Description

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2, which is none other than a slate running the full Windows 8 experience – as opposed to the watered down Windows RT experience. For a tablet, we have to admit, we’re digging the slim size it’s packing along for the ride – while also admiring the subtle ThinkPad design DNA it’s boasting too. Digging the size and balanced weight of this one, you can turn it into a distinctive ThinkPad laptop by attaching the optional keyboard dock to it. Strengthening its overall usability, it even manages to carry along a very useful digitizer stylus that presents users with a way to quickly jot down notes or draw – similar to what we’ve been seeing with Sammy’s Note stuff. Smack dab right there in front of us, its 10.1-inch HD 1366 x 768 IPS screen with 10-finger multi-touch support looks pretty superb when pitted up against other things. On top of that, if you’re worried about battery life with this skinny looking fellow, it’s mentioned to put out roughly 10 hours out of juice. However, if you pick up the optional keyboard dock, it’ll increase the total by a little bit more. Being Windows 8 and all with its fancy schmancy start screen, it naturally moves swimmingly with its performance – and that’s know it’s packing a 1.5GHz Intel Atom processor with 2GB of RAM inside of its streamlined body.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
