Lenovo five-inch dual-core tablet leaked

Lenovo is readying a dual-core five-inch Android tablet to be marketed under the LePad brand in China and IdeaPad in the rest of the world, according to as-yet unconfirmed details leaked from the company.

While it might leave people wondering why they would want a small touch screen device that wasn't their smartphone, the same thoughts were had about Dell's reasonably successful Streak 5 'tablet.' For now it's unknown whether the Lenovo device has voice calling capabilities, though some of the leaked pictures that tech new site Engadget has dug up do leave it as a 'maybe' instead of an outright 'no.'

Other details revealed by the images include a micro-USB port, HDMI output and a front facing camera. These are similar features to the ones found on the 10.1-inch Lenovo tablet that had its details leaked on tech news sites just over a week ago, which is tipped to use Android 4.0 'Ice Cream Sandwich' and to launch before the end of the year.

These aren't the only recently leaked Lenovo products, either: there's also the Android/Windows hybrid laptop that's based on the existing ultra-slim ThinkPad X1 design, although as yet the company hasn't confirmed or denied the existence of any of the aforementioned devices. monitors all leading technology stories and rounds them up to help you save time hunting them down.
