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.

Don't get me wrong. I love trackpoints and I'm no fan of touch (I still have a dumbphone and I have no intention of switching from my trusty keyboard-controlled tiling window manager anytime soon), but I do appreciate me some fine irony. The comment about the trackpoint being for marketing purposes is dead on--what kind of ThinkPad wouldn't have a trackpoint? Or for that matter a stylus--isn't that so typically IBM-esque?

Accordingly, what kind of ThinkPad really fits in with Microsoft's vision of Windows 8? None that I know of. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.
