Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid revealed at CES 2011

[CES 2011] Lenovo’s unique hybrid tablet/laptop was recently revealed at CES 2011. What makes this device so interesting is that it works as a two completely different products depending on how you use it. The IdeaPad U1 Hybrid is made from the combination of a Lenovo LePad and a keyboard/laptop base. When separated, the Lenovo LePad functions like a regular Android tablet, but when attached to the base, it simply works as a monitor for the Windows 7-running laptop. The touch of a button switches it back to being a regular tablet. Talk about innovative! The tablet is powered by a 1.3GHz Snapdragon processor and connects to the notebook through a USB port. The IdeaPad U1 Hybrid will be launched in China later this month and the rest of the world later. The Android tablet (will be upgraded to Honeycomb for its global launch) will go for $500, while the laptop and tablet combination will fetch $1300.
