Lenovo Making a Thinkpad Android Tegra 2 Tablet

Lenovo is moving its Thinkpad brand to the slate category, according to information obtained by This is My Next.

The Thinkpad tablet will be running Android 3.0, AKA Honeycomb, and will be powered by the dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset. Like the Motorola Xoom, this set up is becoming the standard for the modern Android-powered tablets.

It will have a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 IPS LCD which will also have stylus input for sketching and note-taking. It will be a bit on the hefty side at 1.6-lbs and 0.55-inches thick.

The Lenovo slate will also have the ability to dock into a laptop-like shell for a full keyboard experience. From the slides, however, it doesn't look like the dock attachment will have the trademark red pointing stick that all the other Thinkpads have.

With a launch date and price already put in a slide, it shouldn’t be too long before we hear official word about this.

    Not so amazing that seemingly every computer manufacturer is releasing a tablet.

    I keep asking myself...how much are they making on a tablet - I know that computers themselves are considered relatively low margin.
