Lenovo debuted a trio of tablets last week, with the IdeaPad K1 being directed to consumers, while the ThinkPad is aimed at business folks. This unit was supposed to be coming to the USA on August 2nd, according to rumors. Now that’s changed and the slate has been delayed to August 23.

Priced at $479, the tablet is available in a 16GB version without the digitizer pen. With the pen, you’ll pay $509 for it and if you want more storage, the 32GB version will set you back $59. There’s also an accessory to purchase, an optional keyboard portofolio going for $99. These are all WiFi models, with the 3G ones being launched in the following months.

The ThinkPad slates will reach the international market in September, packing a 10.1 inch 1280 x 800 display, dual core Tegra 2 1GHz CPU and mini HDMI port. Will you buy one?
