Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet

Lenovo ThinkPad TabletThe first serious Android business tablet, Lenovo’s 10-inch ThinkPad Tablet has an active stylus which uses N-Trig DuoSense technology and a powerful note-taking app which converts your scribbles into ASCII text. Better still, the ThinkPad tablet features the encryption and remote wipe capability IT departments demand. UI enhancements like Lenovo’s App wheel and the ability to close programs from the layers menu round out this unique offering.

ASUS Eee Pad Slider

ASUS Eee Pad SliderWith ASUS’s Eee Pad Slider, there’s no need to carry a separate keyboard attachment as a full QWERTY just folds out like it would on a phone. Other goodies on this 10-inch Android slate include a full size USB port and a bright IPS display supercharge this slate.

    The only real vote that matters is the one that has dollar signs attached.

    Strange… wee hours of the morning around 2-3am est, after relatively close voting, 500+ votes show up out of nowhere for the Lenovo.

    As Arsenio used to say, hmmmmmm

    Me thinks someone found a way to take advantage of your poll. Looked like the slider thingie had a healthy advantage, and at 2-3am EST, hundreds of mysterious votes show up for the other. Strange…

    I agree with “Wondering”
    I was keeping a close eye on the scores and the instantaneous jump for Lenovo does not make much sense…?
