Love your ThinkPad Tablet 2, but wish you could quickly attach a monitor, mouse, keyboard, and more for long work sessions? Look no further as the ThinkPad Tablet 2 Dock is your tablet’s new best friend. The ThinkPad Tablet 2 Dock allows you to easily click in your tablet and gain access to multiple USB ports, high speed Ethernet, HDMI, and turbo charging.

Plug in an extra monitor, wireless mouse, and wireless keyboard to the dock and you are set for hours of work. The ThinkPad Tablet 2 Dock makes it easy to work at your desk and then easily grab your tablet to rush down to the conference room.
If you aren’t ready to give up a physical keyboard then why should you? The ThinkPad Tablet 2 Bluetooth keyboard is a great companion for those users who need that tactile feedback. The ThinkPad Tablet 2 Bluetooth Keyboard has the same comfort level and supreme engineering as any Lenovo ThinkPad keyboard. What would a ThinkPad keyboard be without a TrackPoint; the ThinkPad Tablet 2 Bluetooth keyboard has a high tech optical TrackPoint with left, right, and scroll buttons. This extremely comfortable keyboard works using Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity and can be charged via any Micro USB connector. With a thirty day battery life your business work never needs to stop, simply pop up the stand, place your tablet, and start typing.
