Lenovo's first business-class Android-based tablet has arrived. The ThinkPad Tablet comes with many of the features business users want and demand from a tablet, including full encryption, remote wipe capabilities, productivity apps, VPN support, pen-based handwriting recognition technology, and more.
Running on Android 3.1, the ThinkPad Tablet comes preloaded with more than 25 free apps. Many of these apps will be useful to business users. With the tablet's full-size USB port, full-size SD card slot, and microUSB port, transferring files to and from the tablet is easy. The ThinkPad Tablet also has a mini HDMI connector so you can connect the device to a larger display or HDTV for displaying presentations or sharing your favorite video. Using the optional ThinkPad Tablet Keyboard Folio Case, which sells for about $100, you can dock the ThinkPad Tablet and quickly type out a few emails or reports.
That's a lot of features and functionality in a tablet device but does it add up to business user nirvana?
