Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Next Month, ThinkPad in August; Windows 7 Slate Too in the Offing

June 15, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We know you have been fed with enough info on the possible new tablets from Lenovo. You may not have to wait too much to see them, as the company has now given the official nod for the release of the IdeaPad K1 and ThinkPad slates. The two tablets will come with a price tag in the $450-$900 range and will run Android 3.0 OS.  The devices will boast of 10 inches of screen real estate.

While the IdeaPad K1 model is expected to hit the stores by next month, the second device would be ready by August. These apart, a Windows 7 tablet will also be coming late during the current year. The company’s president Rory Read has been quoted as saying in an interview that he can now confirm at least one seven-inch tablet.

If you are wondering why the tablets are taking so much time to arrive, we hear it could be because Lenovo is engaged in making them boast of an even more splendid design that earlier thought.

Lenovo, in the meanwhile, has also confirmed that there are no plans at the moment with regard to makings smartphones for the US market. The manufacturer already has got its major Android-based device LePhone launched in China. For the time being, they do not plan to hit the markets outside before the LePhone proves itself successful in China.
