Honeycomb-enriched Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet comes with Tegra 2, plus optional stylus and keyboard booklet.

Looks like T-Mobile and Motorola won’t be the only one having a Honeycomb-powered tablet, at least until July. Apparently, a PowerPoint presentation was leaked this past weekend unveiling the company’s latest contraption — the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet. And it’s all got the juicy power of Honeycomb and NVIDIA Tegra 2. Plus, it’s got a couple more surprises under its sleeve.

The tablet is slated for a July release with a price tag of $499.

More details after the jump.

T-Mobile delivers a suave and reliable smartphone under the G2x loaded with multimedia features and then some.

Are you still on your quest to find the perfect smartphone for your needs? Well then maybe your long search has finally come to a halt (until the next best thing comes in a month or two) as T-Mobile presents the G2x phone. A phone that provides a great combination of elegant style and amazing performance thanks to NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 1GHz chip.

Originally branded as the LG Optimus 2X, which was released last year, T-Mobile slapped in their logo for US distribution and added the phone to their G phone series. Now tagged as the T-Mobile G2x, this is the first time the company utilized a non-HTC phone in the G line-up, and already the LG phone is making waves with its incredible and snappy speed that can possibly outperform any other HTC phones in T-Mobile’s arsenal.

Honeycomb Needs Dual Core and 1280×720 Screen To Work

Written on January 04, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

It seems like the hot Honeycomb may only be available to high-end tablets as it makes the grand debut this year.

According to Bobby Cha, managing director of Korean electronics firm Enspert, Google’s new Android Honeycomb tablet OS will require a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 and perhaps a 1280x720p screen in order to work properly. This poses a problem to several Android OS driven tablets available in the market as they lack the necessary processors. As of the moment, only Nvidia’s Tegra 2 platform is capable to include a Cortex-A9, but manufacturers express optimism that they’ll catch up with the new processor architecture this 2011.

Motorola already gave a teaser that their new line of tablets will include the Honeycomb OS. Even though no statement has been released on its hardware details, we’re pretty much sure they have all the right stuff to run the OS if they’re making a huge deal about their new product.

We can only look forward to CES 2011 this week for more details on the matter. But in the meantime, enjoy the Froyo and Gingerbread OS if you’re tablets are only carrying a single core processor.
