Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 1839 ( Honeycomb)


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.

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.

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.

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 review


Stocky tablet hints at ThinkPad laptops, but doesn't rival Samsung

Good battery life ; Extra business apps ; Extra ports - USB and SD ; Fits with Lenovo laptops ; Pen input

Bulky and not that thin ; Outdated design ; Poor AVI video playback ; UI adds-on are so-so ; Lenovo store is confusing

Our final conclusion is that this tablet is better than many other Android models, mostly because of the extra ports and the business apps, but the larger size and weight make it a runner-up to Apple and Samsung models.

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


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,...

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
