Lenovo now taking orders for the ThinkPad Tablet 2
Lenovo is apparently now taking orders for its latest business-class slate PC, called ThinkPad Tablet 2. The device, which was originally expected to reach customers on November 16th, comes with a full-fledged Windows 8 operating system, 10 hours of battery life, optional Bluetooth keyboard stand ($119.99) and a $99.99 docking station. The Chinese manufacturer claims the mobile system will start shipping in January 2013, priced between $649 and $729 depending on the model.
The 1.25lbs (566g) tablet is equipped with a 1.8GHz Dual-Core Intel Atom Z2760 processor, 2GB of low-power RAM and 64GB of storage. In addition, it sports an In-Plane Switching widescreen multi-touch HD panel that measures 10.1 inches in diagonal, support pen and touch input and has a native resolution of 1366-by-768 pixels.
Other features presumably include dual cameras, HDMI and USB ports, a built-in TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chip and pre-loaded Computrace software for enhanced security complemented by integrated Wireless LAN, Bluetooth, 3G and 4G LTE modules (on AT&T LTE) for staying in touch with colleagues, friends and family.
