Lenovo launching Android-running LePad tablet in June

Lenovo is one of the largest PC manufacturers in the world. It’s in the top five actually. And now they’ve confirmed an Android tablet, bound for world-wide availability, is coming in June.

The Lenovo LePad

It will bear the name LePad and, sadly, it isn’t anything to lose sleep over. It will feature a 1.2GHz processor of the Qualcomm Snapdragon lineage, Android 2.2 Froyo and a 10.1-inch touchscreen.

Expected price for the upcoming device is said to be in the $399-$449 range, which probably is inexpensive for that hardware.

We hope Lenovo’s first attempt at a Europe-bound tablet to be followed up with the much-needed software update to Honeycomb to make the LePad a truly competitive product. Android Froyo just doesn’t cut it anymore, when it comes to tablets.
