Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet breaks cover: Honeycomb slate with Keyboard Dock

Details of a new Lenovo Android 3.0 Honeycomb slate have emerged, a stylus-toting 10.1-inch ThinkPad Tablet with an ASUS Eee Pad Transformer-style keyboard dock, an IPS display and NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chipset. The ThinkPad Tablet is scheduled for a Q3 2011 launch, so the leaked presentation acquired by This is my next suggests, complete with a "Lenovo Family UI" customizing the interface and which apps are preloaded.

T-Mobile G-Slate Review

T-Mobile G-Slate Review

2011 may be the year of the tablet, but so far only one Android 3.0 Honeycomb (review) example has managed to reach the market. Motorola's XOOM was criticized for launching perhaps before Honeycomb was quite ready; now the T-Mobile G-Slate by LG is making its own play, with the dual hope that 3D photography and an 8.9-inch screen will be enough to carve a niche against the iPad 2. Is Honeycomb's second hurrah the cry of victory or a dying gasp? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut to find out.

Hannspree SN10T1 tablet hands-on [Video]

Hannspree's Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet, the SN10T3, isn't expected to hit the market until Q3 2011, but the company had the freshly-released SN10T1 on show here at IFA 2011 today. Based around a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen and NVIDIA's Tegra 2 processor, the slate may run Android 2.2 Froyo but it's well hidden under a custom UI. Still, that decision has left the SN10T1 missing a few key features which may take some of the shine off of its low price tag.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer vs Acer Iconia Tab A500

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer vs Acer Iconia Tab A500

Motorola's XOOM had its chance to sweep the Android 3.0 Honeycomb market; now the low-cost slates from Taiwan are here to steal its thunder.
