I know there are multiple threads where people posted chat transcripts where they were told Nov 16th was the release day. I did the same thing to see what I would be told, and was told "we cannot, say, but sometime in Nov".
Its officially posted, so no more questions or doubt are needed.
I am excited.
I wish it hand a dockable keyboard similar to the Samsung and Asus Win 8 x86 tablets, but 11.6" seems to be too big and hefty to use primarily in "tablet mode". Something lighter and thinner than the iPad seems to be a perfect tradeoff for a smaller screen...for me anyway.

Great news... Im excited to check it out too! Next question will be where can we buy and / or check it out in person.
I think at the Microsoft Store pre-order info page it said something about Staples being a seller. I hope they will have it in store to try out.

Still waiting for my Asus Vivo tab or HP Envy X2, who knows when those will actually ship in here Europe. If they can't get them out this year i will do something silly and buy new iPad.

Just checked Microsoft's store again and the Thinkpad Tablet 2 is showing a ship date of 12/31/12 now!!! Of course the one tablet I had interest in gets pushed into the new year :(

I was super excited to get a Thinkpad Tablet 2; instead, Lenovo continues to churn out a bunch of odd, specialty items (the Yoga?? Really?). If it won't ship until 2013 then MS deserves every bit of criticism it will receive, and every dollar of lost profit to Apple and Google will be justified. Perhaps more than Sinofsky needed to lose his job over this.

Some of these other atom tablets being late seems more like a supply problem from Intel or hardware manufacturers focking it up.
