When is the Helix release date?

2013-03-02, 3:54 AM
Specifically for the US, but I'm hoping it's out by mid March!

I can tell you that I saw a .pdf file on the web directed to Australia's sales force offering the double points for each Thinkpad Helix sold this month(by March 31).  The website/file has since been removed.  However, that definately implies that it will be released in March, not April.  Since the Helix website says Coming Spring 2013, my guess is around March 20th but of course I hope sooner.

Helix models and pricing had appeared for a short time on biggest eshops over here but got removed in a week. The pricing was completely insane (close to T530 models).

Well, based on my disatrous experiences with the X1C and the X1CT, the helix release date and delivery date will likely be at least 45 days difference.

How does the carbon and carbon touch release dates have anything todo with the helix release timeline. ??

They don't .

Maybe a Lenovo sales rep could actually chime in here ?

They should have an email sign up list for when it is released for end users and businesses IMO

Well considering they've totally botched the delivery of their two most recent flaghship devices for Thinkpad, I think that is relevent.  How could it not be?  And the fact they have pushed it back 1-2 months already....

I am told April is when Helix is released.

May this year, be the year of 'DO'!

In a Helix thread at tpcr it was mentioned that the Helix will be widely available in May, and 'limited shipments' starting march, with some screenshots that lend credibility to the claim.

One more data point suggesting an April US release:

For what it is worth.  When I ordered mine a few weeks ago I received an email of a 22 April Shipment and 29 April delivery.
