Posted in Netbook by Conner Flynn on June 29th, 2010

We haven’t heard any news about this one since back in April. While the delay of Lenovo’s Skylight smartbook is disappointing, it gives Lenovo some time to swap in a newer, more powerful, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor.

The Skylight smartbook should be powered by Google’s Android OS when it is finally released before the end of the year. The processor would certainly make this one more attractive to buyers.

According to Digitimes, Lenovo has delayed the launch of its Skylight smartbook from April to July in order to improve the device’s working performance and is targeting iPad as the device’s competitor. This is because Skylight uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor with a Linux-based operating system and is mainly for online activities.

But since it doesn’t function as smoothly as the iPad and doesn’t have as many functions, Lenovo has decided to postpone the launch in order to improve it.

The Skylight is Lenovo’s first ARM-based Snapdragon Smartbook. Qualcomm is providing its 1GHz Snapdragon chipset. It features a 10.1″ screen and will weigh less than two pounds. Lenovo says that it gets 10 hours-plus of active battery life as well.

Skylight will be paired with AT&T for 3G, along with its own built-in Wi-Fi. Some other features include a full keyboard and a custom interface that uses “web gadgets” for direct access to popular services like Gmail and Facebook.
