CES 2014: Lenovo unveils ThinkPad 8 tablet

Lenovo ThinkPad 8

Lenovo today announced the ThinkPad 8 tablet. Unlike its first 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet, the Lenovo Miix 2, this one is aimed at the business and professional market segments. Made of machine-cut aluminum, it sports a slightly larger display and perhaps more importantly, a more powerful processor. Accessories such as a keyboard base and dock also allow it to be used as a more traditional PC when not on the move.

Lenovo ThinkPad 8 specifications:

  • Processor: 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Z3770
  • Operating system: Windows 8.1
  • Cellular connectivity: Optional 4G LTE
  • Display: 8.3-inch WUXGA (1920×1200)
  • Storage: Up to 128GB
  • Rear-facing camera: 8MP AF with flash
  • Front-facing camera: 2MP
  • Connectors: Micro-USB 3.0, micro-HDMI
  • Dimensions: 224.3 × 132 × 8.8 millimeters
  • Weight: 430 grams
  • Other: Microsoft Office

Lenovo is also offering a Quickshot Cover for the ThinkPad 8. The cover triggers the camera app as soon as the cover is peeled back to expose the rear camera and also offers a Tent Mode configuration.

The Lenovo ThinkPad 8 will be available later this month starting at US$399.
