Thinkpad 8 dual monitor output

All the video coverage as CES shows the tablet outputting to two external monitors, presumably while also charging. The manual shows nothing about how to do this. Can anyone shed any light? Does it require an external accessory or dock? If so, what?

Thanks

Re: Thinkpad 8 dual monitor output

Last I checked, the Tablet 8 is going to be like other 8" Windows tablets, and rely on USB 3.0 docking stations for display output. There are a bunch of USB 3.0 docks with multiple monitor outputs. Pluggable has one that can drive four monitors off a single USB 3 port.
