Lenovo Launches Its Enterprise-grade ThinkPad Tablet Powered by Android

Not sure which Android-based tablet to buy? Have a look at Lenovo’s new ThinkPad Tablet — it’s got a little something for everyone. The $499/16GB ThinkPad Tablet has been designed with the enterprise market in mind, but it offers a bevy of features that any hardcore geek will appreciate. Below are some of the product highlights.

  • NVIDIA® Tegra™ 2 Dual-Core 1GHz processor
  • 10.1-inch WXGA (1280×800) 16:10 IPS panel with Corning Gorilla Glass
  • Multitouch display with digitizer input (pen optional)
  • Starts at 1.65 lbs, with up to 8 hours of battery life (with WiFi enabled) and up to 64GB storage
  • Android 3.1 Honeycomb
  • Corporate email and security features like network passwords for safe communication inside and outside your network
  • Protect all of your confidential data with robust security features, including full device and SD card encryption, lost device disablement and anti-theft software
  • HD display and HDMI output for crisp and defined presentations on large monitors
  • Supports Adobe Flash
  • Native USB 2.0 and micro-USB ports
  • Integrated cloud sharing and storage to easily move large files between team members and offices

To put it in perspective, the ThinkPad Tablet bests the iPad 2 in display resolution, memory (1GB), camera megapixels (2.0 front, 5.0 rear), ports (HDMI, USB 2.0, micro-USB), and graphics (NVIDIA Tegra 2). However, the ThinkPad Tablet’s battery lasts only 8 hours compared to the iPad’s 10. It’s also .32 lbs heavier and slightly thicker than the iPad (mainly due to the larger 16:10 screen and included ports). With all that said, though, the ThinkPad Tablet is the obvious choice for anyone looking for the best equipped Android tablet. The lightest 10.1-inch Android tablet award still goes to the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 at 1.25 lbs.
