Lenovo Skylight – a ARM and Linux based smartbook… what?

Lenovo Skylight

From the Skylight Web: Lenovo Skylight is a sleek, stylish 10″ mobile HD device with a web-optimized interface that lets you enjoy the web and rich media everywhere you go.  Skylight is the digital solution for mobile users demanding a no-compromise, full web and media experience in a light, compact device.

Ok, now why Smartbook?

Skylight is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon™  ARM processor which generally is found in smartphones. This is more than a valid reason for the device to be called a smartbook and not a netbook! So it seems we now have a new class of devices under the name of smartbooks!

Lenovo Skylight


  • Weighs less than 2 lbs., is as thin as a smartphone and has a brilliant 10″ HD inch screen.
  • Over 10 hours of active battery life and dead easy charging method: simply plug it in at night to charge like a mobile phone.
  • WiFi and 3G connectivity (Whoa 3G on a laptop …. oops sorry… smartbook!)
  • Customised Linux based web software that is dead simple to use!
