Lenovo Announces ThinkPad Tablet 2 For Windows 8
Lenovo has announced the ThinkPad Tablet 2, its first tablet specifically designed for Windows 8. At 9.8mm thick, it's powered by an Intel Atom CPU, features a 10.1 inch screen and weighs less than 600 grams (1.3 pounds) and runs Windows 8 Pro.
The tablet supports multiple input methods: multi-finger touch and an optional digitizer and pen, especially good for note taking, capturing signatures and completing forms. The optional ThinkPad Tablet 2 keyboard and dock can be paired with the tablet for more PC-like computing in the office. With an array of ports including a full-size USB port, users easily can attach existing devices like monitors and printers. The tablet can also be connected to high resolution displays through the HDMI port. The ThinkPad Tablet 2 is intended to be available when Windows 8 launches in October.
The multi-use tablet boasts differentiators that matter, including an optional digitizer and pen for precision input, 3G wireless with Lenovo Mobile Access pay-as-you-go plans and 4G models, along with security features like a Fingerprint Reader, IT manageability technologies, and corporate-level service and support.
