Lenovo Developing Windows 8 Tablet With Intel
 

The tablet market is heating up gradually, after Apple, Samsung, BlackBerry, and Sony; we have heard that Lenovo is also planning to up the ante in the tablet market. According to a report coming in, Lenovo is developing a ThinkPad Tablet in association with Intel. The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet will run on Microsoft's Windows 8 OS, according to the reports from Lenovo. We haven’t received any specific date regarding the official launch of the Lenovo ThinkPad tablet, but sources suggests that it will be launched somewhere around the launch of Microsoft’s Windows 8 OS. If that has to be believed, we could see the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet on the shelves by the end of this year, because Windows 8 will be launched later this year. Lenovo will be targeting the business-centered buyers in the market, as Intel’s x86 architecture based chips just as processors from the company delivers many benefits to the business customers. It’s worth mentioning that the x86 architecture gives you backward compatibility. The new Windows 8 OS will support many present apps, which are already running on Windows, which dominates the Operating System world in PC market. Intel also has plans to launch a chip specifically built for tablets --- tentatively called Clover Trail ---- when the Windows 8 Operating System enters the market. Intel’s only serious rival on Windows 8 is ARM, which ships the processors for most of the tablets in the market. The touch based Windows 8 will be available in three different variants -- Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro for x86 chips and Windows RT for ARM. It should be known that Lenovo is the fourth largest tablet seller in the world after Apple, Samsung, and Amazon; and in terms of PC selling, Lenovo is the second largest PC seller in the world thanks to the increasing shipments in its native land China and an extension of the international distribution channel.
