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
1.3MP webcam

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.

  1. Can you hold it to your ear and call someone?
    Wheres the touch screen? :)

  2. smart phones -> super phones.

    Then we have something going in between. crazy/confusing much?

  3. Nope, I don’t think its gonna change the way people access the web and media as the guy on the first video ends his talk. This thing’s only purpose is to surf the web. Its just another low powered netbook. And you can do more with your ordinary atom based netbook than this one.

    Looks like some people at Lenovo are not doing their homework.

    No Intel inside? Its long battery life would’ve tempted lazy students like myself but, jeez, it looks like it’s just an over-sized smartphone.
