As time moves on, this Android tablet craze will prove to get just as crowded as the handset market currently is. Lenovo’s the latest in a string of manufacturers looking to make a tablet with Android on board. Liu Jun, the senior vice president (and president, somehow) for the company’s Consumer Business Group, announced that they’d be bringing the Lenovo LePad to go directly up against the iPad (as if the name didn’t already give that small factoid away).
They’ll be focusing on their home turf – China – to start before they target other markets. While Lenovo isn’t heavily recognized as a major player in the mobile devices game, they’ve proved that they can make some outstanding hardware (I still do want the Lenovo LePhone) and the custom software they’ve developed for the LePhone isn’t half bad. We’ll just have to see if all that will be able to translate nicely into a bigger package.
