The tablet has been unofficially titled "ThinkPad", with no relation to the Android tablet of the same name. The tablet boasts a 10.1 inch screen with a 1366×768 pixel resolution and has two webcams – an 8 megapixel camera on the back, and a 2 megapixel front facing camera.

Lenovo officially confirmed the tablet to CNET, and explained that the device was cooperatively developed by Microsoft, Intel and Lenovo. The representative speaking said the tablet will offer "great battery life, responsive touch performance, and great multimedia features."

While there were no official details mentioned regarding other specs like the processor, Engadget believes that the tablet uses a type of Clover Trail processor and that the battery could live for ten hours on a single charge.

There is no marketing information regarding the tablet – no name, no pricing, and no market ETA. This is because Windows 8 has not been released on the market yet. When it does, there will be a veritable slew of other tablets besides this one to choose from. Windows 8 is being designed with a "Metro" interface that will be available on both PC's and tablets.
