Lenovo road map reveals ThinkPad X201 Tablet PC… and no others.

Good news, bad news: Good news is Engadget China managed to get their hands on Lenovo’s ThinkPad roadmap for 2010, and the X201 Tablet PC is right there in the tablet tier. Bad news? It’s obviously just an update to the X200, and there appear to be no other Tablet PCs on the map.

Yes, they will also release the U1 IdeaPad hybrid tablet, but that plus one ThinkPad refresh (probably not much more than a processor upgrade at that) do not add up to a major tablet computing push.

BTW, ThinkPad, IdeaPad, mouse pad, keypad, trackpad, touchpad, notepad. It’s weird how I’ve been using those terms for years and not once associated them with feminine hygiene products.

    The Engadget story you’ve linked to has an update: They have a photo from CES 2010 of a ThinkPad X200 (non tablet version) with a touchpad. They’re speculating that this may be the major upgrade feature of the X201. And, who knows, maybe the X201 Tablet will contain a touchpad as well.

    To those who associate iPad with “feminine hygiene products”: Grow up.

    Also, I’m a bit bummed that the x201 update is so insignificant. But maybe there will be more improvements in the small things. USB3 and SATA 6gbs would be nice, as well as affordable SSD and high resolution display options.

    I’m hoping for digital video output.

    Any idea when the X201 or X201s will be available for sale?

    Why would Lenovo wait so long for an insignificant upgrade to the x200t?

    I would hope that it would be the x210t in lieu of an x201t
