All those rumors about a Lenovo ThinkPad netbook just got a little more credence. ThinkPadToday appears to have received confirmation from someone that the first ThinkPad netbook, which will be called the X100e, will be out January 5, 2010. The slogan for this new product is purported to be, “Entry level ultra portable, the first ThinkPad of its size”.

No details about the hardware on the X100e have been released yet, and Lenovo still has yet to confirm or deny the rumors. As of right now, it's still entirely possible this product does not exist. However, the evidence against that is increasingly heavily stacked. Several images have leaked out, and rumors about the new netbooks continue to sprout like wildflowers.

ThinkPadToday speculates that Lenovo's first netbook could pack the Nvidia Ion HD graphics platform. That would certainly be one way of differentiating their product from the herd. If Lenovo does have a ThinkPad netbook planned I can't imagine they want it to be a dull, standard netbook with yet another old Atom processor. January 5th isn't too far away, so we should know for certain very soon.
