The company hasn't shared much in the way of specs but unofficial sources claim the slim and light device will include a webcam, SD slot for expansion, HDMI-out via an optional docking cradle, and around 10 hours of battery life. The tablet will offer optional 3G for a persistent Internet connection, and NetbookNews.de claims the company is using 2.2 Froyo for their prototype, but since the Eee Pad won't be on the market until early 2011 it will likely ship with Android 3.0.
Providing even less details Lenovo also came forward with some news about their future mobile plans. Specifically, the company will release an Android-based tablet later this year dubbed LePad, which will pair nicely with their LePhone smartphone and presumably other products under the same nomenclature. Previously, the company had showed off the Skylight smartbook and the innovative IdeaPad U1 Hybrid but delayed both products to rethink its strategy.
