Lenovo’s ThinkPad tablet launching later this year with Honeycomb for $499?

Lenovo said at the tail-end of last year that they weren’t planning on getting into the Android-powered tablet game until Honeycomb was out and about, ready to rock and roll. The company has kept their promise so far, as they don’t have an Android-powered tablet available, and if some recent slides are any suggestion, they won’t have one until this summer. The leak shows us that Lenovo is working on a tablet called the ThinkPad, which features a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1280×800. There’s NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 dual-core processor under the hood, and Android 3.0 running the show. The tablet will reportedly have an 8 hour battery life, and come in three variations: 16, 32 and 64GB. It’s believed that the $499 price tag is set for the 16GB version. The slide also suggests that either July or August could be the launch date for the device. And, unfortunately it doesn’t look like it’ll be a vanilla Honeycomb experience, as Lenovo will be putting their proprietary “Lenovo Family UI” atop the software.
