Lenovo X1 Hybrid

Now  this is an interesting product. Lenovo has just unveild the Lenovo X1 Hybrid. A laptop running Windows7 with Core i3, i5 or i7 processors (up to 8 GB RAM) OR  running Android with a dual-core 1.2 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 CPU (1GB RAM). It's a dual-CPU and dual-OS hybrid laptop. The laptop features a secondary Linux operating system (most probably based on Android) called IMM (Instand Media Mode).

You can switch to this mode by clicking an icon on the Windows 7 desktop. It's, however, not possible to boot right into the Instant Media Mode. A good thing when switching to IMM is that the battery life will last to up to 10 hours.

Here are the known specs of the Lenovo X1 Hybrid

  • 3.7-pound chassis
  • integrated Intel graphics
  • glossy, 13-inch (1366 x 768) Gorilla Glass display
  • Core i3, i5 OR i7 processors,
  • 3G radio and 
  • Optional slice battery for up to five more hours of battery life .

There will be no access to the Android market though.

Availability is expected to be in the second quarter for $1,599 and up
