Re: NFC and 3G/4G on TPT2

2013-01-22, 13:52 PM

The lenovo web site and spec sheet both list 3G/4G as an option, yet you can't purchase it and the Lenovo staff have no idea when it will be available. Seems a bit dishonest to me to advertise it but not make it available.

Re: NFC and 3G/4G on TPT2

Can't agree more. I have a strange feeling of being constantly fooled or at least not being told the complete story when buying/using the TPT and TPT2 ...

 

A request to everybody: 

 

Would you mind posting here if you know when TPT 3g/4g/LTE is available?

 

Many thanks in advance

The Integrated Mobile Broadband (Sierra Wireless EM7700 - Gobi 4000 option came up today on the order site.  No NFC with WWAN though.  Ordered mine today. Has a ship date of 2/23

Lenovo did me a solid when they replaced my TPT1 after a year of great frustration, and issued me a 3682-29U TPT2 with NFC.  The manufacturer is listed as "Broadcom Internal (Proximity)" under device manager.

 

So, I don't know where you can order/buy one yet, but they are producing TPT2s with NFC already.

I can confirm that as well - I am writing this on a TPT2 using my 3g connection while on holiday. It works well (although other parts of the machine are faulty and I am waiting on a replacement.)

 

In Australia/New Zealand they have been selling models with 3g and nfc.
