Lenovo showcased an improved IdeaPad U1 Hybrid

Last year at CES 2010, Lenovo revealed their IdeaPad U1 Hybrid which is a netbook with a detachable display that you can use separately as a tablet.

This year at CES 2011, Lenovo reintroduced a better and improved version of their U1 Hybrid. It works the same as the first version but with better specs. It still runs on Windows when docked but when you take off the display, the tablet which is called Lenovo LePad by the way, will run on its own using Android instead of Linux which was its OS last year.

It has a 10.1″ capacitive multitouch display with a whopping 1280 x 800 resolution. The base itself will be sporting a 1.2GHz Intel Core i5-540UM and your usual netbook specs.

As for the price, this two-for-one gadget will go for $1300 but the LePad can also be bought separately for $520. It won’t be available yet though until they get an Android 3.0 on it.
