Looks like the ThinkPad Tablet 2 isn’t the only Windows 8 tablet Lenovo’s planning on releasing on the 26th alongside Windows 8 – introducing the IdeaTab Lynx, an Intel Atom device meant to be paired with a bundled (at some price points) keyboard dock, which turns it into a full blown laptop in a snap.
The IdeaTab Lynx features a large 11.6″ 1366 x 768 IPS display, 2GB of RAM standard, and comes in both a 32GB and a 64GB model. The particular Atom you’ll find in here is Intel’s brand new “Cloverview” dual core Atom, clocked at 1.8 GHz. Lenovo is also advertising around 16 hours of battery life, certainly impressive considering how poorly previous generation Atoms performed in that space.
Though the tablet itself is short on ports (no complaint here), the keyboard dock completes the package with two USB 2.0 ports, a Micro HDMI port, and a MicroSD card slot.
The Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx will start at $599 (without the keyboard dock), which seems more than fair for everything you’re getting. You’ll be able to buy it online right as the clock hits 12 on October 26th.
