Chinese manufacturer Lenovo has announced that it’ll soon throw not one, not two, but three new tablets into the already-crowded market.
In a press release straight from its base in North Carolina, the manufacturer has unveiled the IdeaPad Tablet K1, the ThinkPad Tablet, and the IdeaPad Tablet P1.
All three will feature 10.1in displays, so how does Lenovo differentiate the tablets? The IdeaPad Tablet K1 is for consumers, the ThinkPad Tablet (which has an optional digitizer pen) is aimed at business customers, and the IdeaPad Tablet P1 is for home and office use. Got that?
Furthermore, the IdeaPad Tablet K1 and ThinkPad Tablet will rock Honeycomb (Android 3.1) and dual-core Tegra 2 processors. The IdeaPad Tablet P1, on the other hand, will run Windows 7 with a 1.5GHz Intel processor.
The IdeaPad Tablet K1 (er, that’s the consumer one) and the ThinkPad Tablet (the business one) (together they're the dual-core Honeycomb ones) will be “generally available worldwide” in Q3. They’ll be around $500 when they land Stateside.
The IdeaPad Tablet P1 (the “home and office” Windows 7 one) will be available in Q4, however it doesn’t appear to have been confirmed for the UK yet, being absent from Lenovo’s UK site.
