Lenovo IdeaPad UI in Line at FCC

July 11, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

At last, months after its show off at CES, Lenovo’s IdeaPad UI has reached the FCC doorstep. It shouldn’t, hopefully, be long before the hybrid tablet and netbook combo gains the clearance into the States.

The tablet when docked looks like any regular laptop. You can find, under the lid, a chiclet-style keyboard surrounded by a fun rubberized palm-rest with integrated touchpad. When you take it out of the dock, it switches to Lenovo’s Skylight UI in one fluid process.

The IdeaPad uses Android with Lenovo’s custom interface and a 1.3GHz Snapdragon processor under the hood. We did give you a glimpse of its specs in January, but if you don’t remember, here’s a recap.

The slate was said to feature a 10.1-inch capacitive display with a resolution of 1280×800. It was said to pack 2GB of RAM, with 32GB of storage (SSD), and was speculated to support both USB and microSD and a battery with 6 hours of juice.

Based on a confidentiality letter attached to the filing, hits to a possible release date could be found (November 22). But this could be a vague reference and need not necessarily be the launch date. But we can expect the slate to reach the market somewhere around that time.
