CNET's peek at the Lenovo Windows 8 tablet

We don't know much about it and we were barely allowed to touch it, but at the Computex show in Taiwan CNET gets a brief tour of the prototype ThinkPad device.

Earlier today, we told you that Lenovo used the Computex show in Taipei, Taiwan, to show a new ThinkPad tablet running Windows 8. And now, CNET's team on the ground was able to get a closer look.

As the unannounced device is only a prototype (it doesn't event have a name yet), CNET Australia's Craig Simms wasn't able to pick it up himself, but he did get close in for some beauty shots. He reports that the 10.1-inch, 1366x768-pixel display offered bright and vibrant colors and excellent viewing angles.

Lenovo reps wouldn't reveal full specs, but we do know that the tablet runs on Intel's Clover Trail Atom processor and has an 8-megapixel camera and a flash, a front-facing 2-megapixel camera, a 3.5mm audio jack, an micro-HDMI port, an SD card slot, and a docking connector.

Check out the slideshow for a closer look. We'll report more details as they come.
