    Incidentally guys, there's a shot of somebody doodling in a partially-folded position:

    So we know at least pen input doesn't get software deactivated out of slate mode. Well done, Lenovo! :thumbsup:

    True, but if they do that in the first iteration of the product, what would be left for the second and subsequent ones?

    They need to find a way to attach the keyboard onto the outside so it doesnt have to have its own case. Put the pen in the hole and let me know what the damage will be.

    BtW @Tablet Nostradamus ... Love the name. It's fitting for this crowd. Looking forward to your predictions.

    Just remember, Nostradamus only looks good after the folks at the History Channel connect the dots in retrospect.

    Yes. I'm hoping his predictions are less cryptic here.:vbbiggrin:

    If he keeps it under 100 quatrains we should be good...

    The year 2020 seven month,
    From the sky will come a great foldable OLED tablet with internal silo:
    To bring back to life the great Windows TabletPC with Wacom EMR,
    Before after Lenovo to reign by good luck

    (Century XI, Quatrain 23)​

    "That's just stupid. 'Internal silo?' I'd love to know how you emphasize 'in' in 'Internal silo.' Impossible! Meaningless!"

    @Tablet Nostradamus

    Bravo sir, bravo. Well played! (And you got it right except it will be Wacom AES like the C930).

    Thanks, @dstrauss! I learned by watching you guys!

    About the AES - the foldable also doesn't have an internal silo. I believe in self-fulfilling prophecies...

    They have a year to work out the kinks.

    While I have Lenovo's ear, let's put a headphone jack on it too. And for the kickstand, how about a hinged flap on each side that lock together when the tablet is flat, so it's like the Surface kickstand? It would look kinda like two NKMOS Airstands, one on each side. It would look janky, but I'm sure some well-paid designer can do the concept justice.

    How about this - instead of locking, they are 90 degrees to each other, giving you a stand in portrait and landscape modes...
