Lenovo planning a 23″ tablet for this year

“We think that there is potential for it.”


While we painfully figure out if a 7″, 8″ or a 10″ tablet is good for us, Lenovo is throwing us a doosra by aiming to release a 23″ tablet by the end of this year.

A twenty three tablet, yes.

While we will be quick to classify it has a all-in-one PC with a marketing spin, it will largely be just that but with a more tablet-y feel to it, apparently.

“We think that there is potential for a 23-inch tablet,” said Cai. “We’d have to take care of battery life and we are working to get the weight down.

“It’s obviously not for full mobility use, but it could be moved from room to room in the house and used with a full keyboard, or as a television.Or you could lay it on a table top and use it for family games.

“We’re hoping that we can launch it later this year.”

As absurd as it sounds, we think it’s a pretty unique idea if they do manage to take care of the issues they have mentioned. In fact, if the idea truly works out, it could be the pocket-friendly Microsoft Surface we always wanted!
