Lenovo accidentally leaks details of powerful new ThinkPad 10

Lenovo is ready to launch a new ThinkPad 10 tablet after one of its worldwide sites accidentally leaked details on the upcoming offering.

The company only featured the new tablet on its site temporarily, according to Engadget, with the Australian branch of its online shop showing the new slate well ahead of its actual release.

When it comes to a product specification it has an Intel Atom quad-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz, with the device able to be ordered with up to 4GB of RAM and internal storage options up to 128GB.

The 10in display has a 1,920 x 1,200 full HD resolution screen and there is an 8-megapixel camera on the back as well as a 2-megapixel lens on the front with the whole show run by Microsoft Windows 8.

Whilst this isn’t a major departure from the previous Thinkpad 8’s specifications, it’s likely to be the added extras that bring it onto a level above the smaller sibling. It’s speculated that the extra features could include tablets with LTE data capabilities or the ability to input data using a pen, and there will be a choice between a basic dock, keyboard dock and keyboard case.

The predecessor, the ThinkPad 8, has an 8.3in screen with a 1,920 x 1,200 full HD resolution with a powerful Intel quad-core Bay Trail processor, 2GB or RAM and up to 128GB of onboard storage depending on the exact model.

Nothing concerning the price or release date of the new tablet was revealed on the Australian Lenovo site and price-wise it is likely to be a significant amount more than the $399 [£237] ThinkPad 8 due to the processing power and display improvements.
