Lenovo Unveils long awaited Windows Tablet

Lenovo has unveiled the long awaited Windows Tablet.

Microsoft Surface tablet now has a true competitor. The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 -- Lennovo's just launched first Windows 8 tablet, with an Intel mobile chip, making it a full-on Windows PC in a very light form factor. Yes, the tablet is shockingly light.

Specs of Lennovo ThinkPad Tablet 2:

The tablet has an impressive piece of hardware -- A 10.1-inch screen (great 1,366 x 768 anti-glare display with great responsiveness to touch), is 0.39 of an inch thick and weighs just 1.3 pounds, Intel’s Clover Trail processor (which can be called the shining attribute of the tablet. As before the Tablet 2, Windows 8 tablets had to be either Windows RT machines, which can't run older Windows apps and provide less than the full Windows experience, or devices with power guzzling Intel Core processors).

Clover Trail processor, is an Intel Atom system-on-a-chip (SoC) processor, designed for power efficiency and portability, negating the need for extra bulk and cooling fans. But the good thing is unlike Windows RT, it can it can run a fully featured Windows PC, i.e. runs Windows 8 Pro, and fuller versions of other utility apps like Office, Windows 7 apps etc.

That apart, the tablet has mini HDMI and USB 2.0 ports, a microSD card slot and stereo speakers. Connectivity options include 3G/4G connectivity, an NFC (near-field communication) chip, a fingerprint reader and a keyboard dock.

Price Lennovo ThinkPad Tablet 2: No word on Price Yet.
