Since there haven't been many reviews of the Thinkpad Tablet yet, I wanted to add to the list. I've had a chance to demo three tablets so far: HP Touchpad, Galaxy Tab, and the Toshiba Thrive. In my opinion the Thinkpad beats them all. Here's why...

The device is touted as a having a "business focus" and that's certainly true. The digitizer pen has gotten it's share of publicity. It's useful out of the box, but it doesn't work universally within the tablet. I've only used it with the Notes app so far. It takes some getting used to, but if you watch the demo in the Notes section you can get a good feel for it quickly. The online demos tend to show the real-time handwriting to text functionality. The app's demo shows a far more effective method of "drawing" the text and converting it from handwriting later. The keyboard folio is not out yet, so no review of that, but I did hook it up to a USB keyboard with a built in mouse. It loaded a cursor automatically (The Thrive does this too, couldn't try it on a G-tab since there's no USB). In my opinion, however, the most beneficial thing they did for the business user is load a printing app that integrates with Google Cloud print. It took five minutes to set up printing from a wi-fi network to a printer networked on a separate VLAN. I'm pretty sure you need to keep your computer running with Chrome open. Not a big deal and it doesn't require changes on the printer server or loading software somewhere else on the network.

In terms of look and feel, it's a lot bigger than the Galaxy Tab. You do get set ports that rivals many laptops and beats a lot of netbooks. I've not understood why so many reviewers, particularly in the gadget press, make a big deal out of size and weight with these devices. If .

This is my first tablet, so I will not compare it to the iPad. I would first like to say that this Tablet is solid looking like a typical Lenovo Thinkpad. It is more than apparent that this tablet is more substance than style, and this is something that I prefer. It is not the sexiest or trendiest looking tablet, but it has the classic Lenovo Thinkpad look that businesses (and even many home users) may enjoy. The backing of it is this non-shiny soft substance that is almost like a casing. The glass of the screen is Guerrilla glass that is durable, smooth and shiny. It has a really nice feel for touch screen, but the shiny surface may be a little annoying if you work outside. Also, fingerprints do show on the screen especially when it is off, but that is common for most touch screens. When the screen is on, there is no issue. Speaking of the screen, it has a nice bright LCD screen with outstanding viewing angles. No complaints in that department. The tablet also has plenty of slots. It has a full sized USB slot, a mini HDMI out, SD card slot, etc. Because of this, it is slightly thinker than other tablets. It is not, however, cumbersome at all.

Now I will first comment on common features:
Android Honeycomb 3.1 - This is my first Android device. I want to say that I absolutely love the OS. I did have to learn how to use the OS, but once I learned how to use it, I really started to enjoy its versitility. What I love about Android is my ability to customize my pages with widgets of my choosing. I can, for example, place a calendar in one of my homepages with reminders of future appointments, events, etc. For a tablet specifically, I find this feature important. I have an iPhone, and iOS is really nice for a phone, but I prefer the flexibility of Android for a tablet.

Verified Purchase
I love love love this thing. I'm an artist and before this I used a Wacom with my laptop. This proved to be a cumbersome set up. The problem was there was no viable replacement. Tablets didn't have styluses; those that did only could use it in proprietary software (see HTC Flyer). I didn't really want to buy a touchscreen laptops since it would be a bit of a redundant purchase. Then I found the Lenovo thinkpad.

I use mine daily as a digital sketchbook. The program I use is Sketchbook Mobile for Autodesk. The Thinkpad (as far as I've been able to find thus far) is the ONLY tablet that supports stylus input for this app (which thus far is THE app for drawing with android). The input via the pen is fluid, comfortable, and easy. Pressure sensitivity works well.

The included software is IMO mostly junk. One is just a trial too: printershare; you only can use it 20 times then you have to buy it. Notes works pretty good at converting your writing to text. I found the Lenovo widgets tend to crash a lot, not to mention a little ugly. You don't have to use these and you probably shouldn't. I cant speak for citix or any of the security stuff, but my point is don't buy this for the "free apps" that come with it.

I've experience only a few hiccups here and there, nothing major, while using the tablet. Things like a tiny momentary lapse in recognition by the pen, or very occasionally when changing orientation things can get a little wonky. I attribute this mostly to honeycomb, and not the tablet. The speaker sucks, but they are workable. One nice thing is the task manager Lenovo built in making it easy to switch/close apps on demand. I find the carousel less useful just because I forget to use it.

One major complaint I see frequently is that it cant charge while in use.
