Lenovo, a leading manufacturer of desktops and laptops has announced the launch of its first commercial tablet named ThinkPad Tablet 2 powered with Windows 8.
ThinkPad Tablet 2 will have a big 10.1 inch screen with an Intel Atom processor and 1366 x 768 display dimension. The device will have a 10 hour battery life and a micro HDMI slot with a pretty convincing 10 hour battery life. The tablet has a 9.8 mm thickness and helps in capturing amazing snaps and engaging in a video chat with the help of 8 MP rear and 2 MP front camera.
As of now, the tablet will be released with Wi-Fi support but there is a possibility of 3G and 4G support in the near future, says a top official who works at Lenovo. The tablet also includes an NFC radio, a fingerprint reader and an optional digitizer.
“The design looks bold and sturdy enough to list down the ThinkPad Tablet 2 as one of the premier Windows 8 tablets to look out for in the markets”, says a gadget freak customer.
From my point of view, Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 looks like a strong competitor for Microsoft Surface, which will be released later this year.
I am sure many other manufacturers such as Asus, Toshiba will release their Windows 8 tablets soon and it will be a tough task for the consumers to pick a suitable tablet for their personal and business purposes.
