Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet Review
17 April 2014
Summary: The ThinkPad Tablet could be the perfect addition to your office or home. It packs a powerful punch for both the professional on the go to those that work-from-home. Safely and securely download and store files, docs and pictures and take them wherever you go.
Pros: Business Minded:, Take A Look:, Designed To Impress:, Ready To Go:, The Stylus Is Back:, Instant Access:, Loaded Up:, Video Chat That Works:, Smart Charger:
Cons: Exterminator Wanted:, Heavy But Not Heaviest:, Clean Me:, Tablet or Laptop?:
Excerpt: Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet is a business-centric Android Honeycomb tablet with a 10.1-inch 1280x800 pixels touchscreen, HSPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, NVidia's 1GHz dual-core processor, 64GB of built-in storage, native USB 2.0 and micro-USB ports, full-size SD card slot and mini-HDMI output.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Summary: In this growingly crowded and saturated Android-based tablet market, we notice that things are getting rather… repetitive. See one tablet and you might‘ve seen it all. Touch one tablet and the rest should feel the same.
Pros: Thoughtful business apps, Good stylus support, Great battery life
Cons: Large and bulky, Performance hitches, occasionally
Conclusion: The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet boasts excellent accessories that can transform the tablet into an on-the-go business machine. But short battery life and some stability issues make it a questionable choice for casual and corporate users alike.
Pros: Full-sized USB 2.0 port. Optional 3G. Excellent, though optional, keyboard folio case and accurate stylus pen.
Cons: A bit chunky. Frequent app crashes in our tests. Occasionally unresponsive screen. Subpar battery life.
Summary: The ThinkPad Tablet combines a superior media and entertainment experience with the security, reliability and manageability features for which ThinkPad is known to create a true business-class tablet.
Pros: + Accurate stylus, + Enterprise-friendly, + Tough
Cons: - Heavy and bulky, - Poor camera, - Tablet, - Charger adapter, - MicroUSB Cable
Conclusion: This tablet is pretty decent and should be great for business users and professionals. While the stylus works for full navigation everywhere the user needs from swiping through homescreens and choosing apps and more.
Excerpt: We've come to know Lenovo as one of the premiere business notebook manufacturers over the past years. Having worked with several ThinkPads during my time at TechSpot, aside from a few small quirks, each unit left me looking forward to the next.
Excerpt: “The pen is mightier than the finger” -Ian 2011 (Apologies to Edward Bulwer-Lytton ) Let me start this article by saying that if you’re looking for a technical review of the new Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet then this is not the article for you.
Pros: Dual capactive and active pen input adds a new dimension to Android Tablets, Accurate digitiser, Fast digitiser ( in most applications )
Cons: Palm rejection not 100% in all programs, OCR still not 100%, Not many pen support applications, Note that these are functions more of the software than the hardware.
Conclusion: Like the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 , we had great hopes for the ThinkPad Android Tablet. Lenovo makes excellent laptops, and it's hard to beat ThinkPads for durability, IPS display options, ultraportable designs and excellent keyboards.
Pros: Pen for note-taking, solid build, USB port, excellent optional keyboard folio.
Cons: Chunky, would be better without bloatware (bloatware is reduced with ICS upgrade).
