Earlier this month we saw a confidential document leak from inside of Lenovo which suggested that there is a ThinkPad branded Windows 8 OS running tablet on its way.


And today things have gone official as the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 was unveiled to the world in full glory.

The ThinkPad Tablet 2 will go on to eventually replace the original ThinkPad which runs on the Android OS and Windows 8 has taken its place. The specifications of the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 go on to match the previously leaked ones which include:

  • 9.8mm thick
  • Optional support for pen input
  • NFC, 3G / 4G connectivity
  • Fingerprint reader
  • Dock which includes a keyboard
  • Micro HDMI, 3 USB ports, and an Ethernet jack

The tablet is set to arrive in October alongside the Windows 8 OS, which will go public on October 26. No details on the pricing of the Tablet 2 have been revealed yet and we expect it to happen only at the time of launch.
