Lenovo’s joining the tablet party this summer by launching its own tablet. To boot, it comes with its own custom, Lenovo-flavored version of Honeycomb. Over the weekend, This Is My Next got their hands on a document detailing the Thinkpad device. Also somewhere, a Lenovo PR rep is crying.

Lenovo’s 10.1-inch tablet comes with a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, and runs on Android 3.0. It also sports a 1280×800 capacitive touchscreen, along with a front and rear camera. The whole thing is slated to come in 16GB, 32BG or 64GB storage options.

And just to give the tablet that little sumthin’ extra, Lenovo’s dropping some ports on the thing. It’ll have a USB 2.0, micro USB and SD card slot. There are also some mini-HDMI ports for extra connectivity. Now, let’s take a look at how many ports Apple’s iPad 2 has going for it…

The device is expected to clock up to 8 hours, weighing in at 1.5 lbs. It seems like the tablet might also possibly come with an optional keyboard dock and stylus. Lenovo wants to drop the baby starting at $499 this summer, depending on the exact configurations.

The PowerPoint says the gadget is designed for “on-the-go professionals.” At any rate, this device sure sounds a hell of a lot more portable than a 23-inch tablet, that’s for sure.
