Lenovo Thinkpad 10 coming with next-gen Baytrail specs.

Updated on 09 April 2014 by

tp10tMiix 2 8 and Miix 2 10, Thinkpad 8 and Thinkpad 10. It makes sense, right? The Thinkpad 10 is due to launch next month if the news is correct. Expect something to challenge the HP Elitepad 1000 and Fujitsu Q584 and something that could have all the great qualities we’ve already seen on the Thinkpad 8 but with more processing power, more RAM, an optional keyboard and a lot of business options. Yes, pricing is going to be on the high side but if they can engineer something lighter than the competition, this could be the one.

The Lenovo Thinkpad 10 news comes via Tabtech.de who have picked the news up from the forums over at TabletPCReview where multiple references have been obtained. How about this, found at a reseller website:

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 10 (20C1000M) 10.1″ FHD, Intel Atom Z3795 1.6GHz, 4GB RAM, 128GB Flash, Integrated Graphics, 802.11 abgn / BT 4.0/3G LTE, fingerprint, Micro SD, SmartCard, Digitizer + Pen, W8.1 PRO 32.

Apparently the WWAN, smartcard reader and fingerprint reader will be options but no-one is really sure at this stage. The Win8.1 32-bit OS looks strange considering the Elitepad 1000 runs 64-bit on the same CPU.

The Z3795 on 64-bit Windows with 4GB RAM should turn in some nice performance figures. With a clock that’s running from 1.6-2.4Ghz it should beat the Baytrail version of the Z3770 that we’re testing in the Dell Venue 11 Pro right now.

It’s great to see some competition in the 10-inch tablet space but as many people in the forum thread are highlighting, even the Thinkpad 8 is not generally available yet. The Thinkpad 10 could go to special project requirements first before you see it in the reseller channels. We’ll see what we can do to get some more information over the next weeks.

    Will the screen be 16:9 instead of matching the 8’s 16:10 screen? 16:9 is awkward for portrait use. Well, I’d ideally like 4:3 for portrait use. Hopefully, the keyboard dock physically attaches this time and keeps the trackpoint.

  2. bolo says:

    Well, in the linked to forum page, people are saying it is 16:10

    I am still searching for that 64 bit tablet on the (real) market that should have been out within “Q1 2014” because someone said so.

  4. Chippy says:

    Yup. 64-bit target dates missed. It could be a few months before we even see consumer tablets with 64-bit.

    I hope Lenovo allows this to be configured for a slower Bay Trail chip (if it can noticeably reduce the price), no NFC, no GPS, no Bluetooth, no fingerprint reader, no smartcard reader but with LTE, 4 GB RAM, digitizer and pen silo, 64 GB eMMC and attachable dock with the famous ThinkPad keyboard and trackpoint.

    As for the Elitepad 1000. That’s not shipping yet right? The 32-bit/64-bit Windows thing in this article makes me wonder if 64-bit drivers for the Bay Trail chips are available now or still in progress. Ideally, I’d like to dual boot Linux on it when docked.

  6. Mark says:

    I hope the SD slot isn’t limited to ~25 MB/s. The other Bay Trail tablets are limited to that due to the internal bus used. 25 MB/s is too slow for me when I’m trying to use the SD slot for expanded storage for more than just periodic backups (ie. frequent read/writes as if it’s the main storage).

  7. roma says:

    With people using the SD card slot as a second drive for frequent access type tasks (ie. software installation, download destination, temp storage, etc.), the 25 MB/s bus limit on current Bay Trail tablets are pretty annoying.
