- Lenovo Ideapad U1 Hybrid Notebook/Tablet - Lenovo’s Ideapad U1 hybrid PC is due out on June 1 for less than $1000.

- Notion Ink Adam Smartpad – is the 10.1-inch Pixel Qi display, which could potentially stretch the Adam’s battery life far beyond that of other tablet PCs, especially when combined with the power-efficient nVidia Tegra chip.

The PCTablet also packs a 60GB hard drive and 1GB of RAM, offers networking via 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and 100-mbps ethernet, and has USB 2.0, microphone, and 3.5mm audio ports, as well as a 1.3-megapixel Webcam.

Other specs include a 1.3-megapixel Webcam, an accelerometer, dual digital microphones, an FM radio, and an ambient-light sensor.
