Gateway is Experiencing Shipping Delays

It looks like Lenovo is not the only one to experience shipping delay problems with their Tablet PCs.

Bpjen, a GBM Forum member and reader, has alerted us to a seven week shipping delay that he is experiencing with his Gateway S7125 Convertible Tablet PC order. Seven weeks seemed like an awful long time, so I followed up with our Gateway contact to learn more about this delay, and this is what they shared with us:


Thanks for your email and for alerting us to the comments. Right now, demand is exceeding our forecasts. We’re working diligently to meet demand for this incredibly popular notebook. I’ll give you an update if anything changes.

We’ll update everyone as we learn more from Gateway and as they address these backlog issues. Meanwhile, head over to this forum topic to comment and hear from customers on the bad end of this delay.
