The NEC tablet is now shipping in the UK - I just got mine today, with my choice being made based on reading the posts in this forum. So far - I'm not disappointed - the build quality is great, and it linked up to our office LAN with no trouble at all (and instantly wanted to download 23Mb of updates from Microsoft!)
Over here, it's called the 'NEC Versa T400' and ships with the integrated pen only, the CD-ROM drive, the desk-stand, and the power adaptor. The USB keyboard and large Wacom pen are extras. Any UK buyers need to be careful if they've been expecting to get the same specification as in other countries.
All of the bundled sample software included in the US also seems to have been withdrawn - Mine arrived with Word 2003, MS-Money 2002 and, bizarrely, a copy of 'Zoo Tycoon'.
NEC are the only source of T400's in the UK. It cost me a total (including VAT sales tax) of £1,580 - which I guess works out to around US$ 2,740
Now all I have to do is....
1. Pursuade our IT department to install wireless access points in the office.
2. Locate a USB DVD Drive. The Sony drive isn't available here, but there's a drive under the 'Cold Chisel' brand that looks pretty good.
3. Get my home PC fitted with an 802.11a wireless card
