The next ThinkPad Tablet PC is rumored to be the X60t and has even appeared on a French online retail shop. The specs of the X60 include the Intel Core Duo processor which will make the ThinkPad one of the fastest Tablet PCs out there when it ships, which is rumored to be in the May time frame. Lenovo entered into an alliance with Verizon to include integrated EVDO connectivity through Verizon’s BroadbandAccess for a number of their notebook models and a quick check today on the Lenovo web site has gotten me thinking. The X60 Tablet model has still not appeared on the Lenovo web site but the various non-Tablet models of the X60 are now on the web site and every single configuration has the Verizon EVDO as an option. Could this mean that the X60 Tablet PC will be the first major Tablet PC to offer integrated 3G connectivity? I sure hope so and I have a good feeling about this possibility.
