Lenovo IdeaPad P1 Windows 7 Tablet is a Charmer; Geared for Q4 Arrival

July 20, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Windows 7 enthusiasts looking to play with a tablet driven by the Microsoft OS are many. When such a slate comes their way, it would only be natural that they get on to celebration mode. The festivities are sure to begin, considering that Lenovo has outed their Windows 7 Tablet PC. The tablet with optional pen input, christened IdeaPad P1 is one device we too were waiting for.

Complete with a 1.5GHz Intel processor, 2GB DDR2 RAM and up to 64GB SSD storage, the new Windows 7 tablet comes with a 10.1-inch HD display with a 1280 x 800 resolution. The dual touch screen technology also supports pen or finger-touch.

A 2 megapixel front-facing camera, a USB 2.0 port, Micro SD card reader and docking port are also thrown in. The Windows 7 OS will also let you use the pen to turn writing into text with the Windows 7 input panel and with OneNote. Sounds very business like, right?

All of 14.5mm in thickness and 1.79 pounds in weight, the tablet comes across as highly portable gadget – though not as thin as the Apple iPad 2.

On the connectivity front, Lenovo has thrown in Bluetooth, WiFi and optional 3G. The 2-cell battery included in the tablet promises 6 hours of life, but then we would have expected more.

The tablet we see in fact is a charmer. We are pretty sure we will go for a buy. We will, however, have to wait till it arrives in stores in the fourth quarter of 2011. In the meanwhile, let us find out if Lenovo has decided on what would be on the price tag. Tell us if you are planning get yours.
