Re: So who's ordered one?

Useless without 3G.

 

So not yet.

Re: So who's ordered one?

I am waiting until the 3G options are released, too. Since it's for business, primarily, I have a feeling that many are.

probably limited stocks, or that the production haven't ramped up to cater to the demand? 

 

or Maybe the iPad effect?

Re: So who's ordered one?

I ordered mine on the 23rd and got a ship date of 9/12/11.

 

I personally don't see a great need for 3G since I have no intention of getting rid of my smart phone (I carry my phone most everywhere but, I will not be doing the same with the tablet).  I can create a mobile hotspot with my phone to connect the tablet to and there are plenty of free hot spots out there use.

 

I am really looking forward to the note taking ability.

 

I also took a chance on ordering mow because I think Lenovo would not want to tarniish the Thinkpad brand in the business community with a unit that is not ready for prime time.

Maybe I'll be the first owner Smiley Happy  Expected delivery date is 9-1-11

 

Cost Central shows the 16gb to be in stock (qty 22) @ $440.08

I ordered a 32gb from PCNation @ $547.90 w/ free FedEx 3 day shipping and no tax.  Supposedly, it even comes with the pen.  I called to confirm with ProVantage (same SKU) that this part# comes packaged with the pen, but I wouldn't be surprised if the rep is wrong.  Regardless, it seems to be the best deal around AND in stock.

Re: So who's ordered one?

Nice!

Keep us posted and please let me know if the 32gb model does in fact include the pen.

 

Was your order with ProVantage processed quickly?  I was about to place my order with them, but I read that they ship from the distribution warehouse to their main facility and then ship to the customer.  Not to mention, the $12.95 for UPS ground shipping.

Re: So who's ordered one?

It shipped same day out of a separate warehouse. The in stock count seems pretty accurate. I ordered yesterday. I am impatient so I paid the $30 for overnight. The estimate said $60, but it changed to $30 at check out. It was shipped within an hour after ordering
