Lenovo Skylight Slate lands at FCC offices and it could be Android 2.2 or Android 3.0 tablet.Lenovo Skylight Slate have a 1280×800 resolution screen, Snapdragon processor, Android 2.2 and 1GB of RAM, it is apparent the so-called Lenovo Skylight slate is the LePad we saw back at CES in January……..
Lenovo Skylight Slate has made an appearance at the FCC offices. A slate is the industry term for tables with a touchscreen but no physical keyboard, the term is most often tied to Windows based tablets. Although the only tablet that Lenovo has been showing that can be called a slate is the LePad Android tablet.It looks like it will be called the Lenovo Skylight slate when it goes on sale in the US. That’s probably a good thing because while LePad might make sense in Chinese, in English it just seems like an odd name for a tablet.
Lenovo LePad is an interesting device because by itself it’s just the LePad a 10.1-inch Android 2.2 tablet powered by a 1.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. But when the LePad is docked on it’s keyboard docking base it transforms into the U1 hybrid and starts running Windows 7 Home Premium and starts to be powered by an Intel CULV processor.The tablet will have WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities and a multitouch display. It has stereo speakers, a built-in mic, and a 3-axis gravity sensor with compass support. The tablet has 1GB of RAM and a 27Whr lithium polymer battery.
Lenovo has already launched the LePad in China but release in the US and other global markets in June.The LePad when it’s hits the US could in fact change names to Skylight Slate, but Lenovo hasn’t made any official mention of such a move or of a product named “Skylight Slate” for that matter either.The Skylight slate looks pretty much identical to the version the company was showing off at CES in January.
