23-inch Lenovo tablet coming in Q4 2011?

Exec spills the beans on upcoming enormo-tab

Are your wrists strong enough for the mega tab?

If you’re battling against Apple’s iPad, you’re going to need a pretty good unique selling point; Android alone isn’t going to do it. Lenovo is all too aware of this and it’s looking to size as the key - its planning to unleash a giant 23-inch tablet.

At 23-inches, the tab wouldn't be baggable. Chatting to TechRadar, Lenovo’s senior Marketing specialist William Cai explained the idea, stating that "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.”

He went on to explain that Lenovo is hoping to “take care of battery life,” and - crucially with a tab of this size – are “working to get the weight down.” He finished by revealing that the enormo-tab is pencilled in for launch “later this year." With Lenovo’s all-in-one desktops being the company’s meat and veg of late, they’ve certainly got the experience necessary to put together a slimline, large-screened machine.

Would such a device be a useful, multi-room machine, or is it a step too far in the tablet war? We’re keen to know your thoughts on the T3 Twitter feed.
