Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet

Lenovo on has announced that it will be releasing a ThinkPad Tablet, geared for  businesses, which runs on Google's Android 3.1.

The tablet has the specifications of your typical Google Honecomb tablet with 10.1-inch (1280 x 800) screen, Nvidia's Tegra 2 processor and 16GB of internal storage. It will have about provides eight hours of battery life. The ThinkPad Tablet has a 2.0-megapixel camera in front and 5.0-megapixel camera at the back. For connectivity, the tablets has a mini-HDMI, a full sized USB and mini USB slots, and SIM card ports and an SD card reader. It weighs 1.65 pounds.

The tablet is expected to be available by next month, although I do not know when it will be available in the Philippines. The price for the 16GB Wi-Fi model is priced at US$499, same price as the iPad 2.

What makes it interesting is that for an additional $30 users can buy a model with a digitizer pen. Add another US$99 and you can get a keyboad dock for it like the Asus Eee Pad Transformer.

Who knows, a tablet might replace my laptop after all.
