x86 Windows 8 tablets? They live!


I just received an email from Amazon this morning letting me know that the Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T that I preordered on Oct. 24th will be delivered by this Thursday.  It took long enough. Here's the what the email said:

"Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T"
 Estimated arrival date: November 15, 2012

The actual page for the item still shows it as out of stock however, Samsung ATIV with keyboard


They also have the i5 Acer Iconia W700-6691 11.6-Inch 64 GB Tablet in stock from various vendors. Other w700 tablets appear to be out of stock still.

After a blackout of information we are finally getting some delivery dates and devices in stock. It has only been over two weeks since these devices should have launched. Did they botch the launch of the x86 Windows 8 Tablet, yes.

But due to the fact that there was no reporting on this, except for here, most people have no idea about the x86 tablet launch debacle unless they ordered one. Now that they are starting to trickle in if any of our readers want to send in a review, email us at:
