Lenovo pushing harder into the tablet market. The Lenovo Ideapad K1 running Honeycomb, has been out for pre-ordering a couple days, but now Lenovo released another two slates under the names ThinkPad tablet (Android) and the IdeaPad P1 tablet (Windows). Check below specs of all three tablets. See the difference and compare the devices. All devices come in the, by now almost standard, 10-inch tablet size.

The Ideapad K1 (Android)
The Lenovo Ideapad K1 has a 10.1 inch 1280 x 800 pixel display,

powered by a Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core CPU with 1GB of RAM. There is 16, 32 and 64GB models that can be connected to network through WiFi, Bluetooth and optional through 3G. The device has microHDMI out to see your pictures, videos and so on, on a large HD Screen. The K1 has two on board speakers and a 2 megapixel front camera, plus a 5MP camera at the back.

ThinkPad Tablet (Android)
The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet has almost the same specs as the Ideapad K1. The Thinkpad uses the same screen as the Ideapad K1, a 10.1 inch 1280 x 800 pixel display except that it has a IPS Gorilla glass display built-in. The slate is also powered by a Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core CPU with 1GB of RAM and is a bit larger. The tab comes with a full size USB 2.0 port and pen dock. Also included is SIM card slot and a 3-in-1 card reader, miniHDMI port, microUSB port and WiFi. Bluetooth 2.0 and a 3G option. The battery runs a bout 8.7 hours with Wi-Fi turned on.

For $529 you get a ThinkPad with pen and the keyboard folio will set you back $99. 3G units will come later and the P1 doesn’t have a price yet.

IdeaPad Tablet P1 (Windows)
How affective it will be for Lenovo to throw a 10-inch Windows 7 tablet into the market is unknown. For sure is, that win7 tabs are phase-out models in the tablet world.Lenovo maybe just should have waited for Windows 8, but instead is shipping the Lenovo IdeaPad P1 with Windows 7. The tab is weighs two pounds and also comes like the two android models with a 10.1 inch 1280 x 800 pixel display. The slate is powered by a 1.5GHz Intel Atom CPU and is available with up to 2GB of DDR2 memory and 32GB or 64GB of storage. WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth and 3G. A USB 2.0 Port and microSD card reader. The Lenovo IdeaPad K1 (32GB) and 16GB Thinkpad can be ordered right now from and partners, shipping in August. And you better got with the 32GB model because it has the same price as the 16GB model : $499.
