With the promising next version of Windows set to launch very soon, it was only a matter of time before we started to learn more news of tablets running Windows 10. One of the first companies to make available a Windows 10 tablet will be Lenovo, with an addition to its ThinkPad line of tablets penciled in for an August launch.
The ThinkPad 10, as it will be called, is intended more for corporate productivity than media consumption. For a price of $499 for the most basic model, purchasers of the ThinkPad 10 will be able to enjoy a X5 Z8500 or X7 Z8700 quad-core Intel Atom processor, 2GB or 4GB of RAM, and internal storage of 64GB or 128GB.
Other appealing specs include a USB 3.0 port, a micro-SD card slot and a 10.1-inch screen with a 1920×1080-pixel resolution. Meanwhile, the battery life can reach as much as 10 hours, making the tablet ideal for prolonged use in a corporate environment where access to a charging point could be limited.
What we have so far learnt about this new Lenovo tablet suggests that it will be very much a typical ThinkPad tablet that has been subtly improved and modified on the previous generation for running Windows 10. We can imagine the operating system in particular proving a significant draw for many when the ThinkPad 10 reaches the tablet market later this year.
