Well, I'm glad I got one before they were discontinued. It is a very polite splash screen though.
Wonder if its going to be replaced?
RIP Thinkpad Gen 2

Man, can't wait until they make a Helix 3. With trackpoint. C'mon with new processors like Core M and Kaby Lake, it's gotta happen someday, right?
Right? : (
As far as I know, ThinkPad Tablet is more or less dead. Slate Tablets in general are in decline. I even think the second gen X1 Tablet might be the last of its kind, due to lacking sales. Look at how Lenovo treats it compared with the Miix line, the Miix 720 is cheaper while having better specs.
I know there was originally a second gen X1 Tablet planned with full U-Series Core i-CPUs. This was not announced, no sign of it, so my guess it that they canceled it after all.
And yet there goes Samsung releasing the Galaxy Book 10.6 and 12 in. tablets, 3:2 screen ratio, Wacom EMR, Verizon WWAN and 10 hr battery (promised).
I suspect as long as Apple keeps throwing big screen iPads out there, there'll be some Wintel device offered up. What was Don Henley's line from "Learn to Be Still":
But the flock cries out for another;
And they keep answering that bell;
One more starry eyed messiah;
Meets a violent farewell;
If anything happens to this TP10-2dGen, I could probably live with the Galaxy Book 10.6 as the companion solution.
Funny, after using my S3 as a primary notebook, the Samsung Core M would make it a near perfect replacement. My GN5 has been pressed into the role of companion device to the S3.
Well, Lenovo is also still doing some Windows Tablets, but they are not pure Slate tablets, they are all Hybrids. They just introduced a new 10,1" Atom powered Tablet, the Miix 320. They also of course have the Miix 720 in the 12" size.
I was talking about Think tablets, which are more business focused. Apparently did not sell particularly well.
