Lenovo reportedly planning 23-inch tablet for this year (updated)

Summary:Do you wish the 10.1-inch Lenovo LePad was just a bit bigger? Would a 23-inch tablet do the trick?

Do you wish the 10.1-inch Lenovo LePad was just a bit bigger? Would a 23-inch tablet do the trick?

Considering the LePad is already a forgotten gadget these days, the idea of a 23-inch slate from Lenovo seems a bit ridiculous. We do know that a slimmer LePad 2 is due out this year, but this likely isn't it.

However, TechRadar reports that Lenovo is planning to release a 23-inch tablet later this year, citing multiple potential uses for the product as it could be moved from "room to room and used on tables."

Being used as an all-in-one desktop sounds like the most practical function, but something like this might be better for designers and other professional purposes rather than home computing and entertainment. It also could be a portable and travel-friendly version of Microsoft's Surface touch screen table. Let's just hope Lenovo's tablet is cheaper.

Do you have any interest in a 23-inch tablet?

UPDATE: We can all keep dreaming about this for now, but don't hold your breath on such a release from Lenovo this year. It's not happening.
