Full specifications haven’t been revealed, but this tiny device is believed to sport a micro-USB port, HDMI out, a front-facing camera and capacitive buttons, suggesting it will run on the Android operating system.
Lenovo currently markets the ThinkPad line of notebook PCs and ThinkCentre line of desktops, alongside the IdeaPad line of notebook computers. The Hong Kong based manufacturer is currently readying a 10.1 inch tablet that will also launch under its IdeaTab brand. Early reports suggest that this larger model will come packed with a Tegra 3 quadcore processor and will run Android 4.0.1, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich.
The 10.1 inch tablet is rumoured to launch by the end of the year, while the 5 inch model could make an appearance at CES 2012 in January.
