In the past, I used my tablet for simple web surfing and my trusty ThinkPad laptop for getting serious work done. But since I got ahold of Lenovo’s new ThinkPad Tablet 2, it’s changed the way I look at—and use—my devices. I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that my PC is now <600 grams and has 10 hours of battery life. I’ve been using it extensively and I thought I’d share a few cool things you can do with the ThinkPad Tablet 2.
First a quick spec summary of this 10.1” tablet: it sports a dual-core Intel Atom processor, 2GB memory, weighs under 600 grams, has an active digitizer pen, a resolution of 1366x768, dual cameras (8MP and 2MP), HDMI and USB 2.0 ports, SIM tray, MicroSD card slot, GPS, WLAN, BT and NFC radios. (Full spec list here.)
With that out of the way, here are 8 cool things you can do with the ThinkPad Tablet 2:
1. Install your favorite apps. The Windows app store is growing by the day. The ThinkPad tablet runs Windows 8 Pro so you can download and install any traditional desktop application along with the mobile apps available there. Anything you can run on Windows XP, Vista or 7 will run flawlessly on this tablet.
2. Charge/sync your devices. With the tablet’s USB 2.0 port, you can connect phones, MP3 players and other tablets...
