A new report from the Dow Jones Newswires revealed that Chinese computer manufacturer Lenovo is planning to bring two Android-based tablets to the United States sometime this summer.
One tablet, the LePad, is a consumer device that was revealed some time ago. But it is the second tablet, the ThinkPad that may prove to be an interesting arrival.
Unlike the LePad, the ThinkPad is an enterprise device designed to suit the needs of professionals. The tablet features a 10-inch screen and comes with a stylus for signature capture and to provide users with easier handling.
Additionally, the news provider stated that Lenovo plans to launch a new Windows-based tablet later this year, as well as a number of smaller tablets down the road.
"Some of the early-generation Android devices were a little ahead of their time, and what we're doing here is making sure [our tablets] are strong," Rory Read, Lenovo president and COO, told the news provider. "We only have one opportunity to make that first good impression."
Though Lenovo isn't expected to be a powerhouse in the tablet market, it is predicted to have a decent showing. According to recent figures from Jefferies, Lenovo will sell 3 million tablets this year, and 14 million in 2014.
