Lenovo has finalized plans for their IdeaPad K1 and along with it detailed a new Android slate with the business user in mind. The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet is an Android Honeycomb device with a 1GHz dual0core Tegra 2. Shocker, I know. The tablet also features a 10.1-inch screen, 1GB of RAM, and storage options ranging from 16GB to 64GB. storage is further beefed up with 2GB of cloud storage being provided with each ThinkPad. Dual-cameras (2MP front, 5MP rear) round out the hardware. An optional keyboard folio takes advantage of the full-sized USB port found on the slate.

And what of that IdeaPad K1? It’s everything we’ve already heard: 10.1-inch display, Android 3.0, 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2. It will launch with the Lenovo App Shop (the ThinkPad will, as well), the manufacturer’s own Android apps marketplace. The IdeaPad K1 will also ship with a new build of Netflix designed to work with the tablet’s native DRM.

The Lenovo Ideapad K1 will ship at the end of the month with prices starting at $449 for the 16GB model. The ThinkPad is expected in August starting at $499.
