Lenovo Group, North Carolina based PC manufacturer has announced that it will launch a "Smartbook" at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.
The name smartbook was first used by Qualcomm and Freescale for the device, which is in between netbooks and Smartphones. While netbooks run on Intel’s Atom processors and feature Windows operating systems, Smartbooks are based on a Qualcomm mobile processor called Snapdragon and have Linux software.
