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).
