  1. Lenovo's LePad/IdeaPad U1 was among the more interesting tablets revealed during last year's CES, and after a series of delays, the company is almost ready to launch the device. Set to ship sometime in the first quarter of 2011 for $520, the 10.1-inch LePad is a standalone slate that features Lenovo's Android-based LeOS, a 1.3GHz Qualcoom Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of flash storage, a 2MP camera, as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G connectivity.

    It is, in the whole scheme of things. The "dock" is essentially a laptop that uses the LePad as it's display.

    Why make it so expensive if they know it won't sell? People might as well buy a MacBook Pro or any other Net/Notebook for that matter...
  5. This should be a big hit in the business market (a laptop with a removable tablet for meetings and travel) but consumers would be better off buying a normal laptop.
  6. Based on the offering and what's available in the market, it's a poor packaging. Lenovo needs to re-think on their strategy and consider giving the option for the consumer to choose whether they want to buy the tablet or tablet + docking.
  7. I can't wait to get one! Having a laptop that I can use in my hotel room and a tablet to use in meetings is just what I need. What is hard to understand about a niche market?
