Lenovo's Windows 8 ThinkPad Tablet 2 will be hitting the streets on November 16. 

Are you unimpressed by Apple's iPad mini and small-screen Android tablets? Well, Lenovo's long-awaited ThinkPad Tablet 2 will be hitting the holiday streets on November 16 - featuring a 10-inch screen and an Intel Atom Clover Trail processor.

We've previously discussed this tricked-out tablet and knew it would be rolling out in November, although an exact launch date was still up in the air. Reports indicate the tablet will be priced at $799, which includes a Bluetooth keyboard accessory. The price for the stand-alone tablet? $649.

Specifications include a 10-inch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768 along with a dual digitizer that allows users to write and interact directly on the screen using either a finger or a pressure sensitive digital pen. The tablet also boasts a micro HDMI output, a full-size USB port for accessories and 3G/4G connectivity options.

Additional features? An 8 megapixel rear camera along with two megapixel front facing camera.

As noted above, the operating system is Windows 8, as the tablet seems to be targeted at business customers and power users. Indeed, there are a number of enterprise-focused security features, including a fingerprint scanner.
