Lenovo continues to improve their business product portfolio by adding their latest multimode business tablet, the Lenovo ThinkPad 10.
When it comes to the company?s business line, Lenovo tends to take things slow as it has been two years since Lenovo announced the ThinkPad Tablet 2. Now it?s ready to unveil the device?s successor, the ThinkPad 10. The device doesn?t feel all that different sporting the same 10 inch dimensions, an Intel Atom processor, dual 8MP/2MP front and back facing cameras, and a 10 hour battery life. What the new version brings though is a sharper display at 1920×1200 and effectively matches rival tablets in the same price range. The device will also be offered with options for pen support, 4G, TPM, and fingerprint/Smart Card readers although most of these features, except for the pen support, won?t be available right away after launch.
In depth specifications for the device include a quad core Bay Trail CPU, up to 4GB of RAM, as well as 64GB-128GB of storage space that is also expandable via microSD. Connectivity will include support for Wi-Fi and 3G/4G LTE. The device will also be running Microsoft?s latest Windows 8.1 Pro operating system. The ThinkPad 10 will be shipping sometime in June and prices will start at $599.
Aside from the device itself, you will be happy to know that there are a ton of accessories for the device that you may be interested in. These accessories are all about turning your tablet into an all in one type of device.
The first is the $129 keyboard case with Chiclet type keys, a multi-touch track pad and a slot for the pen in case you go for the pen enabled models (which you probably should). Another case is the lighter folio case which has a flatter, Surface-style keyboard that has concave, space saving buttons. The case also sports the pen holder and will retail for $199 when it is launched in summer. There will also be a base station that costs $119 and will be primarily used as a docking area for your tablet. The accessory adds three USB 3.0 ports with one always on so that you can charge other devices like your phone. There is also an HDMI socket together with an Ethernet jack. Lastly, Lenovo is making a bigger version of the Quickshot case which allows users to quickly take photos even with the case on. The case will retail for $69.
Although the device took a while, they are giving users a lot of options to choose from in terms of accessories so that should be enticing for the buying market as well.
