Lenovo Android tablet leaks

Details of this are thin on the ground, but it looks like Lenovo is joining Samsung in pushing a small tablet device/large smartphone with what's being described as the Lenovo IdeaTab.

The dual-core handset was pictured in isolation, those snaps being sent to Engadget, but without much in the way of a specification. But in its native China, the mini tablet will be marketed under the name LePad, with the IdeaTab used for the rest of the world. Which obviously includes us.

The photos show a micro USB port, HDMI output, a front-facing camera and presumably three capacitive buttons, which could mean it will not be launching with Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich. The plot thickens. Another thing that couldn't be confirmed is whether this will do voice calls. If it does, it will certainly pitch the device up against the Samsung Galaxy Note, which got a great review off us recently and seems to have re-established this size of device as a genuine contender. The original Dell Streak, while being well-received, didn't exactly set the market alight.

The phone looks like the finished product, so that specification, not to mention a launch, can't be far off. Stayed tuned for that as soon as we hear anything.
