Lenovo will apparently roll out their LePad PCs in the first quarter of the year, and the rest of the world will follow suit from June onwards. According to company COO Rory Read, he thinks that tablet PCs will account for 10% to 15% of the global notebook market, and achieving that figure within the next 1 to 2 years. Lenovo’s total notebook shipments as well as the ratio of tablet PCs will be the the same to that of other global notebook shipments, although there were no official figures from LEnovo just yet – but we do know that Lenovo intends to gun for the highest ranking position of the segment in the China market. In other news, Lenovo is also tipped to roll out their IdeaPad U1Hybrid model this summer, starting from the world’s second largest economy (that’s China) before the rest of the world.
