The FCC slipped up and released pictures of the IBM/Lenovo X41 Tablet PC a few weeks ago. We had actually test drove the device months ago and had to bit our tongues as information leaked out. But now the X41 Tablet is here and has IBM done Tablet right. The X41 is the lightest, most secure convertible tablet on the market.
The X41 Tablet is the lightest convertible on the market, coming in at only 3.5 pounds with a 12″ display. The battery life is tops as well, the longest of any 12″ tablet on the market. The display offers anti-reflective and anti-glare coatings to make viewing indoors especially clear. For expansion the X41 is compatible with the new X4 dock. The X41 Tablet will start shipping on June 14th. While the price hasn’t been announced yet, Lenovo has indicated it will be at the high end of the scale, presumably around $2200.
In our brief experience with the X41, we were simply overwhelmed by the size and stability of the unit. The hinge is strong, the keyboard fantastic and the case designed to take a tumble. For potential buyers where size, durability and quality are more important than price, the X41 Tablet will not be beat.
