Lenovo Group, the world's No.4 PC brand, said it will roll out its own tablet PC, becoming the latest technology company to jump on the bandwagon for computers styled after Apple Inc's popular iPad.

Lenovo was developing a tablet PC, known internally as LePad, that would run on Google Inc's Android operating system, Lenovo spokeswoman Wu Hwa said on Wednesday, adding that no launch date had been set and the name of the product may change. “We want the tablet PC to be compatible with our LePhone smartphone, which is why we're using Android,” Wu said. LePhone is Lenovo's smartphone offering in China, sold by China Unicom, which also runs on Android.
