Tam Noda (The Philippine Star) - June 12, 2013 - 4:52pm

MANILA, Philippines - Lenovo has announced the arrival of its latest lineup of Windows 8 touch-optimized Think devices designed to optimize workplace productivity for small medium businesses (SMBs) and enterprises.

"SMBs and enterprises go for practical and simple devices that can be used for a variety of office needs. Our latest ThinkPad devices, the ThinkPad Helix and ThinkPad Tablet 2, combine performance and versatility befitting the multi-faceted lifestyle of today's corporate workers and business professionals," Vicky Agorilla, Lenovo Philippines general manager, announced on Tuesday.

Agorilla said both devices feature advanced software like Lenovo Cloud Storage and offer the companies and IT managers the support they need to secure and manage company data seamlessly.

ThinkPad Tablet 2 has a thin and light design measuring 9.8 milimeters (mm) and weighing less than 600 grams (1.3 pounds). It has a 10.1-inch screen.

The latest lineup is powered by Intel Atom processor-based mobile platform and Windows 8 Pro, has an HD display, front and rear cameras for video conferencing and uploading photos, noise canceling microphones, HDMI port and wireless video streaming.

The tablet supports multiple input methods: multi-finger touch and an optional digitizer and pen, especially good for note-taking, capturing signatures and completing forms.

Specifically designed for Windows 8, ThinkPad Tablet 2 serves as a multi-use tablet. It has an optional digitizer and pen for precision input, along with security features like a Fingerprint Reader, IT manageability technologies, and corporate-level service and support.

Using Windows 8 Pro and the Intel SGX545 with HD graphics, IT managers can provide for VPN access, utilize existing Windows management tools, manage application deployment and block users from installing certain apps.

Yet the ThinkPad Helix is a premium convertible that defines the next generation of mobile computing through its "rip and flip" design for mobile freedom and versatility with multiple unique ways to use it.

ThinkPad Helix first functions as a high performance Ultrabook. For added mobility, the 11.6-inch tablet can separate from its base to become the thinnest full-function Intel 3rd generation Core Tablet with vpro, also weighing in at 835 grams, making it one of the lightest around.

The innovative rip and flip screen lets users flip the tablet 180 degrees and snap it back into the base -- this mode called Stand mode, transforms Helix into a mini-movie theatre or business presentation central. From here, users can also fold the screen down to use it as a tablet while keeping the base connected for added ports and connectivity.  

Both devices will be sold in Think Exclusive Stores (TES) and Lenovo's corporate channel partner retailers. ThinkPad Helix will be available by the end of June priced at P78,990, while the ThinkPad Tablet 2 will be available early July with suggested retail price of P37,990.
