Lenovo's next great tablet computer will br priced at a whopping $1300. But even though it's more than twice as expensive as an iPad, this ain't your momma's tablet.
Lenovo has rebooted its hybrid tablet/docking station with a new name and specs. The standalone tablet, re-dubbed "LePad," now runs either Google Android 2.1 or 2.2 (Froyo) instead of the custom Linux-based Skylight OS.
When we're not talking about 4G or 3D at next month's CES, one of the major focuses will be the multimedia tablet market, an area that didn't really even exist until the launch of the iPad.
The tablet train is now officially rolling. Earlier this week, details came out about HP's WebOS-based multimedia tablet as well as an Android tablet from Asus, and now Lenovo is joining in the fray.
