Lenovo to introduce LePad tablet in the U.S. next year Lenovo has said today it will launch its LePad Android tablet in the U.S. next year, looking to compete in the ever-growing market for fast, portable, touchscreen gadgets running mobile operating systems.
CEO Yan Yuanqing confirmed the device which was first spoken about over the summer.

The American tablet market has grown exponentially since Apple launched the iPad in April. Dell, HP, RIMM, Samsung, Toshiba and LG have all released or promised to release tablets within the next quarter.

Lenovo did not put a price on the tablet just yet but did note it will launch in China early next year, as well.

The company is also heavily investing in a "program to support developers of mobile Internet applications and services as the firm looks to expand its application download store, which will work with the LePad," says the WSJ.
