The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet is the company's effort to produce an Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablet that is geared towards the business user, while still providing features that consumers will appreciate. By and large, it is a typical, 10.1-inch Honeycomb tablet, with a 1280 x 800 pixel display, and dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. Build quality lives up to the ThinkPad name for the most part, and the ThinkPad Tablet certainly feels solid in your hands. A slew of full-size ports grace the device, and Lenovo also has a stylus with an active digitizer for pen input. The stylus is a neat concept, and might work for some users, but it likely won't appeal to most. Unfortunately, despite running what Lenovo says is final software, the ThinkPad Tablet that we got to play with was rather sluggish and buggy, and seemed to be slowed down by Lenovo's custom widgets and interface. The ThinkPad Tablet can be ordered now from Lenovo with prices starting at $499 for the 16GB version.
