Spoke too soon... the UK Lenovo Helix page changed again today. The 4GB RAM limit has moved to the full 8GB. However, another disappointing change is that the 4G LTE module has been swapped out for a 2yr old 3G Ericsson module:

at least it still retains the GPS functionality.


actually, it's good that they confirm the 3G, because 4G LTE was limited to US and AT&T anyway.

I do too, and if you have your phone rooted, most 'aftermarket' roms have tethering built in. Works great without issues and no additional apps.

For those that have it, how do you turn off the led on the thinkpad logo on the keyboard dock?

Looking at the spec/documentation, the LTE was compatable with EE (TMobile/Orange) here in the UK. It wasn't SIM Locked to AT&T. GIven that data contracts on LTE are so expensive, and it's unclear what the benefit is for a mobile device, it's no great loss for me.
