Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet Review and Price
Tablets are gradually expanding their domain in the tech market and they have already started including the mainstream consumers in their demand schedule. However, they will have to bridge huge gaps in order to prove themselves as worthy substitutes for laptops.
It is the reliability and quality performance of the all new Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet, targeted towards the business users, that has led to its success in the corporate world. Apart from the tablet, the keyboard folio accessories and the stylus are also the talking points, but they will include an additional charge of $140. Though the tablet boasts of good design and features, but there can be frustrating unresponsiveness or application crashes holding the device back.
Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet Design
People who are fond of classy tablets are definitely going to like this one. Just like the laptops, this tablet also misses the sleekness and style factor of its rivals. Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet has dimensions of 10.2 x 7.3 x 0.6 inches and weighs around 1.6 pounds. Though the weight of the device is almost similar to the iPad 2, but it is quite chunkier and is about double the thickness of the latter product.
The black rear panel of the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet is fully rubberized for better gripping. The physical controls include Browser, Orientation Lock, Home and Back buttons located at the bottom of the screen while the power button and the volume rocker are located on the top right corner. Though the buttons seem quite out of date as compared to other tablets equipped with virtual navigation buttons, but they are far safer from accidental presses than these capacitive controls.
Below the navigation buttons, you will get the micro USB port, 3.5 mm audio jack, mini HDMI port and a connector for the dock. Just beside these ports, there lies a SIM card slot and a media card reader. The card reader is for memory expansion and it is capable of supporting MMC, SD or SDHC cards.
Apart from the 2 MP front facing and the 5 MP rear camera, you will get Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n as wireless connectivity options. The 10.1 inch glossy IPS display panel of the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and has a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels.
Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet Performance
The Android 3.1 in Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet is recognizable and instead of heavy skinning, the company has emphasized on adding preloaded applications. Leaving aside the notification zone, you will observe minor tweaking in standard icons for Android – Home, Back and Task Manager. In order to access the favourite apps instantly, the device is embedded with an App Wheel at the centre of the home row.
The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet runs on dual core Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1 GHz and 1 GB RAM. Freezing up or crashing of applications and system lock-ups are quite common in this tablet. The rear camera is capable of recording 720p videos at 30 fps, but inferior picture quality with delayed sound is observed while video chatting.
Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet Price
The 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB of Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet are priced at $500, $570 and $670 respectively.
