Aw, that’s no good. Lenovo’s sub-two-pound, handsome, interesting Skylight Smartbook was supposed to be available this month but Laptop Magazine is reporting that the ship date has been pushed to July.

The Skylight is supposed to be the first real-life smartbook on the market. Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and promising 10-hour battery life, the 3G-enabled Skylight is shooting for an unlocked price of $500, although it’ll likely be subsidized through AT&T if purchased with a two-year mobile internet plan.

Other features include a 10.1-inch HD screen, integrated USB memory stick that swivels out and can be detached for use with other computers, decent keyboard, and a customized Linux operation system made mostly of automatically updating web widgets for e-mail, social networking, and news.
