Lenovo has announced a family of tablets that’ll be available in the next few months. There’ll be the consumer-focussed IdeaPad Tablet K1, the business-targeted ThinkPad Tablet and the IdeaPad Tablet P1 for home and office use.
The IdeaPad Tablet K1 and ThinkPad Tablets will run Android ‘Honeycomb’ v3.1, while the Tablet P1 will use Microsoft Windows 7.
Liu Jun, senior vice president and president of Lenovo’s Mobile Internet Digital Home business group, said “Tablets are extremely personal technology devices. That’s why we’ve created a family of tablets that has something for everyone, including entertainment-friendly features and content for consumers, or business-friendly features to enhance productivity for professionals as well as security and manageability for IT managers. So whether it’s the IdeaPad for entertainment or the ThinkPad for business, we have listened to our customers and are delivering Android-powered tablets designed to meet their particular needs.”
Lenovo’s tablets will use NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processors and will be equipped with WiFi; a 3G version of the ThinkPad is also planned. US availability is expected in August, with worldwide availability from Q3 2011.
