Business slimline. This 10-inch tablet with IPS display, 1280 resolution, wifi, GPS and 3G modem, and 64 GB SSD should delight Lenovo’s ThinkPad customer base. The price: 666 Euros. Matt display? Sadly not. But: a digitizer pen!

Heavy, black and hewn from the finest plastics known to man, the ThinkPad Tablet is exactly what you would expect a 'droid tablet carrying the TP moniker to be. The smart and business-like design is complemented by a solid range of physical connectors and the N-trig digitizing pen is sure to find fans, even if it’s not as talented as the Wacom stylus you get with the Samsung Galaxy Note. The only major grumbles are the abysmally quiet speaker and merely adequate battery life.

In the grand scheme of things, it would be harsh to completely dismiss the ThinkPad Tablet. While it does have the signature ThinkPad styling that many of us love, there’s sadly no excuse for the poor response time when trying to get any actual work done on the device. Even if Lenovo pushed out ICS to this tablet, I doubt that it would make much of a difference, thanks in part to the unresponsive screen. But on the flip side, it does pack a decent battery life and has a good selection of ports unlike its rivals, not to mention plenty of apps that can cater to the needs of IT Managers and the like. Though the use of the stylus outside of the writing apps is relegated only to navigation, it’s still a worthy contender if paired with a dock or the keyboard folio. But if you’re looking for a tablet purely for its multimedia use, then you might want to give this one a miss.

Its chunky profile and weight mean Lenovo’s executive ThinkPad Tablet isn’t for everyone, but its unique combination of class-leading connectivity, ruggedness, charging over USB, a pressure-sensitive stylus and keyboard folio accessory make it the most versatile option on the market. It also offers many business-centric features such as pre-installed Anti-virus and a vetted Lenovo app market that makes for worry-free downloading. As a tablet the Transformer Prime is superior, but if you’re a business user or a consumer who wants a stylus and the best typing experience going, the ThinkPad comes highly recommended. We can’t wait to see a slimmer sequel with Tegra 3 and a Wacom digitizer.

Discrete input devices are much more convenient than the touchscreen, especially when a lot of typing is involved (for example e-mail, chatting and word processing). At Rs.44,871 the Lenovo ThinkPad is a little more expensive than the Asus EeePad Transformer. Go in for the ThinkPad, if the digitizer pen is of prime importance to you (for digital art, note taking, etc). Otherwise, the EeePad Transformer offers better value for money with the provision of an additional battery pack and a USB port.

Like most products bearing the ThinkPad name, Lenovo's business-oriented Android tablet is a well-built machine with sensible design and software choices. But as far as stability and performance are concerned, the ThinkPad Tablet doesn't live up to its namesake. You do get features like a full-sized USB port, optional cellular connectivity, business-specific apps, and handy add-on accessories that will be appreciated by the corporate crowd. If you're not looking for a tablet for business reasons, but you're a Lenovo fan, the IdeaPad Tablet K1 ($499, 3.5 stars) is a better performer. But overall, it's tough to justify choosing the ThinkPad Tablet over a more powerful device like the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, which has the same base price, a much faster processor, more stable performance, and an add-on dock accessory that turns it into a laptop too.

If you are dead-set on the stylus pen, the ThinkPad Tablet could be the Android tablet for you. If you are an IT professional or a ThinkPad fan, again this could be worth your consideration. But if you can stand to wait a bit longer for Tegra 3, I think the performance benefits of four processing cores, improved graphics and Ice Cream Sandwich will be worth the wait.

We had high hopes for the ThinkPad Tablet, but overall it's disappointing. It doesn't feel like a distinctively designed tablet aimed specifically at businesses, like the Cisco Cius or the Motorola ET1, but more like yet another half-hearted Android consumer tablet with a few token business features. Bundling the stylus and increasing the poor responsiveness of the interface would go a long way to fixing this, but until that happens there are few reasons to choose the ThinkPad Tablet over the iPad 2 or any other big-name Android tablet.

Still, while I love some of this tablet’s features on their own, as a whole the ThinkPad Tablet feels more like a shopping cart filled with options, some of which work, some of which shouldn’t be here, and some of which are full-on failures. Coupled with the premium pricing, it all adds up to a somewhat questionable experience.

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet Review

While the ThinkPad tablet offers a great overall user experience for many users, the added features I just don’t see being all that useful unless you truly need them. I’ve enjoyed the time I’ve spent with it but would be equally happy with the Transformer. On a more business or student side of things this is a great tablet and has enough features to make it worth the added bulk and weight over other tablets on the market. This all comes down to personal needs and someone wanting a tablet will all the options and ports under the sun, that also has stylus input support as well as the latest Android 3.1 Honeycomb — this is the tablet for you.

The ThinkPad Tablet looks and feels bulky, but it's the first tablet to truly target business users with its configuration. The ThinkPad's pen input is a benefit; its poor built-in speaker a deterrent, especially for presenters who need passable audio. Still, together with the Folio case, this tablet makes a compelling case for business users and even people like students who want to switch more of their day-to-day tasks to a tablet.
