Lenovo's mystery handheld
A small handheld computer from Lenovo that's available only in China right now surfaces at CES 2008.
LAS VEGAS--At Lenovo's press dinner the other night there was an unidentified handheld on display, sitting casually next to the three new consumer-friendly IdeaPad laptops the company had come to Las Vegas to push.
No one--not even the PR people for Lenovo--could give me specific details. All they could say was that it is only available in China, the company's home market. This video gives a bit more detail, including that it runs Linux and uses a new 45-nanometer chip from Intel.
From what I saw, it had a lot of nice features, even if it was a bit hefty: GPS, music, Web browsing, a camera, plus several-layer-deep menus I didn't have time to delve into.
No word on whether it's something planned for the North American market any time soon.
