PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "It'll be a full x86 device - Lenovo calls a 'joint effort' with Intel and Microsoft - that clocks in at 1.3 pounds with a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 display. It's billed to have 10-hour battery life, which would be impressive for a device only 9.8mm thick. The standard model is Wi-Fi-only, but there will also be carrier versions including one with AT&T's LTE connectivity." If you see a 1366x768 resolution on a 10.1" display, they blew it.

Introducing the all-new Microsoft Windows 8, a touch-optimized computing experience. Now featuring trackpoint AND stylus.

Good work, Team ThinkPad. Doubling down on your guns.

Keyboards for tablets should be built-in, otherwise, get a netbook. But a pointer device built in is at least a step in the right direction.

It would hardly be a Thinkpad without the former, would it? I get the impression the red nipple is as much for brand recognition as actual functionality now.

The tablet's not on my radar, but I wouldn't even consider a laptop that didn't come with a Trackpoint clitoris.

Heck, I'd actually be willing to pay extra for a Thinkpad or Tecra that was Trackpoint-only, sans those putrid multitouch-touchpad things.
