Okay, there’s not much to go on here, but a recent FCC filing from Realtek Semiconductor has mentioned two unheard of devices when conducting wireless SAR (specific absorption rate) testing. The Thinkpad Mini 10 and Thinkpad Mini 11 are cited as ‘host’ devices along with the already outed Thinkpad X100e.
The Thinkpad X100e is an AMD-powered 11.6-inch ultra-thin. Could the Thinkpad Mini 10 and Mini 11 be Lenovo’s Atom-based Thinkpad solution? I would imagine that the former would come with a 10.1” display and the latter with an 11.6” screen, but there’s limited information here. They may not be netbooks at all but codenames for wirelesss adaptors as suggested by Wireless Goodness. Either way, if anything more tangible comes from this we’ll keep you posted.
