Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 1839 ( Honeycomb)


Apparently, the whole world's gone crazy for tablets (or, at least one of them ). A tablet makes the perfect ultraportable companion for browsing the Web, checking e-mail, and watching movies on the go. But if tablets represent the future of portable...

The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet (upgradeable to Android 4.0) has several business-oriented features that should bring a smile to the IT crowd, along with digital pen support and a beautiful screen.

The tablet is relatively thick and heavy, with unnecessary navigation buttons and uninspired Android interface optimizations.

If your IT department could design a tablet, the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet would be it.

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet


Lenovo, which released its IdeaPad K1 tablet just a month ago, is already back to the table with the oh-so-sexily-named ThinkPad Tablet.

Top-notch performance in all areas. USB charging. Outstanding battery life (over 9 hours at full tilt). Preinstalled IT apps make sense for enterprise buyers, but they aren’t packaged here very thoughtfully

Major problems with wireless networking. Display seems dim if not viewed dead-on. Expensive. Design simply not up to snuff compared to Lenovo’s other products, especially ThinkPad laptops

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet review


Lenovo adds ThinkPad X1 to laptop comparison guide, outs IPS screen, USB 3.0, and optional SSDTurkish company builds 65-inch Android 'tablet' with

Full-sized USB port and SD slot, 1080p output ; Offers remote control features for IT managers ; Accepts pen input -- a rarity for Android tablets

Bulky design, display isn't always responsive ; Sluggish performance, long boot time ; Handwriting recognition software isn't very precise

The ThinkPad Tablet's pen input, port selection and security features don't quite make up for its poky performance and not-so-responsive display.

Waterfield Ultimate SleeveCase for Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet Review


Looking for that perfect case for your new Thinkpad Lenovo Tablet? It's not easy. As a new and “business grade” product, the amount of cases in production out there are very far and few between. Searches in local shops and online lead me to so many...

Made in the USA ; Durable Ballistic Nylon construction ; Water resistant ; Snug fit ; Great protection on all sides ; Professional and good looking (IMHO)

A bit expensive, but then you are getting a quality product for the price ; Smells a bit "neopreney" when new, but that disappears after a while ; Does add some bulk (but you need that for the protection) ; Velcro closure might not be to some people's...

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet Review


I tested the rear-facing camera on the ThinkPad under the same conditions that I did with the Acer and received about the same results. Simply put, tablet cameras aren't very good; none of them. You'd have similar or better luck with a basic smartphone...

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet


Pen for note-taking, solid build, USB port, excellent optional keyboard folio

Chunky, would be better without bloatware (bloatware is reduced with ICS upgrade)

Like the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 , we had great hopes for the ThinkPad Android Tablet. Lenovo makes excellent laptops, and it's hard to beat ThinkPads for durability, IPS display options, ultraportable designs and excellent keyboards. That signature ThinkPad...

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet


Lenovo's ThinkPad Tablet comes with a digitiser pen and plenty of features designed to appeal to corporate users

Included digitiser pen ; Physical shortcut buttons ; Unique business-orientated software

Chunky design and glossy display ; Battery life could be improved ; Visible square imprints on screen

Unlike every other Android tablet on the market, the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet is a business tablet first and foremost. Its digitiser pen alone makes it an attractive proposition, and it also comes with useful security features and VPN capability. All up,...
