Re: Helix Release Date discussion

I think I saw it listed in the device manager when I was having a look through yesterday. However, I can check for sure when I'm home tonight as I don't have the Helix with me at the moment. I've not tried using the feature as I'm not sure I've got anything that would work with NFC.

Yes it does have NFC. Haven't used it but I can switch it on and off.

Got an email from Lenovo UK saying the Helix is officially available. If you go on the website now, it lists three models complete with prices and links to resellers you can buy it from. Am personally relieved that they're listing the i7 model at more than I paid when I got mine last week and not less.

No LTE option. 

 

these same models have been available for weeks... just not from Lenovo...

 

with all the Helix  issues on the forum being discusses, I am glad I didn't purchase one.  I will wait for a better solution.

The product q/a site has the folowing info regarding mobile broadband / wwan:

 

  • 3G models with GPS will be available tomorrow, Friday, May 24 on lenovo.com
  • 4G/LTE models with GPS will be available late July.

I'd be glad to hear of some better option.

It's simply the page you get when you click through to "shop" .... shows the two available models, and there is a q&a feature to the right of the photo of the Helix.  Here is the absurdly long url:
