Re: few Little questions...

To me, the thread says quite clearly that the bootloader is unlocked and there will only be an upgrade to ICS and not to other Honeycomb releases (3.2 etc).

 

When a quote like "8. Lenovo encourages voiding the warranty independent software development and tech innovation." comes from a Lenovo employee, it means "unlocked bootloader" to me (at least this is how I translate "independent development"). And the "voiding the warranty" wink just strenghtens this in my view.

As for updates, again: "11. ThinkPad will push out Over the Air (OTA) update for Ice Cream Sandwich the next OS" and the note below "[...]clarify that OTA update is only for next major Android update."

So minor updates won't be available.

Regarding 1., I suppose you already know the link but anyway: http://www2.partnerinfo.lenovo.com/ca/en/thinkpadtablet.shtml

 

bottom-left there is a link to a PDF with the accessories (or direct link here: http://www.partnerinfo.lenovo.com/us/en/pdf/Top_Options_ThinkPad_Tablet.pdf )

where the Keyboard Folio is described as "leather" and another folio with no keyboard as "leather-like".

Re: few Little questions...

speaking to lenovo sales - useless.. can not provide ANY information until the product is released... if this is the quality of pre-sales service I can only shudder at thinking what lack of support you get once you buy lenovo... very disappointed.
