ThinkPad Tablet 2 is the new tablet that is getting its final shape at the Lenovo camp. Going by the tablet’s naming, device can be considered a sequel to the ThinkPad that lenovo had launched last year. However, if that be true, the real surprise is the OS the device would run as its Windows 8 and not Android that would be running the entire show. The tablet though is aimed primarily at the business segment but it does impress with its spec sheet.
Likely to be based on Intel’s dual core Atom Clover Trail processor which would have at its disposal as 2 GB RAM. Internal memory strength stands at 64 GB and would weigh a convenient 650 gms. The tablet will have a 10.1 inch, 10 finger multitouch display having a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The tablet will also include an optional digitizer and will be NFC, and HSPA+/LTE capable.
The ThinkPad Tablet 2 will also feature a fingerprint scanner to allow for more security and will come integrated with a 2 and 8 megapixel camera at the front and rear with LED flash on both sides. A dual microphone array with digital noise reduction along with twin 1 watt speakers are the other salient features of the upcoming tablet. An optional keyboard docking station will no doubt further add to the tablet’s appeal, even more so if the keypad unit also included a power source of its own.
Pricing and availability details are a mystery right now though indications are that Lenovo would like to see the ThinkPad tablet 2 be seen both as a worthy alternative to not only the iPad but the host of Windows 8 tablet now under development.
