Lenovo: No tablets until Summer 2011

Posted on Wednesday, October 20 2010 @ 15:35:15 CEST by

Lenovo announced it will not rush into the tablet market. The Chinese PC maker said Windows 7 isn't right for tablets because this operating system is designed for a mouse and keyboard, and Android-based tablets from Lenovo won't arrive until summer 2011 because the company wants to wait for the launch of Honeycomb.
The news on the tablet side, however, is somewhat more promising for those hoping for a Lenovo-banded "Le Pad" in the U.S. Read said Lenovo may introduce tablet solutions for its commercial and consumer business next year, possibly by the summer, or four months after the official release of the tablet-friendly Android operating system. Read cautioned, however, that that time-frame is contingent on the next major Android release, code-named "Honeycomb". Honeycomb is still Android but a version specifically designed for tablet computers. If Android's Honeycomb slips, it's possible that timeline could change, as well.

What Lenovo apparently won't do is release a tablet running Android 2.2 (Code-named "Froyo"). "I don't believe 'Foryo' is the right base to have a fully functioning pad," said Read.
