ThinkPad Tablet Root, Hacks, Mods and Development / Re: More Efficient Way of Charging the Tablet on the Go« on: November 21, 2011, 08:43:23 PM »
Wow, good post! I wish had disposable income to be able to disassemble all my new toys...or the skills to reassemble them once they've been hacked
I'm waiting on the company I want to purchase from to get a new shipment of the battery charger boards. If this works, I'll post details.
ThinkPad Tablet Root, Hacks, Mods and Development / More Efficient Way of Charging the Tablet on the Go« on: November 20, 2011, 05:47:26 AM »
So I'm trying to design a portable charger for the tablet that can be used on the car/jet/bus, while traveling or anywhere that power isn't readily available. Basically, it's going to be a high mAh lipo battery that can be charged either thru USB, a DC wall wart or the attached solar panel, mounted in a convenient small case. When your battery in the TPT starts getting low, simply plug the TPT into the little battery pack and you're good to go.
While cruising the Lenovo site I came across the following specs for how long it takes to charge the TPT battery based on the charger used. I'm thinking if I up the charger output voltage and amperage to be closer to the 65W AC Adapter, it could dramatically lessen the charge time. Now obviously I won't be able to up the voltage coming from the battery or the solar panel, but plugged in with a wall wart shouldn't be a problem. Does that line of thought make sense or am I way off the mark and heading towards a fried TPT?

I can officially confirm that neither of these products fit the Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet...unfortunately. I have a Timbuk2 messenger bag that is now 8 years old and it's in just as good of shape, just a little dirtier, as it was on day one. I've written to Timbuk2 to let them know that our tablet doesn't fit either sleeve. Their website claims that it will fit the Envelope Sleeve, however no matter how hard I tried to make it fit, it wouldn't. Hopefully they'll fine tune the sleeve because it was really nice.

Also, a cool quick way to a command prompt in Windows 7 (maybe Vista too, but I don't have it to test it)...

These two posts make for an interesting read. My only question...what about a 4G modem?
ThinkPad Tablet Root, Hacks, Mods and Development / Day 1 - Pen Retention Mechanism Failure and a Fix« on: November 04, 2011, 01:59:08 PM »
Well, my first post where I'm providing the help...and I've only had my TPT for one day
I live in Orlando, FL. Tourism capital of the USA, possibly the world. When you live here though, that translates into something else...F%!cking Tourists That Once They Leave Their Home State Forget How To Drive Capital! I mean doesn't a stop sign mean stop in Wisconsin too?! But I digress.
On my way into work this AM, a tourist ignores a stop sign, forcing me to slam on my brakes and everything that was on my seat ended up on the floor. On the seat was my barely one day old TPT and a 17" laptop in a pelican case. As luck would have it, the TPT hits the deck first and the Pelican case slams corner first right into the corner of the screen where that the pen sits behind. The screen got scraped up and the case of the TPT separated maybe a millimeter. The screen cleaned up fine, the case snapped back together fine, but the pen wouldn't stay in the holder anymore (I knew this was going to happen as that securing mechanism was shoddy at best). After looking at it closely, I realized that one of the plastic clips inside where the pen sits broke or I'm just afraid to press on the screen hard enough to get it to latch again. After some quick MacGyvering, I came up with a solution...
That is a small piece of sticky back female velcro. After trial and error in it's placement, that is the best spot to put it. If you put it on the inside of the face or the inside of the back, it exerts too much pressure on the case and it starts to separate it. You don't need that large of a piece either as the slot isn't all that loose. Sorry the pic is so blurry. I can try later to get a better pic of it. If anyone needs any clarification, just post here or PM me.
If anyone comes up with a more elegant solution, I'm all ears. Good luck!
Hello TPT Forums!
My name is Jeremy and I am the proud owner of a brand new 32GB Thinkpad Tablet...with the PEN!
Of course I've been too busy today to even turn it on, but she's charging right now and we'll be spending a quiet evening together...I might even kiss and tell tomorrow
I'd also like to send a shout out to TPT Forum member TekMason for being super cool and helping me out testing an app with the pen before I ordered my tablet. Great first experience in a new forum!
I'm not a Dev, but I'm a pretty resourceful kinda guy and I hope I can help along the rooting of this device. I've had my Android phone for just about two years now and I've been experimenting with different ROMs well before "unRevoked" came along.
Nice to meet you all and I'll see you round like a donut!
Hello All! So I've been scouring this site for the last three hours and have learned a wealth of stuff about the Thinkpad Tablet. I have credit card in hand, but am a little apprehensive because of the lack of support for the pen.
Does anyone know if the pen works in AutoCAD WS? That would be one of the top 5 reasons I'm leaning towards the Thinkpad Tablet, is to be able to use the pen in the field to annotate and do minor updates to CADs. Anyone have any interest in testing it out for me...pretty please?
In all honesty, there really isn't another tablet I'm interested in...so this really isn't a deal breaker if it doesn't.
