Apple and Samsung has long been dominating the tablet market, conquering the sales and profit, each year of every quarter, where likely only few would step-up to compete with them. With high expectations from the tablet lovers or buyers they seem to always come up with new specs and add-ups, giving their audiences the best feature to offer for a tablet. Analysts considered both to top every quarter’s tablet performance which for the last quarter Apple iPad 2 dominated the tablet sales results.

Entering for this quarter (US) this year, a another renowned laptop manufacturing company vies to enter the competition and will try to take the lead.

Lenovo has been working out to produce a new tablet that would par up with Samsung’s Tab and the current leader, the iPad 2 and ironically, to battle out Microsoft Surface.

In a press release statement, Lenovo will be releasing the new “ThinkPad Tablet 2” that will be powered by Microsoft’s very own Windows 8 and other cool feats to be added. Highlighting their optional pen input for what the company describes as “differentiators that matter” in the tablet segment.

But would it be enough to differ from other tablets and stay unique? When will this be available?

What to expect

“Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2: Looks like a Tablet, Behaves Like a PC”. For this 4th quarter there will be many options for tablet lovers. Joining Microsoft Surface, Apple iPad, Samsung Tab and Google Nexus Tablet is Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet.

It is slightly thicker than the Apple iPad by .39 inches, but it will be lighter. After the pre-release engineering sample, Lenovo will surely level with the big players. Along with Google’s Nexus Q fixes, Lenovo is also fixing their tablet based on feedback given from the pre-sample.
