Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet review


Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet is a solidly built tablet. It offers few additional buttons on one of the shorter sides. Honeycomb OS is a buttonless OS. The extra buttons we see are for home, back, browser and screen orientation. I am not really sure why this is an advantage of any kind. Perhaps you can let me know in the comments.

Size and weight:

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet has a 10 inch IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass and 1280 x 800 screen resolution. It is 1.58 pound light and measures 10.3″ x 7.2″ x 0.6″. This makes it a bit lighter and smaller than its base IdeaPad K1. Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet goes on sale today July 20th for all US. It is expected to sell for $499. The rest of the world has this one scheduled for Q3.
