The tablet can be configured to run 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB internal memory, with the base model featuring 2 GB RAM and 32 GB internal memory. In addition to an 8 MP camera at the back, there is a 2 MP shooter at the front.
In terms of connectivity, there is a Micro-HDMI, Micro-SD and a Micro-USB port. The tablet comes in two variants, one with Wi-Fi only and the other featuring LTE connectivity. The ThinkPad 8 runs Windows 8.1 Pro, and Lenovo is throwing in a free version of Microsoft Office 2013 with the tablet. Lenovo is also releasing a Quickshot Cover accessory along with the tablet.
The ThinkPad 8 will be available from end of January, with prices for the base configuration at $399.
