X1C7 Custom Order: only waiting for Fibocom 860 and NFC - wait or don't wait?

2019-07-31, 15:32 PM

Hi All:


as Icy Lake appears to be basically vaporware for the X1C7 by most accounts, or at least not coming in the next, say, 3-6 months' time, my only two items that i'm waiting for are:


-  Fibocom 860 (for its 2x2 antenna and MIMO capabilities)


-  NFC (not that important but if available, why not?)


i'm now wondering how smart it is to just wait and wait for the Fibocom 860 as there is no one who can tell me if and when it would arrive - if ever!


the NFC is really not that important, but if available, why not?


so, if eventually, the Fibocom 860 turns out to be never showing up, or if someone  knows that it won't show up, then i'm really ready to customize and order now (giving up the NFC which isn't that important to me).


the issue is:  will the Fibocom 860 show up?
