Whopping 23-inch Tablet Coming from Lenovo
Lenovo apparently thinks that consumers want tablets larger than the average desktop computer monitor because the company is preparing a 23-inch tablet for consumer markets.
To contrast, the average desktop monitor is usually 19 inches, and the 10-inch iPad , which seems to be more than adequate for millions of users, is less than half the size of Lenovo's tablet. Even laptops rarely extend beyond 17 inches.
"We think that there is potential for a 23-inch tablet. We'd have to take care of battery life and we are working to get the weight down," William Cai, Lenovo's senior marketing specialist, told TechRadar. "It's obviously not for full mobility use, but it could be moved from room to room in the house and used with a full keyboard, or as a television. Or you could lay it on a table top and use it for family games."
The Lenovo tablet would reportedly look much like the all-in-one computers that already look much like a desktop monitor that contains all the necessary hardware. In essence, they would just be making a desktop computer (marginally) more portable.
As Cai mentioned, there are still design hurdles to overcome, and it's still an untested market. The largest tablets on the market are still 10 inches, and the largest to date (the 14-inch Kno tablet ) was scrapped before it ever came to market.
Despite the hurdles, Cai said the 23-inch Lenovo tablet will be on store shelves later this year.
