These controls are accessible even with the cover attached.
USB 3.0 Micro-B; volume up/down; power
There is a reset pinhole between the volume and power controls.
The audio jack (not pictured) is on the bottom of the Tablet 8 in standard portrait orientation.
QuickShot Cover (optional)
Lenovo is offering a $35 smart cover accessory, the QuickShot Cover. It is a cover typical for tablets, with some notable exceptions.
The cover doesn't roll up like those for other tablets, it is rigid. It has a rubber coating on one side to support using the tablet in a tent mode for hands-free use.
With the cover folded behind the Tablet 8, there is a corner that can be turned down to expose the rear 8MP camera. This action automatically fires up the camera app, allowing photos and video to be shot.
The QuickShot Cover attaches to the ThinkPad Tablet 8 magnetically, and is easy to pop on and off.
QuickShot Cover tent mode
This is the tent mode mentioned in the previous slide. It works well and in testing, the cover will also support the ThinkPad Tablet 8 in portrait with care.
