Both Android 3.x tablets will have a 10-inch screen. The ThinkPad tablet comes with a stylus for signature capture. The price range for the Lenovo tablets is $450-$900, depending on configuration. The details on both Lenovo tablets are still very thin. The source for the Lenovo Tablet news is this interview of Lenovo COO Rory Read with DowJones, viaSlashGear.
In April some details of the ThinkPad Tablet leaked already. What we know since then is that Lenovo is using a Tegra 2processor and 16, 32 and 64 GB storage options. The ThinkPad will be microSD compatible and support 3G/4G connectivity. There's also mini-HDMI out and USB 2.0. The screen is a 10.1" multitouch IPS display.
Lenovo is also planning to release a Windows tablet end of the year still running Windows 7. Windows 8, which is much better suited for tablets is expected to be released some when in 2012.

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.
