Lenovo announces the ThinkPad Tablet

Sorry for the late posting on this one, guys. Along with their announcement of the IdeaPad K1, the first Netflix Certified Android tablet, Lenovo also announced the ThinkPad tablet, a tablet targeted for businesses.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet features a 10.1-inch WXGA display with Gorilla Glass, a 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB to 64GB of internal storage, rear and front-facing cameras at 5-megapixels and 2-megapixels, respectively. The ThinkPad tablet also has 1 mini HDMI, USB 2.0, micro USB, and dock connector. In addition to internal storage, each ThinkPad Tablet will come with 2GB of cloud storage.

The ThinkPad Tablet will also have 3 optional accessories available at launch: a dock, tablet pen, and a keyboard folio case.

To appeal to enterprises, the ThinkPad Tablet includes software to secure the tablet, the ability to use your corporate network password to access the tablet, and the ability for administrators to distribute company-purchased apps to numerous tablets.

The 16GB ThinkPad tablet (Wi-Fi) will set you back $479 without the digitizer pen and $509 with the digitizer pen. The 32GB model (Wi-Fi) will set you back $589, but does come with the digitizer pen. The Keyboard Folio will set you back $99.

The ThinkPad Tablet will be available in August. You will be able to order it online starting on August 2 by visiting www.lenovo.com/tablets. A 3G version of the tablet will be available shortly after the launch of the Wi-Fi model.
