Lenovo is getting ready to boost the tablet market with three new tablet releases in August – ThinkPad, IdeaPad K1 and IdeaPad P1.
Lenovo might have lagged behind but it’s going to finish the tablet race with a score. In August, we will be witnessing the arrival of not one but three Lenovo tablets. And that is reason enough for the tablet market competitors to feel threatened. Lenovo recently revealed to the world the numerous features, software and hardware design of it’s soon to be released products. They have been specified as ThinkPad, IdeaPad K1 and IdeaPad P1.
Starting from Lenovo ThinkPad, this Android Honeycomb 3.1 powered tablet will come in Wi-Fi version. Coming to its features, the tablet supports a micro USB port, HDMI output, 3 in 1 memory card reader, SIM card slot, dual core processor, USB 2.0 port and both back and front cameras. All this, along with a dock connector makes quite a lot of hardware, in terms of connectivity options. And added to all this is the ThinkPad’s stylus pen that has a reasonable price of $30. The tablet itself will hit the market at an expected cost of $500 and this is going to make one 16 GB Android full customer happy tablet by Lenovo.
Following the Lenovo ThinkPad is another Android Honeycomb 3.1 running tablet, the IdeaPad K1. This one will also launch at a price of $500 and will support a 10.1 inch display screen. It has been compared to Toshiba’s Thrive tablet and Samsung’s Galaxy tablet in terms of its screen size and coloured casings. Besides that, its 32 GB version will come with a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor.
And finally, coming to the last of the three Lenovo installments, we have IdeaPad P1. What sets this tablet apart from the other two is that P1 will be powered by Windows 7 instead of Android Honeycomb. But similar to the ThinkPad, this IdeaPad P1 will come with its own stylus pen. Other features of the tablet include DDR2 memory of 2 GB, 1.5 GHz Intel processor and would launch in Wi-Fi and 3G versions. For now, that is all we got out of Lenovo concerning its P1 tablet which apparently does not even have a fixed price as yet.
Apple, HP, RIM, Dell, Samsung, Motorola, ASUS, Toshiba – all such tablet making companies should keep their eyes and ears wide open in the market for Lenovo’s launches. The brand is all set to make its mark among the tablet manufacturing crowd. Moreover, all of the above three threatening tablets will have ability to run Netflix. Apple and Android are no longer the only platforms capable of this service. In the end, the verdict states that there is going to be some serious competition in August as Lenovo has taken its time to plan its next move.
