Lenovo's convertible style Honeycomb tablet boasts an optional stylus - slated for summer
As we quickly approach the summer season, there’s no arguing the amount of heated competition expected out of the tablet market, but it appears as though Lenovo is planning to differentiate its Honeycomb powered tablet by dishing out its own flavor.

Similar to the convertible style ASUS EeePad Transformer, with its laptop-esque functionality, the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet with Android 3.0 Honeycomb will follow accordingly with its own “keyboard booklet and cradle.” Basically, power users will especially adore the productivity it’ll provide by connecting the 10.1” tablet to its keyboard cradle. Moreover, it has the usual suspects of hardware to keep it in line with the competition – like its dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset, HDMI out, USB ports, SD card reader.  However, it’s following the HTC Flyer’s route by bringing along its very own stylus as an additional form of input.

Of course, we’ll see Wi-Fi and 3G variants of the ThinkPad tablet, and much like most tablets nowadays, it’ll be available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities – the latter of which will offer Cisco’s security software that should complement any enterprise users out there. So far, there are some leaked images of the tablet that better reveal its design and form, but it’s speculated to launch some time in the summer.

Depending on how the stylus function gets implemented, it could be a sleeper must-have item. FIrst HTC is out with a stylus, now Lenovo. Anyone want to guess whether Steve will allow a stylus to become part of the iPad? I suspect we will be seeing Flash support in iOS before we will be seeing stylus support.

And seeing as we will NEVER see Flash on iOS, we probably won't see it on any Apple product. A stylus is a fringe item, as it really only appeals to the fringe market that doesn't like the natural, finger shaped stylus that comes equipped on their hand.

dont u think the stylus will be lost anyways? what then? it would be better if it somehow fit into the device or at least had some magnets that would make it a smart stylus or something...
