Lenovo Delays Their Android Tablet for Honeycomb


lenovo-logo-jan09 (1)

Yet another manufacturer is delaying their Android tablet plans in favor of a more primed version of the operating system as Lenovo has announced they have no plans to release a slate device in the US until sometime in 2011. Word is that the company is holding out for the Honeycomb iteration of Android, a sentiment that echoes a report from yesterday stating that HTC has also delayed their tablet plans.

It has been suggested that Motorola has been given priority for Android Gingerbread. In much the same way that the Moto Droid was the only device to receive Android 2.0, which was quickly followed up with the launch of Android 2.1, it could be that Gingerbread will be featured exclusively on whatever tablet (or tablets) Moto produces while a 3.x version dubbed Honeycomb will follow shortly and come to other devices.

One thing is certain: we won’t be getting a LePad in the US anytime soon.

  1. It looks like 2011 is the year for Android tablets.

  2. This is good. They shouldn’t rush this stuff about, they need time to play with it and see what will integrate nicely. Lenovo should do a cracking job, their laptops are ace because they’re just no-frills plain machines.

  3. If the upcomming LePad is made in the same high quality and stability as IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad laptops has been for ages, it could be my next touch system gadget.
    But it might be some time before it arrives in Denmark. :-)

  4. The difference is that 2.0 and 2.1 were both ECLAIR ..

    I think Gingerbread will be a smartphone update while Honeycomb will be for tablets

  5. we wait for new version too

  6. Any news in this matter yet? :-)

    Would be nice if there was a timeline from Lenovo.
