The firm is aiming to beat a number of rival vendors to get the title of first Windows 8 tablet, according to The Verge. It will have to launch the tablet before the likes of Dell, HP and Asus.

Details are light on the Lenovo Windows 8 tablet apart from the fact it will contain an Intel processor. A likely contender for Lenovo is its IdeaPad Yoga which was demonstrated at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) running Windows 8.

October is a likely release date for Windows 8 because it marks the third anniversary of the launch of Windows 7. It is also probably that vendors will re-release existing Windows 7 tablets upgraded to Windows 8, provided they meet Microsoft’s requirements including five touch points and certain hardware buttons.
