Lenovo U1 hybrid laptop-tablet to live on as Android device

The blogosphere cried out in anguish that day, when Lenovo’s compelling (and slightly bizarre) U1 combination tablet and laptop was unceremoniously canceled, and the Skylight OS ditched for Android. The press release implied, but did not say outright, that the U1 was being sent to the great concept bin in the sky. I asked for clarification, and a Lenovo spokesperson told me:

the U1 is being reworked as an Android-based product, not being totally ditched.

Huzzah! That’s all we know for now. We’ll keep you informed.
