Lenovo ThinkPad 10 business tablet: Specs, features, accessories, pricing & availability
Lenovo has just announced its latest ThinkPad 10 tablet running Microsoft's Windows 8, boasting high-end specs and features to support business users.
The new ThinkPad 10 is the company's latest 10-inch premium multimode business slate, allowing for a full PC experience without compromising on productivity or portability.
Moreover, the Lenovo ThinkPad 10 comes with a line of accessories specifically designed to boost the productivity of the mobile worker. Such accessories include a cover for extra protection, as well as a couple of keyboard options so that users can turn the tablet into a full ThinkPad laptop.
The new Lenovo ThinkPad 10 packs an Intel Atom Z3795 quad-core processor with either 2GB or 4GB of RAM, while storage options include 51B, 64GB, or 128GB. It sports a 10.1 IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. Other specs include an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front shooter, and a battery life of up to 10 hours of usage. Connectivity options consist of Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, HSPA+ (optional), microHDMI, USB 2.0, and microSD card slot. On the software side, the ThinkPad 10 runs Windows 8.1 or Windows 8.1 Pro.
"Pioneering for a superior user experience, ThinkPad 10 is optimized for business professionals seeking the ultimate in flexibility and connectivity. Constructed from premium aluminium with Gorilla glass to protect its ten inch full HD vivid display, the ThinkPad 10 tablet delivers a premium mobile experience with enhanced productivity capability in a purposeful lightweight design. Users can be creative with four flexible modes - Tablet, Stand, Laptop and Desktop," Lenovo explains in its press release on Tuesday, May 13.
"Customers want a versatile experience that adapts to their way of life and offers uncompromised productivity whether in the office or on the move," added Luis Hernandez, Lenovo ThinkPad vice president and general manager.
