That what I call a great support for a business product!!

Poor, very poor. Now I know why our company decided to go

for the ipad and NOT for the thinkpad.

 

By the way. Which backup software works without root?

Will we finally get root access to this obviously not business product?

Requires no root, IIRC: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rerware.android.MyBackup

 

I used this to backup prior to rooting my phone before and it's pretty darn ok.

I understand that this forum is "user driven", and that Lenovo don't have the resources to monitor and answer every question. 

 

However, they obviously have the resources necessary to monitor and weed out "spooky" replies..... 

 

Could anyone from Lenovo answer the questions in this thread??? We know you're listening!

does this "sunset" affect any of the other software on our tablets? For example, email, calendar, people? If I have to do a factory reset for some reason, will everything be restored and functional?

 

EDIT: I should add that I'm not worried about losing data.  I have my data backed up and my email, contacts, etc. are synced with other platforms so I'm only asking whether the tablet will be functional in the case of a factory reset once the app shop ends.

The answer is yes. A full reset will still get you back to fresh_from_the_factory state. The loss of the AppShop won't make a blind bit of difference as there is a backup hidden somewhere in the TPT's recovery partition that will be used.

What you won't get is any updates to any of the preloaded apps e.g: NotesMobile, Zinio, etc. If we're lucky Lenovo will continue to update the system apps (e.g GMail, Calendar, etc) via OTA updates. But I'm not holding my breath for this.

Lenovo is building me a brand spanking new TPT in the next 2 weeks to replace the one for which a warranty party is backordered indefinitely. I wonder if it will come with or without the Lenovo app store bundled.

Yup, they even removed the Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet from their site:
