    Has anyone tried ICS yet?

    Presently the digitizer on the TPT works via custom software. ICS is supposed to include native support for digitizetrs so I can see where replacing the software from Lenovo's to Google's version ( no aspersion mean, but it is a change of software ) can cause problems with the pen. Has...

    Thinkpad Ghosts and Remove It

    Just got the Thinkpad 1838. Love it. On the apps page there are the ghost outlines on either side. I cannot find out what they are. Secondly, when I touch an app to delete from the page, the 'remove' it button will work only some of the time. Ideas/Explanations? Thanks

    Keyboard Folio modification 2 - USB port-hub addon

    As mentioned in my Keyboard Folio modification 1 - Keyboard Pads thread, when the Thinkpad tablet is inserted into the Keyboard Folio, one loses the use of the full size USB port. While the placement of the USB connector is in a way a smart one since it helps in holding the tablet in...

    Keyboard Folio modification 1 - Keyboard Pads

    As mention in my Keyboard Folio review, the Keyboard Folio is so flexible due to its open (on the side) design, that the plastic flap that holds the tablet in place can either be resting on the keyboards touch/mouse buttons or fall totally off the keyboard itself. This can possibly cause the...

    $20 Fujistsu Stylus with Thinkpad Tablet

    I just wanted to share a tip I ran across while setting up a thinkpad tablet to demo. N-Trig styluses all seem to be cross compatible, meaning you can use a pen from a Fujitsu Q550 or HTC Flyer etc with the Thinkpad tablet. I bought a Fujitsu stylus with mine because it was < $25 shipped, and...
