There could be more tablets from Lenovo after the dual release of Ideapad K1 and Thinkpad Tablet. A new tablet, codenamed Ideapad A1-07 hit FCC yesterday, making it the third in a row of possible releases from the Chinese laptop giant. No specs were confirmed then, but a couple of leaked photos by Engadget today reveal that the tablet will have a 7” screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. It could also feature a Broadcom GPS unit, 3G wireless with a SIM slot, and a microSD slot as well. A 3,700mAh battery should provide enough juice for close to 7-8 hrs of sensible use. Like most of today’s tablets, this one is also expected to sport both front- and rear-facing cameras.

Rumors of a 7” tablet surfaced last December, but no news surfaced after that about that machine. In April Netbooknews reported of a leaked roadmap of Lenovo that suggested another 7” tablet sporting dual-core ARM powered tablet with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. We are not sure if we are talking about two different 7 inchers here, but one thing for sure – Lenovo has been keeping itself quite busy these days.
