Lenovo has expanded their successful business-oriented line of computing devices to include tablets. The company introduced two new slates earlier this year – the consumer-oriented IdeaPad K1 and the business-minded ThinkPad Tablet that we are examining today. Sure, Lenovo has been producing Windows-based tablet PCs with touchscreen functions for quite some time, but the ThinkPad tablet isn't any of those.
We've come to know Lenovo as one of the premiere business notebook manufacturers over the past years. Having worked with several ThinkPads during my time at TechSpot, aside from a few small quirks, each unit left me looking forward to the next. The foundation for Lenovo's ThinkPad line has been a uniform style that's stood the test of time quite well. It's simple, practical, recognizable and instills the value of quality in the minds of many. It'll be interesting to see how that tradition has carried on to their first ThinkPad tablet running Android.
Lenovo's ThinkPad Tablet is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core 1GHz processor, 32GB of internal storage, 1GB of DDR2 system memory, Android 3.1 Honeycomb, front and rear cameras, 8.02.11 b/g/n/ Wi-Fi connectivity and a 10.1-inch WXGA (1280 x 800) IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass. The slate is ever so slightly larger than the Acer Iconia Tab that we looked at back in August, both in thickness and height.
