ThinkPad Tablet 2Someone is leaking photos and specs of Lenovo's upcoming ThinkPad Tablet 2 to tech blogs. Both The Verge and Australia's Techin5, for instance, recently posted internal Lenovo documents that detail the manufacturer's upcoming Windows 8 slate.
Like Microsoft's Surface for Windows 8 Professional, the ThinkPad Tablet 2 is clearly aimed at the enterprise. Featuring an Intel Clover Trail dual-core Atom chip, a 10.1-inch IPS display with 1,366-by-768 resolution, an 8-MP rear camera, and a 2-MP front camera, the new ThinkPad is a full-fledged PC. It's 9.8-mm thick--slightly fatter than the iPad.
Other business-friendly features include a dock with a keyboard, near-field communications (NFC) capability, a fingerprint reader, pen input, and optional LTE/HSPA+ broadband. Pricing is unknown at this point, but Lenovo's recent FCC filings suggest the ThinkPad Tablet 2 might be ready in time for Windows 8's Oct. 26 launch.
