The people over at Engadget have unearthed a video of Lenovo's Ideapad U8 in action, shedding a little more light on the upcoming Atom-based mobile Internet device. The lady showing off the U8 in the video is speaking Mandarin, but the UI is in English, and the eye candy needs no translation:
Lenovo first unveiled the IdeaPad U8 last week as the Intel Developer Forum rolled on in Shanghai, showing an official video of the device that mentioned features like a 4.8" touch screen, 3G and EDGE network support, an integrated GPS, and software for office productivity as well as photo and video browsing.
According to Engadget, the new video suggests the device will be available with 4GB, 6GB, and 10GB solid-state drives, and that it won't support WiMax connectivity. Seeing the device next to a human hand also gives a decent idea of its footprint. However, there's still no official (or unofficial) word on when the U8 might become available or whether Lenovo plans to introduce it in the United States.
