Earlier this year, Lenovo showcased a prototype of its IdeaPad featuring one of the new Intel Atom Oak Trail chips, and that tablet has now surfaced on Intel’s press page with some more information on the forthcoming device.
Intel recently boasted that its Atom Oak Trail Z670 chip, designed with tablets specifically in mind, would be making its debut in the near future. Sure enough, the company is now saying that the IdeaPad will feature the 1.5GHz processor, which will bring better battery life and 1080p HD video to the tablet. According to the press page, the IdeaPad will also sport 2GB of memory, 30GB of SSD storage, and, perhaps most surprisingly, the option for stylus input on its touchscreen display, much like the upcoming HTC Flyer.
Though there is no confirmation yet on what operating system the IdeaPad will run, the fact that it will be packing an x86 chip and that its prototype was running Windows 7 when it was shown off at CES both point towards Microsoft’s OS. Additionally, Intel previously stated that the new chip will support the Windows 7 OS, something that its last-generation Moorestown chip was unable to do. Pricing and availability also have yet to be disclosed.
