Lenovo has had its fair share of hits in the past, and they do seem to have more than just a passing interest in the world of tablets. Well, one of their upcoming projects that is being prepared to be unleashed among the masses would be the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2. This Windows 8-powered ThinkPad Tablet 2 was initially scheduled for an October 26th launch this year, but apparently things did not go as planned, and delays meant October turned into November, followed by further delays that saw November go by. I guess “soon” would be a more reasonable timeframe, considering how the ThinkPad Tablet 2 has already seen its FCC filings approved, which is always a good thing for the gadget-seeking faithful.
The FCC documents for the ThinkPad Tablet 2 were filed by Lenovo’s OEM partner Wistron Corporation, where it mentioned the device’s Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and WWAN capabilities. In fact, it also picked up approval for use of GSM bands 850 and 1900, in addition to WCDMA bands II and V, which are what AT&T relies on in the US. Too bad there was no approval for NFC or LTE use, but bear in mind that such features could be lined up for the ThinkPad Tablet 2’s successor.
