Internal storage is up to 64GB, with up to 1GB of RAM. The forward-facing camera is 2MP and the rear-facing is 5MP and a 10 hour battery.

The base price on the IdeaPad K1 is $449 for the 16GB version with release in August

Lenovo IdeaPad P1

This tablet is very similar to the K1, except that it runs Window 7 Professional with a 1.5 GHz Intel processor. This tablet can be souped up with more RAM, but doesn't include a rear facing camera. Instead of 10 hours like the K1, the Intel processor/Windows combination reduces the battery life to 6 hours.

The IdeaPad P1 has no price yet, and will be available sometime in the "4th Quarter 2011."
