Lenovo bringing two tablets to CES 2011: U1 Hybrid resurrected?

Lenovo might have outed its new ThinkPad line-up – including the endearingly slim ThinkPad X120e – ahead of CES 2011 this week, but the company is apparently still saving some surprises for the show. Lenovo global marketing exec Nick Reynolds confirmed to PCWorld that two consumer tablets are expected to go on show at CES later this week, with "multiple price points".

The exact nature of the tablets is unknown at this stage, though we do have some past Lenovo tablet work to go by. The Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid was first shown off back at CES 2010, a netbook-style form-factor with a removable touchscreen slate screen section. Last we heard, Lenovo was planning to release the slate element as the LePad, but we'll have to wait until later this week to find out full details.
