Looks good. I just got the new Kindle 8.9 HDX which runs Android, which is 8.9" 2560x1440 res, with 2GB memory and weighs 340g, most impressive tablet I've seen to date.

The Lenovo website says it won't be coming to NZ... :(

It's a shame they didn't chuck in a stylus, that would have firmly cemented it as the best Windows tablet available. Maybe it's just slightly too much to ask for at this stage. I'm surprised how nice a job they have done though!

A proper active digitiser job though ;) ? Even with the limited power of the Atom it has the potential to be a pretty awesome creative tool.
