WSJ: Lenovo Working on Convertible Windows RT Tablet

While Lenovo has already announced Intel-powered WIndows 8 tablets, the Wall Street Journal is now reporting that the company is also readying an ARM-based Windows RT tablet, too, which look set to compete directly with Surface.

The Journal explains that Lenovo are teaming up with Nvidia to deliver a convertible tablet "with a keyboard that flips around to turn the product into a tablet." That makes it sound an awful lot like the Surface—but then, there's not much to go on.


If the rumor's true, Lenovo will become just the third manufacturer to officially be launching a Windows RT tablet, along with Microsoft and Asus. While the Windows RT-running Surface is set to appear on October 26th, there're still no pricing details available. If Lenovo do put out an RT tablet along the line of the Surface, it will be interesting to see how the two compare. [Wall Street Journal via Verge]
