Undoubtedly, Microsoft has jumped into the Tablet segment and has decided to launch its first Tablet in October of this year. It was speculated that Microsoft’s decision (to launch the Tablet) could create a strife with its hardware partners, but this time, it seems unethical. Lenovo has finally announced to launch its first Windows 8 powered Tablet when Microsoft will launch Windows 8 in October of this year.

Specifications of Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2

Lenovo has designed the Tablet for the multi-use. The Tablet encompasses an optional ‘digitizer and pen’ (for precision input) and 3G wireless with Lenovo mobile access pay-as-you-go plans; it will also be available in 4G models. The company has targeted to security features and that’s why, it incorporated Fingerprint Reader, IT manageability technologies, corporate level services and support into its upcoming Tablet.  Lenovo is trying to bridge personal and professional platforms purposes through its Think Pad Tablet 2. The Tablet will be powered by Intel Atom Processor and Windows 8 Pro OS. The Tablet is quite slim measuring 9.8 mm thin and weighing less than 600 grams (1.3 pounds). Besides, the screen-size of the Tablets has been kept 10.1-inches. In addition to these, the Tablet supports multi inputs methods such as multi-finger touch and ‘optional digitizer and pen’ (for note taking, completing form and capturing signature).

Lenovo Has Not Explained About Price And Resolution Of Screen

However, Lenovo has not yet declared the price of the Tablet. The Tablet will be available with 3G and 4G connectivity models, expecting to fulfill both business and entertainment tasks. That’s why; the Tablet is equipped with HD display, front and rear camera for video conferencing and uploading photos, HDMI port, noise cancelling microphone and wireless video streaming. However, the company has also not explained about the resolution of screen and cameras. It’s important because at present every manufacturers are focusing on screen resolution of their Tablet.

Challenges For The Tablet

I have already described number of times about the importance of price for the shipments of Tablet. Users are still reluctant to use cellular Tablet due to higher price reason. Just few days before, I explained how the price of ‘Surface Tablet’ could be fatal for Microsoft. I’m little bit skeptic about the price tag of Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 as well. Here, Lenovo is targeting to both businesses and normal users. But I think, Microsoft is itself a big hurdle for Lenovo to entice businesses and professional. If somehow we accept that Lenovo and Microsoft succeed to find a intermediate solution, but what should we about Apple and other vendors.

Indeed, it’s very tough for Lenovo to clinch market share of Apple in the business segment. For some instances, I suppose that Lenovo would subsidize its Tablet for end users, then still, it’s difficult for it to lure a significant number of users. In low-price Tablet segment, Google Nexus 7 Tablet will be one of the strongest competitors for Lenovo’s ThinkPad Tablet 2.

In addition to these, Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 has 10-inch screen size. At present, users are more likely to get their hand on portable 7-inch Tablet. However, 10-inch Tablet could lure businesses and professionals (or those who want to own the Tablet for online book reading), but not to those who are seeking the Tablets for some other purposes.
