    Engadget was able to get hold of some pics of a new Lenovo 5-inch Android tablet. The tab will initially come out in China as part of the LePad branding lineup, but will likely be called the IdeaTab here in the States to differentiate it from the IdeaPad lineup. Here's what they revealed about the specs:
    • 5-Inch Display
    • Unspecified Dual-Core Processor
    • A micro-USB port
    • HDMI output
    • Front-facing camera
    They didn't know which Android OS it was likely to have, and they also had no idea of pricing or time-frame of launch. Why make such a small device that is not also a phone? Share your thoughts. There are some more pics at the source link below.

    I don't see that little bit of screen real estate making it a match for my Droid Bionic.

    Looks like a step backward rather than a step forward. Why a 5" screen? Not much larger than a smartphone, so it doesn't make sense. Unless it's sub $100, it won't be viable.

    This could give the iPod Touch some competition.

    It's a bigger screen than the iPod Touch (3.5") and Apple sells tons of them. I hope it has an SD card slot.

    I think is a smart move for Lenovo anyway. Perfect for your pocket and big enough that it wont hurt your eyes. I'm sure there will be people grabbing this one.
