Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet Gets Unboxed
If you still aren't convinced that tablets and notebooks are facing convergence in the next couple of years, well here is more proof.
The guys from Phandroid.com, an Android enthusiast blog uncovered something that may interest some users who are tempted to buy a tablet but want something more full featured.
What we've got here are two unboxing videos featuring the Lenovo K1, a regular consumer tablet, and the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet, which is more targeted towards enterprise users.
The videos reveal quite a few juicy details about the mysterious 10.1-inch Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet.
Among the more noteworthy features the ThinkPad Tablet has is the stylus support, which not only allows handwriting but also handwriting recognition.
There is also a full sized USB port that introduces all sorts of usage versatility, which includes peripherals like keyboards and mice.
The USB port also acts as the link between the tablet and the leather folio keyboard.
Another feature which users have been requesting for a long time is a full-sized SD card slot.
This alone, we feel, is worth considering the ThinkPad Tablet as your next gadget.
Other features mentioned are software based, such as a Lenovo branded app store which basically just filters the Android Market Place for tablet friendly apps.
The dock and stylus which you see in the picture are optional accessories, but add much more functionality to the device.
As far as we can tell from the video, the vertical dock, stylus and keyboard dock are optional.
