We’ve seen a lot of hybrid tablets that run both Android and Windows in a dual-boot setup, but if Lenovo has its way, we might see an actual laptop running exclusively on Android in the near future.

Meet the IdeaPad A10. As the name suggests, it’s a 10-inch device, and according to its user manual, it’s not a tablet with a keyboard accessory. No sir, this thing has a keyboard that stays permanently attached to the screen like a laptop, though the small 10-inch display means it’s more of a netbook.

Interestingly, the keyboard has been designed with Android in mind – it features a dedicated home, back and recent apps button, the same that you’d find on Android tablets and phones running a stock version of the OS (Samsung and HTC devices have their own button schemes). For the times you would want to use it just as a tablet, you’ll be able to flip it into “theater mode”, using the keyboard as a kickstand.

In terms of hardware, the IdeaPad is a low-end device, rocking a 720p display, quad-core Rockchip A9 processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 2GB of RAM, and up to 32GB of storage. It has a trackpad for full mouse support, connectivity ports including USB, HDMI and microUSB, though there’s no info on when it will be officially launched and how it will be priced.
