Lenovo LePad Shows Up at FCC as the Skylight Slate


The 10.1-inch Lenovo LePad tablet has been talked about for quite some time now, word on when it’s US release might happen has been scant. It looks like it is sooner than ever now that the tablet has reached the FCC, though under a different name. Carrying the same 1280×800 resolution screen, Snapdragon processor, Android 2.2, and 1GB of RAM, it is apparent the so-called Lenovo Skylight slate is the LePad we saw back at CES in January.

Again, no information is available on when we might see the Skylight hit US shores, but we hope that Android 2.2 gets bumped up to Honeycomb by that time. If not, the new tablet from Lenovo might come as too little, too late.

  1. looks like 1280×800 and 1 gig ram is the standard for 10″ tablets

  2. It had fast switching between windows 7 and Android at CES…is this the hybrid with keyboard docking station or just a slate stand alone?

  3. Yeah cuz really I only care for the dual boot with I keyboard!

  4. I think sam is right. This looks a lot more like the Transformer tablet than the LePad.

    The documentation calls out a “Tablet Dock Connector” and the package details mentions a tablet dock connector to USB cable.

  5. I’m an idiot, I’m confusing Asus and Lenovo’s tablets.

    The way I understood the LePad was it would plug into the U1 to offer the dual-boot. This looks like the LePad portion.
