Lenovo ThinkPad Android tablet goes on sale

One of Lenovo's first two Android Honeycomb 3.1 tablets, called the ThinkPad Tablet has finally gone on sale. Designed for the enterprise market, the ThinkPad Tablet can be used with an optional digital stylus for both handwritten text input as well as document mark-up and drawing. The first press images were leaked back in July when we also got our hands-on with the ThinkPad along with its consumer-oriented sibling the IdeaPad K1.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet sports a 10.1-inch WXGA 1280x800 16:10 IPS panel display covered with Gorilla Glass. It runs on the NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core 1GHz processor with 1GB of RAM and has a storage capacity of up to 64GB. It has USB 2.0 and micro-USB ports along with HDMI-out and SD card slot. It delivers a professional multimedia and entertainment experience and fully supports Adobe Flash.

But it's main differentiators are in its optional digital stylus and its enterprise security features. It offers network passwords, full device and SD card encryption, as well as lost-device disablement and anti-theft software. The 16GB WiFi-only model is listed at $499, the 32GB WiFi/3G model is $569, and the 64GB WiFi/3G model is $669. They are all available to order now and estimated to ship by August 29.
