Remember the Lenovo LePad? Well there has been a flurry of high profile tablet launches of late, so much its becoming tough to keep track of each of them. Plus there are many more waiting in the wings. Also, with increased competition, the rules become simple – its only the cutting edge that survives while those that has been promising yesterday might have it tough tomorrow. And as it has always been, its only the tough that survives.
Case in point, the LePad from Lenovo. Not too long ago it used to be one of the most eagerly awaited tablet concepts. But it runs the risk of being a case of too late too little. The LePad is still in the realm of Android 2.2 Froyo when everyone else has started to get used to Honeycomb. Behind the scenes, its going to be a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor while on top of it is a 10.1 inch display. The relatively affordable price tag $399 to $449 is a saving grace though.
Meanwhile, CEO of China’s biggest PC maker, Yang Yuanqing has confirmed the LePad will be in the market by this March itself, refuting rumors the Lenovo tablet might be in for some delay.
