Lenovo to debut the Windows 8-powered ThinkPad Tablet 2

The business slate PC will offer a Dual-Core CPU, 10-inch IPS panel, 2 gigs of RAM, a keyboard dock and NFC connectivity

According to a leaked company document, the Chinese tech manufacturer Lenovo will soon start selling a new portable device, called ThinkPad Tablet 2. Reportedly, the slate computer is aimed at business professionals on-the-move and is expected to hit the shelves on October 26th.

Perceived by many as Lenovo’s answer to Apple’s new iPad, the ThinkPad Tablet 2 will be powered by a Dual-Core Intel Clover Trail system on a chip (SoC) and the integrated HD SGX545 graphics processing unit. In addition, the device apparently sports a 10.1-inch IPS (In-Plane Switching technology for improved viewing angles), Anti-Glare, LED-backlit, 10-finger multi-touch widescreen display that features a native resolution of 1366-by-768 pixels and support for digitizer/pen input.

Beneath the display, the tablet offers 2GB of low voltage LPDDR2 RAM and 64GB flash storage complemented by built-in Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and LTE/HSPA+ radios. Users will be further provided with a docking connector (for a keyboard dock), one USB 2.0 port, a microSD card reader slot, a mini HDMI output, a 2MP front-facing web camera for video calls and an 8MP rear-facing camera.

The ThinkPad Tablet 2 is 9.8mm thick, weighs 650g and comes pre-loaded with Microsoft’s new Windows 8 operating system.
