Lenovo is preparing to launch an 8 inch tablet aimed at the business and enterprise markets. An unannounced device called the Lenovo ThinkPad 8 showed up this week at the FCC, and the name suggests we’re looking at a tablet with an 8 inch display.
Unfortunately, we don’t know much more at the moment.
The FCC documents tell us that the ThinkPad 8 supports WiFi networks and the ThinkPad name tells us that this device will be sold by Lenovo’s business division.
What we don’t know is whether it will have an ARM or x86 processor or even if it’ll run Android or Windows software. Lenovo has released tablets with both types of chips and both architectures.
The company did launch its first consumer-oriented 8 inch Windows tablet this summer, so it’s certainly possible that the ThinkPad 8 could be a business-focused alternative to the Intel Bay Trail-powered Lenovo Miix 2. But it could also be a smaller version of last year’s ThinkPad Tablet 2.
