Lenovo launched its first tablet ThinkPad series based on Google Android 3.1 operating system, primarily intended for companies and businessmen. The new gadget has a diagonal of 10.1 inches, is based on nVidia Tegra platform 2 and includes a full size USB 2.0 port, plus an SD card reader.
IPS uses a tablet display with large viewing angle and comes with 25 preloaded applications, including a full Office suite and a Citrix client, which will be appreciated mostly by companies. Autonomy is listed by the manufacturer to eight hours of continuous use with WiFi on and something less when internet connection is via a 3G network. With the new device, Lenovo has launched a keyboard dock, which transforms into a tablet PC ultra-portable with a significantly better ergonomics when it comes to entering text. Optionally, users can use a stylus, for operations requiring a high level of precision.
The design of the device fits in the ThinkPad range, with simple lines and dotted with red controls. The keyboard includes an optional optical pointer in the center and two buttons to click, perhaps the best known design element of the full range ThinkPad, IBM initially created two decades ago. Tablet will be available in August at a price of $ 499 for 16GB version storage. More details on www.lenovo.com.
