Lenovo Skylight Smartbook
Lenovo got a lot of press lately with some of the most innovative products unveiled at CES. One of their new products is the Lenovo Skylight smartbook.
Lenovo Skylight is the first ARM-based processor smartbook device based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset platform which combines the features of a smartphone and a netbook into one.
No Intel inside, no AMD. The processor used is the 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, same one used in the Motorola Milestone, HTC Touch HD2 and Google Nexus One.
10.1″ display screen @ 1280×720 pixels
4GB USB reader (up to 16GB)
1GHz Snapdragon ARM processor
WiFi 802.11 b/g
The Skylight runs on a customized Linux OS and boasts of a 10-hour battery life. And, at under 2lbs it’s very thin (18.9mm) and light. As for the price, it’s $499 and comes with an AT&T plan. I guess the unlocked version might sell for double that price.
