Computer maker Levono is offering a tablet geared toward business users, which will run on the Android Honeycomb 3.1 operating system, with an option to upgrade.
The Thinkpad Tablet has a 10.1 inch screen similar to the average tablet. A key feature is the attached digital pen, which can be used to "write" on the screen similar to a stylus. Other devices can host handwritten note-taking, but Levono is marketing their new product as enterprise-friendly with the option to include a holster attached to the side. In addition, it comes with Microsoft Office-enabled Documents to Go and has a keyboard dock for easy conversion into a computer-style viewing and workstation.
Levono's Thinkpads feature a company-specific port as well as both full-sized and mini USB sockets for the use of tablet and mobile phone accessories.
This is the first Android-based tablet geared specifically toward corporate users, catching the wave of professionals turning to mobile devices for computing. With Wi-Fi capabilities and a sturdy design, in addition to a host of business-oriented applications offered standard with the device and an app store of company-specific software, the Thinkpad may prove as popular as the Levono's notebook line of the same name.
