The x220 Tablet is not available

 

Display type

    12.5" HD Multi WW 2x2
    Selecting this option may delay your shipment more than 4 weeks.
    [$0.00]
    12.5" HD Multi WW 3x3 No Camera
    Selecting this option may delay your shipment more than 4 weeks.

 

Why even release a model when both screen options are delayed more than four weeks? It's a phantom launch. No real product is available. I first checked this an hour or two after "launch" so it's always been like this. This is rediculous and is just a cash grab with the idea "see! it's available, please don't give your money to another company".

 

Don't release products you can't ship. Don't release products before every major option is available, i.e., Gorilla Glass, i5, i7 processors...

It's interesting that apparently the Canadian site actually tells you in advance that there will be a 4+ week delay. On the US site, none of the options have notices saying they may cause delays. The order says "ships in 8-12 business days" all the way up until you check out, at which point it changes to "estimated ship date" in 5+ weeks (5/27/11).

That's probably because it's illegal to lie in Canada. Smiley Wink
