Lenovo just released this quick video, showing their upcoming LePad slate and its docking IdeaPad U1 hybrid base in action. From what we see here, the customized Android interface is fast and fluid, as is the switch from slate-only LePad to the IdeaPad U1 base running Windows 7 on an Intel CULV processor.
Officially announced in final form at CES 2010, the LePad is a 10.1-inch slate running Google’s Android 2.2 operating system. It is powered by a 1.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and will be available in China soon for around $520 USD, with a U.S. debut expected later this year.
The IdeaPad U1 is the optional docking base that allows the LePad to snap in and seamlessly switch from the Snapdragon/Android slate to a standard notebook running Windows 7 with an Intel CULV processor. The IdeaPad U1 with LePad included is expected to run about $1300 USD.
