Lenovo ThinkPad 8 unveiled, Lenovo’s latest Windows 8.1 tablet!

Lenovo just unveiled their latest Windows 8.1 tablet offering that can easily go head-to-head with the first generation iPad mini and is also a great competitor of the new iPad mini with retina display–the Lenovo ThinkPad 8.

Packing an impressive 8.3 inch ( 1920 x 1200 pixels ) Full HD display which translates to a 273 ppi resolution, the new Lenovo ThinkPad 8 tablet also features a powerful 2.4GHz quad core Intel Atom processor with 2 GB of RAM, 32, 64 or 128 GB built-in storage options, an 8 megapixel back camera and a 2.2 megapixel front camera and optional LTE powered by the latest Windows 8.1, all housed in a 8.8mm thick body and weighs just 0.92 lbs.

The ThinkPad 8 also features a micro HDMI port that lets you connect the tablet to an external monitor, and a micro USB port for additional and optional accessories. The lack of inclusion of a stylus and a microSD expansion slot might be a deal breaker for a Windows 8.1 tablet like the ThinkPad 8, but Lenovo decided to make up for it in a different, but some sort of a familiar way. An optional accessory called the “QuickShot” is a nice option for this tablet. Similar to Apple’s SmartCover, the QuickShot magnetically attaches to the side of the ThinkPad 8, protecting the screen as well as acting as a stand. Also, the QuickShot cover wakes the device when peeled back, again, similar to Apple’s SmartCover. Alternatively, you can launch the camera app just by folding a corner exposing the 8 megapixel camera.

Pricing starts at $399 and is expected to hit the shelves later this month. [via]
