Lenovo today announced a new feature in an updates series of its Thinkpad X60 tablet PC.

The devices are equipped with "Active Rotate," sensors that can recognize a motion of the laptop and automatically adjust the screen view to the user (landscape or portrait view). According to the manufacturer, a redesigned navigational dial lets users move in four directions.

There is also a new 12" outdoor, anti-reflective screen, which comes with a touchscreen feature that allows users to drag the cursor across the display using a finger.

The X60 tablet PC is priced from $1800 and will begin shipping in early December.
