Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 Now Official, Runs Windows 8

Another Windows 8 tablet was born through Lenovo’s ThinkPad tablet 2. Although android is clearly leading race in the mobile operating system battle, there’s no one stopping Microsoft to get back and regroup to have a fair chance of tasting the lead. With the help of Lenovo, they released their first shot at Android and iOS. Interestingly, this tablet may even be a competitor of Microsoft’s very own Windows Surface Tablets.
Tracing back to the roots of the first generation Lenovo ThinkPad, you might be surprised that it is originally running an Android OS inside it. Now, the Lenovo ThinkPad 2 will be a tad more of an enterprise tablet with the help of the premium looking Windows 8 Pro interface.
Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 Features
Lenovo ThinkPad tablet 2 gives a very good impression of a sturdy and sleek build. It has a 10.1-inch IPS screen display with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels which is good enough to give viable viewing angles. Lenovo ThinkPad tablet 2 will be powered by a processor manufactured by Intel and the tablet is claimed to last for 10 hours (of course, depending on the usage). The front and rear camera will both come with a 2MP shooter which can be very useful for on the go Skype video calls and chatting.
Other notable features are the NFC, fingerprint reader, micro-HDMI output, 3G or 4G LTE, and most interestingly – a pen. An optional keyboard with dock will also be available from Lenovo if ever you want it.
The price of Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 is still unknown as of now. The only thing that’s certain is that it will ship together with the Windows 8 this October. If you’re curious if this will land in the Philippines, there is still no announcement but as always, we’ll report on this immediately as soon as we get information so be sure to check this out often for updates.
