Lenovo's new ThinkPad X1 Tablet outed: Surface Pro rival due Feb. 2016

The market for pro-level tablets is growing steadily, with Microsoft, Apple, Samsung and many others having all delved into this category. A leaked Lenovo road map suggests the firm has a new model up its sleeve in the form of the ThinkPad X1 Tablet. Due in February of next year, details are scant at this stage, but judging by the image of the device, it will surely be looking to rival the new Microsoft Surface Pro 4

First shared by the folks at WinFuture, the ThinkPad X1 Tablet (top right) will include a 12-inch display and is touted as an 'Enterprise 2-in-1'. This, in layman's terms, is a slate that transforms into a notebook à la the Surface, while also offering a capable technical underbelly to suit the requirements of business users. 

The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is a real powerhouse, with the 3000 x 2000 display over the 12.3-inch canvas being one of the more eye-catching aspects we noticed in our hands-on time with Redmond's latest slab. From what we can gather of WinFuture's coverage, Lenovo's competitor will also offer a 3:2 aspect ratio, but it's difficult to get too excited until we know of the key tech. specs.

Hopefully those rather important details will follow this leak, along with pricing and availability. We'll let you know just as soon as they do, so stay tuned!
