Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 Confirmed to Hit the Market in October

It was fathomed to be coming to the market soon but the timing was not in the day light, now the Lenovo ThinkPad 2 has an official release date set in the month of October. The Chinese conglomerate has officially announced on Wednesday that the Windows 8 tablet will be floating in the market from the next month.

"Today we are excited to reveal the fruit of this collaborative co-engineering, the ThinkPad Tablet 2, a joint effort between Lenovo, Microsoft and Intel," Dilip Bhatia, vice president and general manager, ThinkPad Business Unit, said in a press release.  

One thing here needs to be emphasized that this tablet is not an RT model, it will be powered by Intel Atom chip. To make things look pretty, the weight of the machine has been kept shockingly low at 1.3 pounds and the 9.8mm thick(or thin).

Technical Specification
UK’s most popular tech site, ThechRadar revealed the pictures of the said device; the pictures are now verified by Lenovo itself.  The manufacturers say that the device will come in both the 3g and 4G versions. It will sport both front and rear facing camera. The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 will house a 10.1 inch HD screen, HDMI port, wireless video streaming capability, and a finger print reader. There will also be a stylus pen.

Moving on, the manufacturers are saying that the tablet will hit the retail shelves just as the Windows 8 is launched; Microsoft has made it clear that the date for the Windows 8 inauguration is 26 October. The same day is going to witness the launch of the first ever Microsoft tablet, the Surface tablet. Lenovo has not exactly pin pointed the real date but one gets the sense of déjà vu.  And about the future of the Lenovo ThinkPad 2, only time will tell.
