A recent interview with a Lenovo senior vice president has let loose that the Chinese-owned brand is seriously considering a proper slate tablet for their enterprise customers.
Non-PC devices have been growing in popularity over the past few years in business. Blackberries led the way, iPhones are growing strong, and the iPad kicked off the slate tablet craze. With Cisco’s Cius and Blackberry’s PlayBook leading the charge in enterprise tablets, the possibility is there for Lenovo to join the fray.
Of course, they are understandably cautious and will be watching the market (e.g. Cisco, Blackberry & Apple). The good news is that such a product would be a Think-branded product and offer the utility that comes with the name. Proper features and input capabilities would be a must, along with all-day battery life.
