Lenovo has finally announced release of the next evolution of their lightweight Windows tablet line, and it’s called the Lenovo ThinkPad 10. On paper it looks like a natural Bay Trail replacement for the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 that I found so useful last year, but which feels pretty slow these days. The big deal about this new tablet is that it ships with a Wacom stylus and digitizer—finally a worthy tablet-sized Tablet PC may be out! It’s planned to ship next month starting at $599.
It sure took a while—Bay Trail was October 2013 news—so this tablet feels like it is 6 months late! But perhaps it’s worth the wait, because the other big news is that it has the option to run 64-bit Windows, which means you are not limited to 2GB of RAM. And it reportedly has 128 GB of storage.
It seems to be targeted toward business users, with lots of docking station and keyboard options.
