It’s all about the flare now. Laptops need to look cool, feel cool and have cool features that aren’t necessarily useful (I’m looking at you, Touch Bar) in order to appeal to the mass market, to appeal to that group of people who want to feel like they’re one of the elite. What about those of us who want all the performance, but without the frills?

About 6 months ago, Lenovo Malaysia has announced that 2 Android tablets will be coming our way. The IdeaPad K1 was launched in Malaysia few months ago at RM1,499 but that didn’t created as much impact as the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The next device that is more anticipated is the ThinkPad tablet, which features a more business look from the iconic ThinkPad line of business laptops.
So far there hasn’t been any news about it until recently someone had spotted a newspaper ad which Lenovo seems to be clueless about. The ad reveals the ThinkPad Tablet price starting from RM2,199 for the 32GB version and there’s also a 64GB version as well. The person that spotted it tried to get more details from the retailers but none of them are aware of such device. On the facebook page, Lenovo later clarified that the ThinkPad tablets are on their way into Malaysia and should be available in mid-January 2012.
For RM2,199, that’s quite a lot to ask for considering Ice Cream Sandwich tablets like the ASUS Transformer Prime are on their way as well. However the ThinkPad tablet offers a wide variety of ports such as full sized USB port, mini-USB, mini-HDMI output and a full sized SD card slot. In terms of internal hardware, it runs on 1.0 GHz Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 5MP camera and front facing 2MP camera.
Is there anyone waiting for the ThinkPad tablet? IMCC has already listed the product at RM2,199 on their site but didn’t provide much details of the specification just yet.

Lenovo Malaysia via its Facebook page has just clued us in on its upcoming product launch and if the pictures are what we think they are, you’re looking at two brand-spanking new Honeycomb tablets from Lenovo coming to Malaysia.
Lenovo has two Honeycomb tablets in its range of devices. One is the 10.1-inch (1280 x 800 pixel) IdeaPad K1 Android tablet. As the name suggests the IdeaPad K1 is more of a media/entertainment-centric device complete with a keyboard or media dock option. Specs-wise the K1 features custom Honeycomb interface along with a Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 32GB of storage, dual cameras (5 megapixel rear and 2 megapixel front-facing), a microSD card slot, a micro HDMI out, and a SIM card slot.
The other is ThinkPad Android tablet which, true to the ThinkPad brand, is more catered to business professionals. The ThinkPad tablet also includes a stylus and a storage silo, four physical buttons, an SD card slot as well as USB and HDMI. Processing power is via a dual-core Tegra 2 CPU with 1GB RAM.
No official details yet but pricing on the IdeaPad K1 is expected to hover around the RM1,400 while the ThinkPad tablet should retail for around a few hundred ringgit more, not expecting anything over RM2,500
