umm, this may sound a bit silly, but will a Helix with 4G / LTE work with a 3G network?

 

I'm not familiar with the mobile connection technologies.

as per my understanding, yes it will support both 3G and 4G.

If you get US model, it will have MC7700 (Gobi 4000 chipset), which operates on frequency bands 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

So to get it right, my german cellular provider uses the following frequencies:

 

  • Telekom Deutschland GmbH (uplink) 1969,8 – 1979,7 MHz (downlink) 2159,8 – 2169,7 MHz

 

Will it be usable with US model's MC7700 chipset ?

I wish I hadn't...I think that's why I have the USB problem.

Sadly lenovo's launch timing of the helix really sucks, had they released it on time I would have ordered one for sure, as I'm sure many people would have,  ever since seeing it at CES I've been lusting after it as a developer laptop/tablet.

 

Now with the announcement of haswell and microsoft announcing that a new round of cheaper faster tablets will be released by the end of the year the helix has lost it's appeal, so much so, that when I had the opportunity to order one I passed and ordered a chrome pixel instead.

 

By the time the helix is officially launched it will be outdated by faster cheaper models. That makes me sad, I was really hoping it was going to be a great product for 2013.

Yeah, but then we'll probably see the same delays we're seeing now, and with the previous round, so when they say end of the year they probably mean March.

4/16 update changelog is quite long

 

UEFI: 1.10 / ECP: 1.13

  • (Fix) Fixed an issue where the computer might hang when attaching/detaching
    the USB device to/from the computer or Docking Station.
  • (Fix) Fixed an issue where no sound was heard from the ThinkPad internal
    speakers while the computer was locked when SmartAudio was set to
    Multi-stream mode and headphones or external speakers were attached to
    the computer. This fix is to follow Windows' behavior.
    Hint: To disable sound from the internal speakers in lock state, press the
    mute button on the keyboard.
  • (Fix) Fixed an issue where some settings were not updated immediately after
    loading default settings in ThinkPad Setup.
  • (Fix) Fixed an issue where some unexpected characters might be shown on the
    left-top on screen when a diagnostic splash screen was displayed.
  • (Fix) Fixed an issue where the LED on the Fn key of the Enhanced Keyboard Dock
    for ThinkPad Helix might not be updated when docked with it.
  • (Fix) Fixed an issue where the system configuration including cTDP might not
    be updated when docked with the Enhanced Keyboard Dock for ThinkPad
    Helix.
