Lenovo IdeaPad U8 rides the Atom

This is what Lenovo is teasing us with and it’s fitted with Intels new Atom.

Unveiled at Intel’s IDF in Shanghai, the new Ideapad U8 device features a 4.8-inch touchscreen display and bullseye, optical mouse for single-handed operation while surfing the web via EDGE or 3G data.

The handheld also features “Live GPS,” hand writing recognition, and support for MS Office applications – it praps could even be used as a phone – check out the numeric pad.

With Intel calling this a MID, don’t expect to see a Microsoft OS being run on it.
