Lenovo Reveals Information of its First Windows 8 Tablet

Lenavo Thinkpad TabletIf you thought only Microsoft was making a Windows 8 tablet, you were wrong. Lenovo and other companies are already in this race. Lenovo announced its first Windows 8 tablet, the Thinkpad Tablet 2 way back in June but its only now that they’ve revealed the complete features and the release date.

The specs of the Thinkpad Tablet 2 make it one of the most feature-rich tablets available right now. Here are the key specifications:

  • 10.1 inch capacitive, multitouch touchscreen
  • IPS Display with a resolution of 1366 x 768
  • Optional 3G and 4G connectivity
  • Thickness: 9.8 mm
  • Intel Atom processor
  • 8 megapixel rear-facing camera
  • 2 megapixel front-facing camera
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • A stylus with a slot at the back of the tablet
  • MicroHDMI output/ NFC/ Ethernet Jack
  • Full size USB port
  • 10 hour battery life
  • Support for multiple users

Lenovo hasn’t announced the price for the Thinkpad Tablet 2 yet. Our only gripe with this tablet currently is its name. The original Thinkpad Tablet was an Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet so a new name would’ve been appreciated but still its not much of an issue.

The Thinkpad Tablet 2 will be launched in October. Since both Microsoft Surface and Windows 8 will launch on October 26, you should expect the Thinkpad Tablet 2 to launch on the same date or later that month.
