We told you about the new Lenovo ThinkPad 10 (2015) only a few days ago, when he got the first certificate by the engineers of the FCC, but now it is official. The Chinese company submitted it to the Tech World of Beijing as the first tablet to be sold with pre-installed Windows 10, but the qualities of the ThinkPad 10 second generation are very different.
How many devices ThinkPad, the new ThinkPad 10 is aimed at business customers but will still be available for anyone from a “nice nest egg” and demand a bit more than you average consumer. We can be called Surface 3, especially in the technical specifications, and will be available by the summer (and certainly for August-September) at a price of $ 549. We have not information on price and availability in Europe (and in Italy), but we can expect a similar figure (EUR 550?), Although everything will depend on the SKU that Lenovo decides to propose on our market.
As its name suggests, Lenovo ThinkPad 10 comes with a 10.1-inch Full HD (1920 x 1200 pixels, 16:10) and Intel Cherry Trail to 14nm, a choice between an Atom Z8500-x5 or a quad-core x7-Atom Z8700 (the latter also available for Surface 3), with 2GB or 4GB of RAM and 64GB LPDDR3 or 128GB of internal memory eMMC.
The 32Wh battery should provide a range of 10 hours and at the back is a 5 megapixel camera, which is paired with a 1.2-megapixel front sensor (perhaps a bit ‘disappointing, but sufficient for Skype). On board there is a USB 3.0 port, a micro HDMI, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and 3G modem (and optional 4G / LTE). Among the features business-oriented, we point out the TPM for data encryption, a smart card reader or a fingerprint, and a matte anti-glare panel (on request).
ThinkPad 10 will be accompanied by a wide range of accessories including two keyboards, docking and a stylus. In particular, the ThinkPad Keyboard Folio 10 is a keyboard cover that costs $ 110, but for $ 119 you can win a 10 Ultrabook ThinkPad Keyboard, which provides a trackpad in addition to the keyboard. It ‘also a dock, priced at $ 129, and the curious QuickShot Cover to $ 45, which turns the camera simply by bending a corner. The stylus that called Lenovo ThinkPad Pen Pro costs about $ 40 and is a common digital pen with some features made-in-Lenovo, as WriteIt that allow you to write directly freehand even in text fields and to transform their own writing in text digital.
