Lenovo Working on Tegra 3 Ice Cream Sandwich Tablet for December

We have come across plenty of tablets based on NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 CPUs and it’s time to usher in the next generation of Tegra 3 quad core processors that NVIDIA has come out with. We have already seen Asus doing it with the latest Transformer Prime, while Lenovo is also reportedly working on the same with a new tablet device that they intend to launch by the end of this year.

However, while details of the upcoming tablet are scarce at the moment, there are some details that have come to the fore thanks to an engadget tipster. Apart from the NVIDIA quad core 1.6 GHz Tegra 3 chipset that the tablet will be based on, the 10.1 inch tablet will run the latest Android 4.0 ICS. Assisting the Tegra 3 CPU will be a 2 GB 1,600MHz DDR3 RAM.

A unique aspect with the Lenovo tablet is the fingerprint scanner that the tablet will have integrated at its rear, which will also double up as an optical joystick apart from its primary role of being a biometric scanner. Also, adorning the rear will be a camera with a LED Flash, though it’s not known as of now what the resolution will be. There will also be an USB port, and the rear of the tablet will also benefit from the “Special Fusion-Skin Body,” the details of which form another missing piece of the puzzle so far.

Other aspects that are also anybody’s guess right now are the tablet’s price and exact release dates, though the image points out to a tablet that’s a lot slimmer than its previous tablet PCs.
