IdeaPad U1 coming to China this winter, priced

The Lenovo LePad tablet and its accompanying IdeaPad U1 Hybrid dock have been confirmed to arrive on the market in 2011, and the specs are now finalized. Introduced at last year's CES, this year's CES was host to the announcement. The slate-like, 10.1-inch LePad portion of the device runs on Android 2.2 and uses a 1.3GHz Snapdragon processor, while plugging in the tablet to the dock endows it with Windows 7 OS capabilities and processing power from an Intel CULV processor.

A front-facing camera is integrated. The initial shipments will not support Flash Player 10.1, but the functionality will eventually be added. The SSD size has been doubled, from 16GB to 32GB.

The LePad weighs less than 2lbs and is about a half-inch thick. Its battery life is rated at up to eight hours. It will be available in scarlet and white with touches of either brown or black leather substitute.

The tablet will first arrive in China sometime this winter. The LePad itself will cost the equivalent of about $520 there, with the whole system priced at about $1,300.
