Well the cat is out of the bag.  Above and below we have our first official pictures and specs of the ThinkPad Tablet 2.  No longer an Android machine, Lenovo has decided to seize an opportunity aboard the Windows 8 bandwagon and has outfitted the next generation ThinkPad Tablet with all the artillery to fight off an iPad invasion in the workplace.  Now we caught a glimpse of a Windows 8 ThinkPad tablet a couple of months ago at Computex but at the time it was unclear if this would be the ThinkPad Tablet 2 or perhaps another simultaneous line.  It appears from the naming convention that Lenovo has decided to get off the Android tablet track, at least for now, when it comes to their ThinkPad professional line.  The company does still of course make a full line of 'IdeaTab' and 'IdeaPad' tablets that run the Android OS.


So what's in the new tablet?  Well how about a full version of Windows 8 Professional, 10.1 inch IPS 1366 x 768 resolution display anti-glare display with 10 point multi-touch, optional digitizer and pen, stereo speakers, front 2mp camera and rear 8mp camera with flash, stereo microphones, mini HDMI, MicroSD slot, USB 2.0, 3.5mm audio out, docking connector and more all wrapped up in a 9.8mm thin, 650g package.  One thing of interest is the 'optional' put next to the digitizer and pen.  We're inclined to believe this just means the pen is an optional purchase and that like the original ThinkPad Tablet the digitizer is built in. 


A full line of accessories is also of course coming out with the ThinkPad Tablet 2 including the keyboard dock that can be seen below with full ThinkPad keyboard and eraser pointer and a fingerprint scanner in the back.  We're sure to see more accessories and covers on introduction.   The company has even printed up a side by side comparison with the iPad to show off the mostly superior specs of the ThinkPad Tablet 2.  While no official introduction date or price is mentioned we're told to expect the ThinkPad Tablet 2 in time for the October introduction of Windows 8. 

So what do you think of this development?  Are you upset that Lenovo has decided to go the Windows 8 route for the follow up to their ThinkPad Tablet?  Do you think the company will come out with a 2nd generation Android ThinkPad Tablet in time or will it depend on the success/failure of their Windows 8 tablet?  Let us hear your thoughts in the comments!

glad to hear their pulling out from android cause they have no idea what android is about and fail time and time again with their updates and lack of support to the dev community and false sells pitch I made sure I inquired first about their bootloader policy and was told it would come unlocked what a crock that was the choice to not give us a full system image or full source code about the only good thing I got to say about this tablet is the pen and the excellent battery life

as far as windows 8 is concerned looks to much like the health care system in the movie idiocracy they to late in the touch base system to make a splash about the only thing they gonna have going for them is Photoshop on a tablet

Holy crap if you told me the funniest thing I saw in a week would be on this forum I would call you a liar.  I just ROFLMFAOed myself and the stain will never come out of these pants. :P

on a side-note I totally agree with everything you said. I predict Lenovo will destroy what is left of Thinkpad reputation within next five years. once a company starts to justify unethical practices(such as refusing to recognize and extend warranty on faulty usb ports or never fixing GPS witch was clearly stated as a feature) they usually get progressively worse.

I hate to say it but Samsung will develop and support the tablet/stylus market leading the way for all others.  Lenovo will follow and imitate not innovate.
At least the dog still loves me

Still, on Nov.1 we have no pricing of the tablet & stylus .. what a shame !
+ would we be able of replacing the ssd unit, or put 4go of ram instead of 2 ( or 1 in the 32gb version ) ??
