When it comes to laptops, many business customers swear by the ThinkPad series, which were formerly developed by IBM. Lenovo now produces the devices, including the new line of ThinkPad tablet PCs. The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet is designed specifically for companies that need extensive security features, including encryption of device and SD card data, deactivation in case of loss or theft, and theft deterrent software.
Like most other business tablets, Lenovo’s device includes a WiFi/3G module. It weighs just over a pound and can be purchased with 16, 32, or 64GB of internal storage. Starting from May 2012, it will be possible to upgrade the tablet to Google’s new operating system, Android 4.0.
Meanwhile, if you’re all thumbs on touchscreens, you might find the tablet’s stylus more to your liking. Its 10.1-inch display reproduces images at a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, and the device also comes equipped with front- and rear-facing HD webcams.
The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet offers a variety of connection options, including HDMI output, a USB port, and a MicroUSB interface. Through Bluetooth, it’s possible to connect the tablet to other devices in the vicinity.
