More news on tablet front shows us that Lenovo is gearing up to announce a new tablet that would be loaded up with Android 3.0 aka Honeycomb. A site called ThisIsMyNext has showcased images of the device and it seems this information wasn’t exactly officially sent out, in other words, Lenovo has a leak.
Desigend for IT as well as Business professionals
We can expect quite a lot of technologybased goodies with this tablet that seems to have no name yet, other than ThinkPad Tablet, take a look –
- 10.1-inch 1200 x 800 IPS touchscreen display
- “true pen” stylus (add on)
- Dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor
- 3G & 4G options
- Bluetooth, USB 2.0 + micro USB
- front and rear cameras
- 16GB/32GB/64GB storage capacities
- SD card slot (full sized)
Expanded video codec support
This is their second tablet after the LePad and word is that the UI would most likely be similar. The story also mentions something about “seamless IT integration” which could mean it’s beefed up to offer even the corporate big-wigs all they need. It’s also said to have support for services that would be provided by Cisco, McAfee etc.
We can expect this in July, hopefully
There’s also a bit about this tablet having additional add-ons like a portable keypad docking facility so it could be used like a standard notebook. Lenovo seems to love this idea, and in all honesty, it seems like they’re idea is to cater to tablet as well as well as notebook users by offering a single integrated solution when necessary.
The site that posted the story also posted a spec sheet that mentions a July launch and a pricing of $499 (US) which works out to about – Rs. 22,000.
