The highly anticipated ThinkPad tablet is now official, but an exact release date has been a mystery until now.

The 10.1-inch ThinkPad tablet includes a 1280x800 resolution display, an Nvidia Tegra 2 core, Android 3.1 and up to a 64GB SSD. The unit starts at $479, which is $20 cheaper than what we expected. See our initial impressions of the tablet here.
