Maybe it was ASUS with its Transformer Prime, or maybe it was Acer with the W510 and then again, maybe it was Samsung with its Series 5 Hybrid. Whoever it was that made Lenovo give a demo of its Windows 8 ThinkPad Tablet, we are not at all complaining. Now this was a prototype, and although the tablet is to be made available in the next 12 months, it appears to be promising. And we can always make do with another manufacturing giant releasing another Windows 8 tablet, since we will have more options to choose from.
The yet to be named ThinkPad tablet has a soft-touch black matte finish, true to the aesthetics of the ThinkPad. Although Lenovo did not disclose any of its specs, Engadget suspects it to have some low power Intel Clover Trail Processor. The battery is expected to run for 10 hours and maybe more. The tablet features a 10.1 inch 1366 x 768 display which shows some pretty sharp images and videos. Swiping through Metro seems pretty smooth. A 2MP camera sits at the front and an 8MP camera at the back, there’s a micro HDMI and a docking connector. This means that there are other peripherals in the pipe-line.
Lenovo seems to foray into newer fields with its Windows 8 Tablet, since there weren't any Windows 7 tablets. The Lenovo Windows 8 ThinkPad tablet is expected to make to the shelves in the coming 12 months. Until then keep posted for further details.
