Lenovo LePad coming in December, U1 dock later

Lenovo's IdeaPad U1 Hybrid, a modular notebook that was introduced back around CES time in January, will be split up into separate products, according to Engadget. The device was said to be shelved shortly after its introduction, but now it will be produced again. The LePad tablet will be the first component of the IdeaPad U1 hybrid to see store shelves, albeit in China.

The 10.1-inch device will be put up against Apple's iPad when it launches in December in China, before being joined in January by the notebook half to produce the originally promised device.

Specs on either device are not available, but originally, it was believed to sport an ARM CPU for the tablet portion, which had an 11.6-inch screen at the introduction at CES. It was also said to use a Skylight Linux OS, but since has switched to Android. The tablet would also have a 16GB flash drive, 512MB of RAM, and graphics processing integrated into the Snapdragon chip. The notebook portion would add Windows 7 and an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU along with 4GB of DDR3 RAM, with storage options that include a 128GB SSD.

    Good luck

    Its marketted as a tablet but it really is a laptop with a removable touch screen. Tell me there a mass market for laptops that don't support windows? I haven't heard of anyone successfully selling Android laptops. Good luck!
