.


These however were not the regular business and topseller configs, only available in Education channels, they were announced in September 2013 on IFA.



originally, the new Intel CPUs, codenamed Broadwell (the 5th Gen Core i CPUs) were scheduled for summer (end of Q2). T450s was planned for June 2014, but was pushed back to the fall / the end of 2014, due to the delay of Broadwell. The new Broadwell ThinkPads may be announced on IFA 2014, IDF 2014 or CES 2015 (which would be the worst case).
