Lenovo confirms will launch its first Windows 8 tablet in October, but decides against revealing the price for now.
The ThinkPad 2 boasts a 10.1-inch screen, an Intel Atom processor and therefore runs Windows 8 Pro, which packs a mighty 128GB of memory.
The slate comes with an optional digitiser and pen, 3G and 4G LTE connectivity (4G is only offered through AT&T) and a nice set of security features including a fingerprint reader and IT manageability technology.
Furthermore, the ThinkPad 2 features a full-sized USB port, a mini HDMI interface and dual-facing cameras, while a keyboard and dock are optional extras.
The Chinese vendor has coyly decided against naming the price of the Windows 8 tablet for now. Pricing does remain a hot topic of conversation when it comes to Windows 8 tablets, with many believing that this will be a crucial factor if Microsoft’s OS is to compete with Apple’s iOS in the tablet market.
The ThinkPad 2 passed FCC testing last week, along with two new transformable Windows 8 tablets from Taiwanese vendor Asus.
