First Look: Lenovo IdeaPad Slate Has Oak Trail Inside, Dual Personalities

Straight from the briefing room, Lenovo has just announced the IdeaPad Slate, their first windows 7 consumer slate. The base specs include an Oak Trail CPU and comes with a 10-inch 1280 by 800 resolution display.

One interesting thing about this slate is that it’s optimized for both touch input as well as for pen input for note taking and other pen related tasks. In addition, Lenovo has created a customize UI on top of Windows 7 which gives the user access to two tabs: one for work and one for play. In the play tab you can expect things like music and video, while in the work tab you can find programs like Microsoft Outlook.

At this time, we were unable to obtain any pricing or availability information, but stayed tuned for a video hands-on
