With the Microsoft Surface taking much of the attention with upcoming Windows 8 tablets, the competition looks to be on its way with Lenovo leading the charge
The first Windows 8 tablet from Lenovo has leaked online with Lenovo Windows 8 ThinkPad Tablet 2 specs and images surfacing ahead of what could be an October 26th release date.
The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 will not be running Windows 8 RT if the specs sheet is anything to go by, instead the tablet will be running a full version of Windows 8 SoC which means you'll be able to get all the same functionality as the desktop version.
Lenovo ThinkPad 2 specs:
The specs leak also reveals that the 10.1-inch tablet will be just 9.8mm thin and will run using Intel's Cloverview Dual-core processor with 2GB RAM and a 64GB Hard drive.
It looks to be media-friendly as well with the leak suggesting a large 720p display and stereo speakers. Of course it wouldn't be a Lenovo tablet without some business tech being added.
Lenovo ThinkPad 2 features:
There's a keyboard dock and stylus pen which will looks set to be releasing alongside the tablet, add to that a fingerprint scanner and NFC and you have a features-packed offering.
Apparently Lenovo is looking to target not only the New iPad but also the Microsoft Surface as well suggesting that its combination of small size and the ability to run the full version of Windows 8 will make it a winning combination.
