Lenovo's ThinkPad Tablet 2 has been officially announced by the company, sans the price

After several leaks, most of the specs are already known about Lenovo's upcoming ThinkPad Tablet 2. However, Lenovo has finally made an official announcement and outed just about everything we could want to know...except the price. I'm not sure what it is with Windows 8 tablet makers, but they don't seem to want to let the price be known.

The device is a 10-inch slate powered by Windows 8 and an Intel Atom processor. The screen is a 1366x768 IPS display, which should help with color reproduction and viewing angles. It reportedly gets 10 hours of battery life, comes with optional 3G/4G connectivity, and a micro-HDMI video output port.

 

It sports two cameras, 2MP and 8MP. The cellular connection will mainly be HSPA+, however, the tablet will be compatible with AT&T's LTE network as well. More incredible is the thickness: 9.8mm. Inside that slim package, Lenovo has packed NFC connectivity, a fingerprint reader, and a stylus, which can be stored inside the tablet.
