ThinkPad Helix hybrid tablet makes an appearance at Lenovo’s Israeli website
The Lenovo ThinkPad Helix is an upcoming Windows 8 tablet aimed at business users. What sets it apart from most of Lenovo’s business-class tablets is the detachable keyboard dock.
While Lenovo has yet to introduce the Helix, it recently showed up on the company’s Israeli website.
Update: The Helix listing has been removed from the page, but you can see a screenshot below.
Right now there’s not much information about the tablet on Lenovo’s web page, but the site does confirm that the device features a multitouch display for finger input as well as support for a digital pen that can convert handwriting into text. The computer also has a 400-nit IPS display with wide viewing angles and gets up to 10 hours of battery life.
Lenovo describes the Helix as a detachable ultrabook “with tablet, laptop, and stand modes.”
According to leaked info that hit the web last week, the Helix has an 11.6 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, an Intel Ivy Bridge processor (up to Core i7), Intel GMA HD 400 graphics, and Windows 8 software.
The keyboard dock also has Lenovo’s TouchPoint system with a standard touchpad as well as a pointing stick in the center of the keyboard.
Lenovo has yet to reveal the price or launch date for the Helix.
