Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet Preview, Hands On Video

8 thumbs up

Our first impressions with the ThinkPad Tablet are positive. The tablet seems responsive, and we like some of the customizations Lenovo has added to the standard Android user interface. One of the added features we're enjoying is the App launcher which provides easy access to apps without cluttering the screen with icons and without launching the full application listing.

Taking a quick look at a couple performance benchmarks, you can see that the ThinkPad Tablet performs very well in the BenchmarkPi and Linpack tests. Of course, we'll run all of our typical benchmarks and publish them in our full, detailed review for you in the days ahead, but we thought we'd give you an early sneak peek at this tablet.

"Nice preview video, the Thinkpad is pretty quick and responsive, I also like the App wheel plus the plethora of inputs and the mini HDMI output. I just have a problem with the buttons. In games mostly that involve the accelerometer its likely to get touched accidentally too many times due to fact its the most likely scenario to hold the tablet horizontally. I like to use the IPad in pivot mode mostly when im holding it, but when I put in the table, I use it in wide mode, so no problem there. '

"Speaking of accelerometer, I noticed it did not kick in when it was being flip around in the begining, was it disabled? Anyhow, good preview, and the Pen should be included for the asking price and not sold separate for $30, I think its a bad move and something that Lenovo can easily afford to include."

One thing that confuses me is this. IBM invented the slate/tablet years ago. Yes this is an Android, Arm processor model etc, but IBM/Lenovo invented the device space to begin with. SO I know it is different because of that cpu/OS combo, but if they invented the category (ThinkPad 700T) it is nowhere near there first.
