Lenovo has a strong name in China, and hasn’t faced much competition from Apple there. In fact, they’ve even mocked Apple about “wasting” their presence in the enormous market. However, as the iPad is set for release in Hong Kong this Friday – and is expected to be fully available in China soon – Lenovo plans on stepping up their game and challenging Apple with an Android tablet.
Other than the fact the tablet (the “LePad”) will run Android, no real specs have been revealed. However, it was confirmed that the tablet would launch exclusively in China at first, and good sales could prompt releases in other markets. No word on dates, though – and after the delays of the SkyLight and U1 tablet/netbook hybrids, we might have to wait quite some time before seeing anything from Lenovo like an actual release.
