Lenovo might not describe their return to the Linux desktop like that, but that’s what they’re doing. Yesterday, November 12th, Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs gave the world a sneak peak at the Lenovo ARM Snapdragon-powered smartbook, a cross between a smartphone and a netbook. Jacobs added that Lenovo Linux-based smartbook would make its debut at January’s CES (Computer Electronics Show).
We don’t know, at this point, what Linux it will be running. In an e-mail, Lenovo confirmed that it was developing a smartbook based on the ARM Snapdragon processor and that they expect to announce it at CES.¬† But, “Unfortunately, there are no further details at this point.”
