Rumour: Lenovo To Release Honey Badger Of Tegra 3 Tablets

Lenovo is not one to sit around and let Asus have all the super-specced tablet fun. Engadget has sniffed out a rumour that they’ll be bringing their own quad-core Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) very, very soon. Monster fight!

If you’re into specs, get ready to swoon. This feller is rumoured to be running a 1.6GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor and pack in a full 2GB of very fast 1600MHz DDR3 RAM. That’s double the RAM of any other tablet, at this point. Other goodies include a 10.1-inch screen (of unknown resolution), full-size USB port (woo!) and a fingerprint reader that double as a joystick. How a joystick (on the back) would be useful on a tablet is somewhat baffling to me.

Not much else is known at this point except that it will have a “Special Fusion-Skin Body” and a camera of some resolution. I’m sure we’ll find out more soon, but in the meantime Engadget has a few extreme close-ups of this thing. Lenovo didn’t make much of a splash with their somewhat unwieldy Thinkpad tablet, let’s see if they can trim it down and step up their game at the same time. [Engadget]
