The new Lenovo tablet with the latest Bay Trail architecture is on its way
Last week, we told you Lenovo was working on a new tablet, which would apparently be dubbed the ThinkPad 10. The slate can be considered the successor of the ThinkPad Tablet 2 and we had come to know of it via a leaked road-map.But a few days ago, we couldn't give you all the details about the product and we had no picture of the product to actually show you. Well, the guys over at TabTech have managed to get their hands on a few images detailing the device and have new information to share relating the upcoming slate.
Some of the pictures you will see in the gallery below are taken from a forum and they confirm that the tablet is far beyond experimental stage and is currently in its final phase, so it shouldn't be long now before we see it arrive in retail and be made available for purchase.
According to info we have so far, the 10.1-inch tablet will come with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution, so it basically has the same conformation as Sony’s latest flagship model, the Xperia Z2 Tablet.
Moving along, Lenovo will be slipping a new, powerful Intel Bay Trail Z3795 quad-core processor under the hood, combined with either 2GB or 4GB of RAM.
Now we have confirmation that the slate will also carry a USB 2.0 port, but not a USB 3.0 one like the ThinkPad 8. A Wacom digitizer built into the display will also be including, but the stylus will not come sunk in the housing, like with the ThinkPad Tablet 2.
Users of the upcoming Lenovo ThinkPad 10 will be able to charge the slate via its own special connector and power adapter. So, the charging time is supposedly significantly decreased, when compared to charging via USB cable.
The tablet will also come equipped with a micro HDMI port. There’s no confirmation about an additional keyboard dock, but the tablet will come with an optional Quickshot Cover.
The other images provided by the publication are from the FCC, another indication the product is nearing launch.
Anyway, the documents affiliated with the filing reveal the tablet will come with a SIM slot that supports memory expansion up to 128GB. In addition to that, there’s NFC and finger print scanner. The version spotted at the FCC is only a Wi-Fi one.
Of course, you can expect Windows 8.1 64-bit version to be the default operating onboard. Currently, there’s no information about how much the slate with cost customers, nor when Lenovo will make the official announcement about it, but our guess is soon.
