The battle for world domination in the tablet computing segment is really heating up and major tablet-makers are hard at work trying to not only outdo each other in terms of features but also in churning out newer and fresher versions of their best-selling units. Lenovo may not exactly have the big sales numbers as Samsung, Apple and Amazon have but the Chinese electronics giant is slowly but surely carving out a niche for itself in the market with a tablet aimed squarely at business users. The new ThinkPad 2 would come bearing the soon-to-be-launched Microsoft Windows 8 operating system and will come laced with the full MS Office 2013 suite.
The high end tablet comes with primary and secondary cameras, an HD display fronted by a 10.1 inch screen, NFC, an Intel Atom processor and the ability to stream video wirelessly. Lenovo has earlier stated in a press release that the new tablet’s battery is good enough to offer continuous playtime of over 10 hours which could make it very popular with business users. The company has also stated that a physical keyboard will come bundled with the tablet though it has not yet specified that the optional dock that features an Ethernet port, three USB ports and an HDMI out port would also be offered as a part of the bundle or not. A Pro variant of the tablet is also in the offing though there is no word on its pricing just yet. The Lenovo ThinkPad 2 hits stores on October 26 and will be priced starting at a mammoth $799.
