Having first shown-off its new smartphone - the LePhone - at CES earlier this year, Lenovo has officially launched it to target market of China.

Reuters reports that Lenovo said at the event that it expects mobile internet products, which we take to include ARM-based mini-notebooks like the Skylight, to constitute between ten and 20 percent of its revenue within five years.

Chief exec Yang Yuanqing was at the event and he said the mobile internet devices market will overtake the traditional PC market in that period. This is why Lenovo, together with most other PC OEMs, is keen to make its mark now.

Incidentally, Engadget has got hold of documents that suggest Dell will be adding to its already previewed 5 inch slate - the mini 5 - with a 7 inch and a 10 inch version. The consumer name for them will be ‘Streak' and they clearly have the iPad in mind. With HP sat to launch its slate this year, this really does look like being the year of the tablet/slate.
