Chinese computer maker Lenovo recently unveiled three new tablets they would be launching in the U.S. and other major markets this year. The three included one Windows 7 tablet PC and two Google Android Honeycomb tablets. For the Windows side the lone tablet PC was the 10.1-inch Lenovo IdeaPad P1. As for the Android platform there is the consumer Lenovo IdeaPad K1 and then there is the business 10.1-inch Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet.

Now Lenovo has said that all three would launch this year, but only the Android based models have had their MSRP’s made public. Lenovo is keeping the pricing for the Fall bound IdeaPad P1 tablet PC to themselves. However a new online product listing might have provided us with that information without Lenovo’s help.

Popular online retailer ExcaliberPC.com has published a product order page for the Lenovo Ideapad P1 102823U, which is Silver/Grey with a 32GB SSD and 2GB of DDR2 RAM, for pre-order and the listed price is $599. The specifications listed for the Lenovo Ideapad P1 102823U can’t be verified for now because Lenovo hasn’t unveiled the full specs. for the IdeaPad P1 yet.

ExcaliberPC is known for having pre-order pages up lighting quick for brand new products, but sometimes they do have the prices wrong. However in this case I can believe that $599 price, do you? Check out the tablet PC’s partial specifications as provided by ExcaliberPC in their listing below.
