We expected it for quite a while and word comes today that Lenovo has released its Olympic-themed MID, the IdeaPad U8, at the Olympics in China.  We saw the U8 at the CES back in January and as expected it’s packing an Atom processor (like everything else) and has connectivity options out the wazoo.  No word on pricing but we got the word straight from Lenovo that there has never been any plans to sell the U8 outside of China so don’t get your wallets out just yet.

  1. I would so like to see a device like this in the states. Unlike other UMPC/MID’s, it at least has a 9 number keypad (bare minimal essential) and not just a touch screen and it looks very portable; to top it off if it can run XP and make calls, it would kill all other Smart Phones, even possibly the iPhone.
