Lenovo outs new Windows 8.1 ThinkPad 10 tablet on Australian site

Lenovo has been busy recently with launches of small Windows 8.1 tablets, such as the Miix 2 8 and the ThinkPad 8, but now it looks like the company is going to offer a larger tablet with Microsoft's latest PC operating system. The tablet, the ThinkPad 10, was outed this weekend on Lenovo's Australian website but was quickly removed.

However, TabTech managed to grab the information and images from the site before it was taken down. Based on their report, the Lenovo ThinkPad 10 will have a 10.1 inch IPS display with a 1920x1200 resolution. Inside there will be an 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z3795 quad-core processor, support for either 2 or 4GB of RAM and SSD storage options of 64 and 128GB. 

One interesting thing is that while the first version of the ThinkPad 10 will have the 32-bit version of Windows 8.1, Lenovo will release future versions that will have the 64-bit version of the OS. Other hardware features include a eight megapixel rear camera and a two megapixel front facing camera. The battery is supposed to last up to 10 hours. Like the ThinkPad 8, the ThinkPad 10 will support its own QuickShot Cover that will allow users to quickly peel off part of the covering to expose the tablet's rear camera.

Unfortunately, we don't don't know the price or a release date for the ThinkPad 10 but if it was leaked on one of the company's official websites, we suspect it won't be long before it's available to purchase.

There is a lack of decent Windows Tablets in the market especially something with the keyboard. So far Microsoft Surface devices are the only decent tablets in the market. Some may talk about Dell Venue 8, Lenovo ThinkPad 8 and devices from HP but all lack decent keyboard accessories. Unfortunately it seems only 10"+ Windows Tablets come with keyboard accessories.

I'm looking forward for Surface Mini but Windows RT will be a disappointment with lack of apps in the AppStore. I don't understand why MS doesn't give up on the platform. They are the only ones who are pushing it and the merger between RT and WP8 isn't happening in near future. The scene for RT doesn't get better and now that MS Office is available in competing platforms, there is no appeal or value in picking RT Tablets.

You may not, I do. Looking forward to an RT-based Surface Mini.

Agreed! - both my Thinkpads have 1920 x 1200. Never understood why this went out of favour and was succeeded by 1920 x 1080. Less pixels, why? Nobody uses a laptop/tablet exclusively for video. Even when playing video, the extra 120 pixel rows is useful for menu bars etc.

Rear camera is kind-of annoying and mostly useless on tablets... Decent front camera for video calling is all that's needed IMO. MAYBE a back shooter of similar specs, 8Mp is kind-of overdoing it a bit.

I see people holding up their full-size tablets to take pictures occasionally, it looks hilariously awkward and silly.

Glad to hear Lenovo finally doing a Win8 tablet with a 64-bit CPU... I've found Win8 32-bit OS seems to be a lot more cludgy and less reliable than 64-bit. It seems like Microsoft is not supporting it so well as it does 64-bit. Which in a way is somewhat reasonable - 32-bit should be going the way of 16-bit IMO.

I agree about photos.

But I see people shoot video at dance competitions on their iPads... and then they can play it back right there on the big screen.

That's one good use for video on a tablet (probably the only one)

:)

I think taking picture with iPad isn't awkward but a new way of capturing or recording precious moment of life that are far better than mobile phone due to tiny screen size that unable to display full pixel per pixel in much better detail compared to larger screen. If they keep on improving the camera to a level of DSLR then you might not be complaining anymore.

As someone who is shopping for a Win 8 tab for work applications, I want a decent rear facing camera. The ability to take a photo of something at work, load it into OneNote to annotate, and then email it to a co-worker to "take care of" would be a huge productivity booster for me.
