Engadget offers details of Lenovo's upcoming ThinkPad tablet 2, an upcoming Windows 8 tablet with a 10" 1366 x 768 IPS screen, HSPA+, NFC, optional 3G/4G, 10-hour battery life, micro-HDMI output, 2MP and 8MP cameras, and a fingerprint reader. It will start shipping in October.
And here it is! As we previously reported, this is a 10-inch slate running Windows 8 and an Intel Atom processor. And yes, it will replace the current ThinkPad Tablet, which runs Android. Other key specs include a 1,366 x 768 IPS display, a 10-hour battery, optional 3G / 4G, micro-HDMI output and a pair of 2MP / 8MP cameras. For the most part, that cellular connection will take the form of HSPA+ but in the US, at least, the tablet will be available on AT&T's LTE network. And, as we learned in more recent leaks, this 9.8mm-thick tablet makes room for an NFC radio, along with a fingerprint reader and a pen, which can be stowed in a slot on the tablet. Additionally, it will be sold alongside an optional keyboard, as well as a dock with three USB ports, HDMI-out and an Ethernet jack.
