Lenovo's Honeycomb-based ThinkPad Tablet spotted
Lenovo's ThinkPad Tablet wasn't among the biggest secrets in the industry, but seeing it in the hands of Jaison Patrocinio, head of the ThinkPad product line, makes it even less mysterious. The Honeycomb-powered ThinkPad Tablet looks much like the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer with its detachable keyboard featuring an optical trackpad and that's the main focus of the device. The connection between the two is expected to be through some form of a USB interface.
Except for that, the guts are pretty much like in every other tablet out there – a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip is responsible for the smooth Honeycomb performance on a 10.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. We have no further details on pricing and release dates, but if Lenovo nails this, the ThinkPad might be a worthy competitor to the Transformer.
