Lenovo Windows 8 ThinkPad Tablet 2 Specs Leaked

Thanks to an Anonymous source, we’ve recently come across some leaked specs of Lenovo’s latest and first upcoming Windows 8 tablet. Called The Windows 8 ThinkPad Tabet 2, this Lenovo manufactured tablet is meant to compete directly with Apple’s New iPad, with similar specs and dimensions, but with the added benefit of being able to load pro (desktop) apps on it . The Thinkpad Tablet 2 will have a 10.1-inch screen, with an IPS display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 (720p) and it weighs a max of 650 grams. It also tips in at 9.8mm thickness, which is slightly thicker than the iPad. One of the biggest features here will be the 10 hour + battery life that is being touted by Lenovo, something which we think will appeal to quite a few people out there. While the processor isn’t exactly given, we can be sure that it will feature the latest Intel Core processor (probably the reported clover trail), similar to many other Windows 8 ‘Pro’ Tablets out there. NFC is also included in the final run down, so those of you who are used to, or would like to start using NFC will get their chance here.

 

Those of you looking for some fancy multimedia options will be happy to know that is comes with a 8 megapixel rear camera as well as 1080p recording abilities. There iwll also be a 2 megapixel front facing camera for all your video conferencing needs. Lenovo also feel this has been designed for the ‘end user’ and the IT Manager in mind, so what they’re basically presenting is a top notch Business tablet, running a very powerful and user friendly OS – Windows 8.

Like we said, Lenovo were certainly going for the iPad, and their chart below truly shows that off. One thing we note is that Lenovo feel that they have more key points on their side over Apple’s tablet and they certainly feel that they can have more of an impact in the market thanks to their mostly superior specs. The tablet even comes with Lenovo’s very own range of accessories, such as a Precise pen for writing notes and key points, a Attachable hard keyboard with an optical trackpoint (much like Lenovo laptops) and even a security enabled fingerprint scanner on the back.

So what does everyone think about this business oriented tablet? Would this make you get a Windows 8 tablet over an iPad? Maybe over a surface even? We personally think it’s a pretty nice looking tablet, and even non-business folks might be interested in purchasing this tablet, if it’s priced right (no pricing info was leaked).

    Are you some kind of moron – these are fakes! you can see the spelling mistakes with the red squiggly lines underneath! LOL

  • TjaldidTjaldid

    You must understand that these were not meant to be made public, just internal sources so it wasn’t polished and made perfect.

    Red Squigly lines are there because we took the screenshot of it IN
    Powerpoint, so obviously it will have squiggly lines!

    Pricing is important for me.. Also, I’m not sure about the performance of Atom CPU. I’ll wait for this tablet, surface pro andI want to see what HP has to offer.

    Absolutely will want to look at this as I am a huge ThinkPad fanboy. I still have one that has a BW monitor that will still boot up in DOS 6.0 or something. And I have been using Windows 8 on a little old ThinkPad Netbook and it works great. I will not get it however if they abandon the TrackPoint on their keyboard accessory–which I hope lives up to their other keyboards and is integrated well . Windows 8 is really fast with trackpoint. My daughter has a TP and does not even use a mouse. I do use both. But mostly just the trackpoint. A simple movement with trackpoint gets you right to the corners fast where all the action is. Was thinking of a surface of course but really am anxious what Lenovo comes up with. Never worried about costs as long as in the ball park, and TPs always a bit more expensive, but also always have the best keyboard which is key to me. And the trackpoint. They always have that quality build also. So if it has ThinkPad on it, even if IBM does not own it anymore, I will always give it a serious look. they seem to take a lot of pride in that Brand Name. I have never understood why people use a trackpad when could use a trackpoint. Once the learning curve is over, there is no comparison. I only wish Lenovo would come out with a desktop keyboard as good as their laptop ones with a window key on it and a trackpoint. They have a pretty good one but no windows key.

    sad that there is no pricing yet

    I like the concept very much but, for me as a owner of half-baked Thinkpad Android Tablet, Lenovo has lost the leap of faith. I will very carefully test and compare it against the MS Surface Pro and other MS Windows 8 Pro tablets to come.

    Nothing to share on that front sorry.

    Won’t be till closer to date. August 15th is the rumored date that Lenovo will put this for Pre-order in China, so you can guestimate then.
