Upcoming Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet - Looks Practical!

Gear: Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet, Slate Tablets.

There are some really good things about this "business" oriented tablet including:
  • 10.1 inch 1280x800 resolution IPS display - Portable, and looks good.
  • Touch and Pen Input (via N-Trig) - You can use your fingers for most programs and the pen for a few dedicated apps. It's also offers a slot to store your pen.
  • Full size USB port - Maybe we can hook up a Logitech mouse, or a backup hard drive
  • SD Card reader - This should make people happy because it will allow easy transfer of data/files between devices (like images in a high quality camera).
  • $500 for 16GB system - Seems reasonable
  • Keyboard Accessory/Case - Looks roomy, has a pointer, and attaches/detaches.

My concerns:

The pen input features looks good. You can use the pen to write notes, and they can be converted to PC readable text.

There will be proprietary software that should differentiate this system even more from all of those lame Android tablets. Hopefully Lenovo gets it right.

Most tablets out there are for media consumption and this one should be a bit more business oriented.
