Lenovo Introduces New Tablet — The IdeaPad P1
IdeaPad P1 -- the last Lenovo tablet device to run on Windows 7.
Early today, Lenovo intros its new tablet – the IdeaPad P1 – which is specially designed for office workers. The device is a 10-inch tablet that is said to be the last product from Lenovo to run a Windows 7 system. It features finger-touch, an optional pen, and a 1.5GHz Intel chip (likely an Atom Z670). Unlike its previous Android devices, the IdeaPad P1 sports a thickness of 0.57 inches and a lighter weight of under 2Lbs.
Although the company hasn’t disclosed most of the tablet’s details, they affirmed that the IdeaPad P1 will not fully cater for home users. Instead, it will set as a good option for people who works outside their houses since they could take advantage of the device’s Flash and HD video features.
Meanwhile, Lenovo pointed out that there might be a possibility that all their products which will be produced until mid-2012, including the new IdeaPad, will be upgraded to Windows 8.
The marketing strategy of Lenovo’s new IdeaPad P1 is quite similar to the HP Slate 500’s — wherein the device is offered for businesses and office workers. Before, the tablet was said to become the toughest rival of Apple’s iPad. However, due to the lack of true touch-optimized Windows interface, the IdeaPad P1 declared itself out from the competition.View Article Source »
