Not to be overshadowed by the slew of tablets from other manufacturers, Lenovo announced today that it is launching its LePad tablet worldwide in June.

This will come three months after the LePad's release in China, which Lenovo has slated for the end of March.

The company announced the LePad at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last month. Specifications for the device were a 1.3 GHz Snapdragon processor, a 10.1-inch screen, and Andriod 2.2 -- though it is likely that the device will ship running the Android 3.0, which is optimized for tablets. The LePad was also announced with an IdeaPad U1 keyboard base, which converts the device into a notebook.

Shanghai-based Lenovo is largest personal computer vendor there and the fourth largest in the world.

Lenovo anticipates that the LePad will cost $399 to $499 when it ships, making it one of the only tablets to run at a price point competitive to that of Apple's iPad.
