Also allegedly runs nVidia multi-core Tegra 3 processor.
With the tablet market being as saturated as it is and the launch of Kindle Fire bringing in new appeal, most smaller brands in the market are backing away. At GITEX this year, I saw a Lenovo tablet somewhere at the end of the stall and it ooked nothing special to spend money on. I guess the company is out to change the game, because there’s a rumor floating around that they’re planning a powerful new tablet.
Engadget reports with an apparently reliable source that the company is planning to release a tablet by the end of 2011 with a 10.1 inch screen which runs Android 4.0 (or Ice Cream Sandwich) as well as packs the nVidia multi-core Tegra 3 processor with a clock speed of 1.6 Ghz and 2GB of RAM. Will it be as competitively priced as the Kindle Fire? Probably not, and if priced the same as the iPad, that could be one reason that it would fail in the market. There’s no point fighting the unbashed market leader without offering something extremely different.
There’s no confirmation for this of course, but sounds pretty reasonable that Lenovo would want to make a revamped entry into the market.
