X60 Tablet PC shipping delays – a word from Lenovo

We’ve been in communication with Lenovo on the X60 Tablet PC shipping delays over the past month, and they have pointed us to the lenovo blogs where they addressed the issue on Monday, January 8th.

Here is their post and a link to the comments posted by readers:


Lately we’ve been getting a few missives on ThinkPad X60 Tablet shipping delays and wanted to take a moment to address them.

The good news is that the ThinkPad X60 Tablet continues to get rave reviews and is in very high demand since it was announced in November. That same month, we got word from one of our main panel suppliers that there could be some delivery issues. As we rolled into December, it looked like we’d made it over that hurdle, and were comfortable that we could ship SXGA+ models that month. However, it turned out that the panel in question was still experiencing a shortage, and we had to bump our delivery dates. We expect to be shipping ThinkPad X60 Tablet PCs again in bunches this month.

We apologize to all of our customers for the delays and thank you for bearing with us.
