Lenovo ThinkPad tablet will be available on August 23, starting at $479
Lenovo announced two different Android-powered tablets a few days ago. The company targets the IdeaPad K1 at ‘consumers’, and the ThinkPad more at businesses and professionals. We heard that the latter would become available in the US on August 2, however that has changed. A small delay is what’s going on here, though nothing to get too upset with.
Lenovo now claims that the ThinkPad tablet will ship on August 23. The starting price is $479, which you can pay to get a 16 GB tablet sans the digitizer pen. If you want the pen, the same 16 GB tablet will cost you $509. If you want to get a ThinkPad model with 32 GB of internal storage space, that will be $589, digitizer pen included. An optional keyboard portfolio case is also going to be sold for $99.
The aforementioned tablet models are all Wi-Fi-only. 3G-enabled versions will be launched at a later date.
After going on sale in the US, the ThinkPad tablet will also make its way across the world before the end of September.
The Lenovo ThinkPad tablet comes with a 10.1-inch 1280×800 capacitive touchscreen with Gorilla Glass, a dual-core 1 GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, mini HDMI. For more information about the ThinkPad tablet, head over here to Lenovo’s dedicated website.
