Apparently Lenovo is scheduled to launch their new IdeaPadK1 (LePad) Honeycomb tablet next month and from the looks of it, Buy.com is one of the retailers ready to sell with a listing of the device already in place.

In case the IdeaPadK1 is news to you (I never heard of it until now) this is Lenovo’s 10.1-inch, Android 3.0 (also lists as 3.1?) Honeycomb device with 32GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, 5MP rear/2MP front facing cameras and in an interesting turn of events, an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. What’s also nice to see is a micro sd card slot for memory expansion, SIM card slot and micro HDMI out. I’m still trying to find out if this thing has a proprietary usb connection (always a deal breaker for me). Still no word on pricing from Buy.com but another online retailer, Krex, is listing the tablet at $510.

Overall, the tablet looks a bit like a chubby iPad and its one of the few tablets that will actually feature Lenovo’s custom UI over stock Android but we don’t know to what extent. I should also mention that in China, they offer a 16GB version but that was no where to found on Buy.com – yet.

I know Lenovo has quite the following here in the states and it will be interesting to see how this performs in the already growing Android tablet market. What do you guys think? Could this be a potential buy for any of you? Or do you have your hearts already set on something else?
