Lenovo ThinkPad 3G Tablets Spotted at FCC Gates, Compatible with AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile Bands

Lenovo fans, here’s what you have been waiting for. The Chinese company will soon be bringing in two new ThinkPad tablet versions from their stables.

The two slates were spotted passing through the FCC corridors a while ago.

The company, recognizing the faults in the Wi-Fi only version of their earlier outing, is planning to strike back with the new models.

From the FCC filings, we get to know that the ThinkPad tablets come with 3G support.

The GSM 850/1900, CDMA 850/1900, and WCDMA bands II, IV and V compatibility of the devices was also revealed from the documents.

 

This shows that the slates will operate on most wireless carriers like AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile in the US.

Support for most of the international carriers will be something that the folks outside the US will be happy to hear.

Meanwhile, the FCC documents submitted by the OEM Compal (see them here and here)  don’t specify much about the LTE features of the two new ThinkPad tablets.

It is believed that the new slates will come with the same features as that of the Wi-Fi version ThinkPad. Powered by Android Honeycomb, the devices are expected to be equipped with an NVIDIA 1GHz Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an optional 16/32/64GB built-in memory, dual cameras and ports of micro-USB and HDMI and a stylus to play on the 10.1-inch touchscreen.

Aren’t you excited?
