Up Close and Personal with the Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid with LePad Slate
      #39648 - 01/10/11 08:28 PM

Lenovo showed off its IdeaPad U1 hybrid with LePad slate at CES 2011. We got to play with it and took some photos. The IdeaPad U1 with LePad slate is a unique two-in-one device: when you take the tablet off its dock it's a 10.1" Android tablet with Android apps and UI, and when you dock the tablet with the keyboard base it becomes a full Windows 7 computer.

We played with the IdeaPad U1 at CES, and found the switching of the two OS's was instantenouse as you dock and undock the tablet. The LePad comes in two colors, scarlet and white. The U1 Android tablet was running Android 2.2 with its own UI and many Android apps in Chinese including music player, ebook reader and more. The U1 base runs on an Intel CULV processor, and has a full sized keyboard and Windows 7 Home Premium OS.

The Lenovo IdeaPad U1 will ship in China in Q1 2011 for about $520 US (3,499RMB), but no word yet when it will be available in the US.

Here are some photos of the IdeaPad U1:
