Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet Think Slate

In October of last year, we heard a Lenovo executive say that the company had no plans to enter the Android tablet game in the U.S. until Honeycomb was made available. Well, as I'm sure you all know, Honeycomb is here, and according to some leaked slides sent over to This is my next, a Lenovo-made slate will be landing later this year. Named either the ThinkPad Tablet or the Think Slate (both are used in the slides), the device will allegedly be powered by a Tegra 2 processor and feature a 10.1-inch 1280x800 IPS display, 16, 32, or 64GB of storage, front and rear cameras, an array of ports (USB 2.0, micro USB, mini-HDMI, SD card slot, a "keyboard booklet" that looks like a ThinkPad laptop but without the display, an optional "True Pen" add-on for takings notes, and WiFi and/or 3G and 4G connectivity. You'll also find Android 3.0 running the show, although Lenovo will be placing its "Lenovo Family UI" skin on top of the OS. So when can we expect Lenovo's slate to make its grand debut? There are mentions of both July and August in the docs as well as a $499 price point, which is likely for the base 16GB model.

Although Lenovo is prepping to enter an Android tablet market that seems to be growing larger by the day, their slate looks like it could be a pretty good option for folks interested in a business-ready tablet or anyone that swears by the company's ThinkPad line of laptops. We should be learning more about the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet/Think Slate in the coming months, but in the mean time, don't be afraid to drop your opinions of the device in the comments below.
