Lenovo U1 Hybrid Slate Hits CES 2011: Vaporware No More?
 
 

The Lenovo U1 hybrid slate was a huge hit at CES 2010. But delay after delay led many to speculate that it would end up as nothing but vaporware. We've heard little from Lenovo on the matter since. But today, the company sent out press releases announcing the availability of the U1 in Q1 2011. China is one confirmed region, and I'm waiting to hear back from Lenovo on when we'll see this baby hit the US.

The LePad slate brags 8 hours of battery life, a 10.1" touchscreen, Android 2.2, 1 GB of DDR3 RAM and a 1.3 GHz Snapdragon processor. It has a 2 MP camera on front and a SIM slot. Storage options are 16 GB and 32 GB. You can choose from white or scarlet, and brown or black leather "texture". The laptop base packs a 1.2 GHz dual-core CULV processor, 2 GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 320 GB HDD.

Expect the slate alone to cost $520, while the slate+laptop should set you back $1300. I'll be meeting with a Lenovo rep tomorrow, so check back for a hands-on video and my impressions then.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
