Snapdragon powered Lenovo Skylight bound for AT&T at $499
AT&T may be gambling on the just announced Lenovo Skylight smartbook, but hopefully it’ll catch the eyes of consumers with its unique design and user interface. Lenovo’s Skylight is presented as the “first ARM-based processor smartbook device based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset platform.” It integrates the best features found in a notebook and smartphone – all culminating to the creation of the Skylight. It has a sleek design that rivals even the most streamlined looking netbooks on the market and packs all of the common amenities – 3G, Wi-Fi, 1.3-megapixel camera, 10” HD display (1280 x 720), and a “unique custom interface.”

Although it won’t pack on Windows XP or 7, its user interface approach looks to be a bit more simplified and provides “web gadgets” to Gmail, YouTube, Facebook, and various programs. We wouldn’t suggest saving all your multimedia files on its paltry 20GB of storage space – it’s supplemented with 2GB of cloud storage as well. You can leave your charger at home if thanks to its touted 10 hour battery life – placing it in contention with other similar netbooks. All of this can be yours through AT&T for $499 with no contract; expect pricing to be lower once subsidies are in place. Is it a gamble on AT&T’s part to offer this smartbook as part of their lineup? Yeah we think so, but hopefully it’ll garner some backing and really find its niche in the consumer market.
