Lenovo LePad tablet due worldwide in June

Lenovo has confirmed that its LePad Android tablet will see a worldwide launch in June 2011, though the Chinese market wil get the Android 2.2 Froyo device several months earlier. Based around a 10.1-inch slate that can dock into a removable keyboard section, the LePad was officially announced back at CES 2011 but owes its roots to the IdeaPad U1 Hybrid.

What's still unclear is the pricing for the dockable slate. Back at CES, a roughly $339 to $449 tag was tipped from the company, though there's no official figures available yet. Inside is a 1.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor driving the 1280 x 800 display, Lenovo isn't talking about how much the base section will cost or, indeed, whether a Honeycomb update is on the cards.
