Lenovo to launch a Windows 8 tablet in the fourth Quarter
We reported last week that Nokia might be working on the first Windows 8 tablet. This sounded very possible considering Nokia's tight relationship with Microsoft. Turns out, Nokia isn't the only one in the race. According to The Verge, Lenovo is planning to be the first manufacturer to release a tablet with the latest version of Microsoft Windows as early as October 2012
The report suggested that Lenovo's Windows 8 tablet will feature a processor from Intel and the IdeaPad Yoga seen at CES 2012 may be the Windows 8 tablet in question. The Yoga, displayed at CES with Windows 8 running on it, is a 13.3-inch Ultrabook which can be transformed into a tablet. Dell, Asus, Samsung and HP are also said to be in the race to bring out the first Windows 8 tablet, but it is really unknown yet as to which manufacturer will actually make it out first. Windows 8's native support for both x86 and ARM-based chips means that the number of Windows 8 devices produced could be unimaginable.
