Also, although the tablet's battery lasts up to seven hours in 3G enabled machines, it could do with some improvement in its battery charging function. Once the tablet's battery charge runs dry and you start charging it, it takes some time for the tablet to power up. Most smart machines, even normal smartphones, allow you to start charging your device and use it at the same time. Not this one. If the tablet's battery is drained out, then using it becomes an irritating experience even though you have plugged it in for charging.
Another weak point is the tablet's speaker (1x0.5 W) which is hardly strong. In my case, my iPhone has better sound than this tablet which is a shame.
The tablet may be weak in sound but is strong in sight. The front (2MP) and back cameras (5MP) are good enough for normal use. Once saved, the photos play out in a slide show which was cute.
The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet comes in Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + 3G options in 16GB and 32GB sizes. The 32GB Wi-Fi + 3G model (bundled with digital Pen and Folio Case) is selling for US$839 (S$999).
According to Lenovo sources, the ThinkPad Tablet Pen retails for S$41 and the ThinkPad Tablet Folio Case for S$34; the ThinkPad Tablet Keyboard Folio Case is available for S$129.
