Online sources are reporting that Lenovo is ditching their customized edition of the Linux OS that was to power their Tablet PC models.

The company is said to be considering switching to Google Android instead.

Android is an open source platform based on the Linux OS. It is already massively popular in the smartphone market and is also being used to power some Tablets.

Switching to Google Android would benefit Lenovo in the long run. They would not have to spend too many resources on developing the core OS for their products. Android would also provide a massive support for third party apps that are available from the official market operated by Google.
