Lenovo Thinkpad Mini 10 netbook caught in the wild [Video]

Lenovo Thinkpad Mini 10The rumoured Lenovo Thinkpad Mini 10 netbook looks like a reality. The 10-inch N450 Atom powered netbook is currently being rolled out to 60,000 students across Australia. In addition the device comes with Windows 7 Home Premium, a spill-resistant keyboard and HDD protection.

It looks like the Thinkpad Mini 10 uses the same chassis as the X100e, hence the huge bezel surrounding the 10.1-inch (1280 x 720) display. The big question is whether Lenovo plans to release this model into retail, or whether it will only be targeted to schools. Check out some photos and a video of the device after the break. Read more

Lenovo prepping Thinkpad Mini 10 & Mini 11 netbooks?

Lenovo ThinkpadOkay, 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.
