Lenovo’s Windows 10 Tablet to Arrive in August

Lenovo will be among one of the first companies to offer a Windows 10 tablet, with a new ThinkPad device which is all set to arrive in August.

The next-generation ThinkPad 10 will be loaded with Microsoft's forthcoming OS and is majorly meant for business users. The device will be launched with a starting price of $499.

The ThinkPad 10 is made available with a choice of quad-core Intel Atom processors, the X5 Z8500 or the X7 Z8700, which are part of Intel's 'Cherry Trail' line of processors.

Other option made available for the users includes either 2GB or 4GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.

Apart from the faster processors and a new USB 3.0 port, the ThinkPad 10 is otherwise very much similar to the previous generation.

The ThinkPad still contains a micro-SD card slot, and there is optional support for a fingerprint reader and smart card reader. Its 10.1 inch screen comes with a resolution of 1920 pixels by 1200, along with a battery life of up to 10 hours.

As compared to an iPad Air 2 at 437 grams, the ThinkPad 10 is a bit heavier with 617 grams of weight.

However, it can also be turned into a lightweight laptop with its optional ThinkPad Folio attachable keyboard, which contains magnetic slots that the tablet can easily fasten on to.

Apart from revelation of ThinkPad 10, Lenovo even unveiled a multimedia streaming device that works like Google's Chromecast.

The Lenovo Cast allows its users to display content from a smartphone or tablet on a TV. It has a shape like that of a hockey puck and can be plugged into a display's HDMI port.

It will be launched at a price of $49 and will be made available for sale in August.
