Unnamed Lenovo tablet hits the FCC, could be the IdeaTab Lynx

A mystery Lenovo tablet showed up at the FCC website this week. While the documents don’t tell us much about the device, other than the fact that it supports 802.11n WiFi, a few tiny photos show a device that looks like a Windows tablet with a few USB ports, docking connectors on the bottom, and some other identified ports.

In other words, we could be looking at the upcoming Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx or ThinkPad Helix.

Both of those are expected to be Windows 8 tablet which can be used in laptop mode when you connect a detachable keyboard.

My money would be on the Lynx, since the photos show a tablet with almost sharp corners — which is pretty much what the Lynx looks like in promo shots. The Helix appears to have edges that are a bit more curved.

The Lynx is expected to ship in December or January for $599 and up. It has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, an Intel Atom Clover Trail processor, 2GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.

You can pre-order the tablet from B&H for $600.

Lenovo hasn’t officially announced the Helix yet, but it’s expected to have an 11.6 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display and an Intel Ivy Bridge processor. I suspect it’ll also have a much higher price tag.
