Speaking of a crowding tablet market, Lenovo's LePad, which has been floating around all year, is finally expected to ship starting in December.

According to Engadget, the Android-based LePad will first be released in China by the end of the year. No word when the 10.1-inch slate will see North America just yet, but there will be a second "hybrid" version, which is comprised of a keyboard and laptop parts. Specs on that are sparse, but Engadget predicts it will be Intel-based and run on Windows rather than Android.

It's hard to get excited over the LePad considering how little we know about it after this long. That combined with the debate over whether or not tablets should be running on Android (specifically Froyo), it could fill people with doubts.

What are you hoping to see out of the Lenovo LePad?
