GBM InkShow: Interview with Lenovo’s Mika Majapuro on the ThinkPad X200T Tablet PC

I got a chance to talk with Lenovo World Wide Product Manager, Mika Majapuro, prior to the Pepcom kick off and he was kind enough to sit down and walk through the new improvements and features of the Lenovo ThinkPad X200t Tablet PC. Lenovo is trumpeting three takeaways here, improved battery life, the multi-media features, and improved performance. Take a listen to what Mika has to say. I think you’ll hear a few surprises.

    I have the X60 Tablet and love it. I thought about getting the X61 because of the dual touch and pen screen and the better heat control, but have held off because of the low resolution (low, that is, when compared to the 1400×1050 that I have now).

    Unfortunately it seems that the X200 has two strikes against it (1) because of the low screen resolution and (2) because they got rid of the navdial button. I use this button extensively when reading Zinio magazines and when looking at my school textbooks (which I’ve scanned into PDF and onto which I take my class notes with PDF Annotator). Too bad Lenovo removed it — they should put it back!

    By the way, how *is* the experience of reading magazines or textbooks on the widescreens? My textbooks and magazines fill up the X60’s screen quite nicely, but what happens on the screen when it’s longer and narrower? How’s the experience then, I wonder?

    Derik,

    I’m actually liking how data displays on the WXGA resolution in portrait mode better than I thought I would. I still miss a higher res screen in landscape mode though.
