In August, Lenovo announced plans to launch the Windows 8-based ThinkPad Tablet 2. The PC maker didn't reveal a price point for the 10 inch tablet but today a website claims to have learned how much this device will cost.
WPCentral.com says they got some hands-on time with the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 during this week's PepCom tech event in New York City. The report claims that when they asked the Lenovo representative the price of the tablet, the rep replied it would be $799.
The report added that price includes the physical keyboard that will go with the ThinkPad Tablet 2, along with a copy of Office 2013. However, it apparently does not include an optional dock that will add an Ethernet port, three USB ports and an HDMI port.
It's important to state that this information has yet to be confirmed by Lenovo, but if it is true it would seem to be consistent with the pricing that's already been leaked for Acer-based Windows 8 devices.
Just a reminder: the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 will have Windows 8 Pro installed and have Intel's Clover Trail processor inside. It will have a 1,366x768 HD IPS display, an optional 3G/4G wireless antenna, NFC hardware, a MicroHDMI port, and a stylus. There's no word on the storage or memory specs yet.
