Remember the LePad tablet/slate which was announced during the CES 2011? Back then, it was said that this tablet will be bundled with another Lenovo portable machine, the IdeaPad U1. After CES 2011, nothing has been about the announced hybrid machine anymore. But now, PC World learned that Lenovo is planning to make the LePad Tablet available worldwide sometime around June. This is after the tablet gets launched in China first this coming March.
Whatever happened to hybrid idea? We really don’t know. Lenovo probably learned that it would be wiser to launch a separate tablet instead that can compete with other tablets announced recently. At least minus the IdeaPad U1 netbook, Lenovo will be able to release the LePad tablet at a competitive price of $399 and $499. As a review, the Lenovo LePad features a 10.1-inch screen display, Android 2.2 OS and 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
