Surprise, surprise—another PC maker is readying an Android 3 tablet. This time, the company is Lenovo, and the product is a ThinkPad-branded device that apparently has much in common with Asus' Eee Pad Transformer. Ztop reports that Lenovo's Jaison Patrocinio publicly flashed the device in Brazil yesterday. If the Google translation is correct, we may see this puppy in the market in "three or four weeks."
According to Ztop, the ThinkPad tablet has a Tegra 2 processor, a 10.1" 1280x800 display, and a mobile dock with an attached keyboard and an optical, TrackPoint-like sensor. The dock reportedly works similarly to the Eee Pad Transformer's keyboard accessory. Ztop says Lenovo has implemented a fourth input device in addition to the touch screen, keyboard, and optical TrackPoint: a stylus.
Information about this tablet actually leaked out in April, and the specifications quoted by the "This is my next" blog at the time corroborate Ztop's details. Word back then was also that the device would come with 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of storage capacity; USB 2.0, micro USB, and HDMI ports; 3G or 4G connectivity options; and an enclosure measuring 0.55" in thickness. Leaked pictures suggest the keyboard dock has a clamshell design with a lid, unlike the Eee Transformer's dock, which simply snaps onto the tablet. (Thanks to Engadget for the link.)
