A leaked presentation has spilled the beans on Lenovo’s upcoming Android 3.0 powered ThinkPad tablet.
The confidential Lenovo presentation leaked by This is My Next (opens in new tab) reveals an impressive line-up of hardware and software specs that might shame the Motorola Xoom tablet.
The second tablet device after Motorola Xoom to run the tablet optimised Android 3.0 Honeycomb, Lenovo’s ThinkPad will run on a powerful Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and will offer both front and back cameras.
The tablet will come with a 10.1 inch touch enabled display offering a resolution of 1280x800 resolution. The ThinkPad tablet will weigh 1.6 pounds and will be 0.55 inches thick, heavier and thicker than both the iPad 2 and Motorola Xoom.
Lenovo developed an optional keyboard casing that will turn the tablet device into an Android powered laptop. The company will also be offering an additional ‘true pen’ similar to the one for HTC’s Flyer tablet, to write on the tablet device. Furthermore, the tablet device will have USB and memory card reader slots for enhanced connectivity.
The Lenovo ThinkPad, which will be launched sometime in July or August, will come in three versions: 16, 32, and 64 GB variants and will have a price tag of $499, just like the iPad.
