Qualcomm Snapdragon Chip Powers Lenovo Skylight

Qualcomm Snapdragon Chip Powers Lenovo SkylightSure, all of those netbook guys seem to be pretty happy with Intel Atom and they’re yelling out all sorts of cheers for Pine Trail, but that doesn’t mean that Qualcomm is going to sit idly by on the sidelines. Ushering in one of the first real entries into the emerging smartbook category is the Lenovo Skylight.

Just as netbooks are meant to slot somewhere between smartphones and notebook PCs, smartbooks fill the even smaller niche between smartphones and netbooks. It’s only a matter of time before someone comes up with another “in between” form factor for us to consider.

The Skylight by Lenovo gets its juice from the 1GHZ Snapdragon chipset, offering plenty of processing power while retaining a more reasonable battery life. Features include a 10.1-inch screen, integrated AT&T 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, a full keyboard, custom “web gadget” interface, and over ten hours of active battery life.

the expectation is that the Lenovo Skylight smartbook will sell for $499 when it goes on sale in April. AT&T will likely subsidize this price if you choose to latch onto a two-year data plan with big blue.
