Lenovo has announced the specs of its Windows 8 tablet, called the Thinkpad 2.
The Thinkpad 2 will have a 10.1 color LCD touchscreen with 1366x768 resolution. The tablet will run an unspecified version of Intel's Atom processor, which means it will run standard Windows 8 and the standard suite of desktop apps. Also unspecified is the minimum amount of RAM (I'm guessing 2 GB) and storage (16 GB minimum, I'd guess). The tablet will weigh 1.3 lb. Battery life is estimated at 10 hours, but given the processor, I'm skeptical.
The base Thinkpad 2 will have WiFi only, and will sport 8 megapixel rear-facing and 2 megapixel front-facing cameras. The Thinkpad 2 will offer mini USB and HDMI ports. 4G (LTE) cell service is optional. AT&T is rumored to be the carrier. A docking keyboard with Lenovo's trademark TrackPoint "eraserhead" mouse pointer in the center of the keyboard, a digitizer (for stylus input) and fingerprint reader will be additional options.
I expect Lenovo is just the first of several manufacturers which will have tablets available when Windows 8 is released on October 28.
