Lenovo is expected to launch at least two Android tablets this year: a consumer oriented IdeaPad K1 and a business tablet wearing the ThinkPad brand name. We’ve seen plenty of evidence of the IdeaPad tablet, but very little news about the ThinkPad model. But now the folks at ZTop got brief glimpse at the new business tablet at an event in Brazil.
The tablet will reportedly have a case with a keyboard and an optical sensor that works like a TrackPoint, allowing you to use a finger to navigate — which isn’t nearly as useful on an Android device as Windows since there’s no cursor. Still, the optical sensor should make selecting text easier when you’re using the keyboard.
The rest of the specs look like seem to be standard Android 3.x tablet fare, including a dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display.
Lenovo could officially introduce the tablet in three or four weeks.
” which isn’t nearly as useful on an Android device as Windows since there’s no cursor.”
Perhaps the cursor isn’t in their by default(though I think it is) Lenovo could very easily add one just like Asus did with their keyboard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfkZeIT9qmY (around 11:20)
