    Ok Lenovo has done the impossible or they are impossibly incompetent, mad geniuses or bumbling buffoons.

    From Tabletmonkeys New Tablets - List of Upcoming Tablets 2016 Sorted by US Release Dates
    Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus 10 Windows 10 / Android 6.0 10.1 November (US) $299 Qualcomm Snapdragon 652

    A Lenovo 10.1 inch Yoga Tab 3 Plus with either Windows 10 or Android 6.0 coming in November for $299 With a Snapdragon 652 ARM SoC. Except if you read the details the Windows 10 version comes with a Snapdragon 625 (not that much different).

    Lenovo's site Yoga Tab 3 Plus | The Ultimate TV & Movie Tablet | Lenovo US | Lenovo US
    Specs
    Processor - Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 625 Octa-core: 4 x A72 1.8 GHz + 4 x A53 1.4 GHz
    Operating System - Windows 10 Home

    Yeah, that's not right... the 625 has 8 x A53 cores. The 652 is the one with Octa-core: 4 x A72 1.8 GHz + 4 x A53 1.4 GHz.

    AFAIK Windows 10 Home is still x86 only so they got the operating system wrong... OR DID THEY it could run Windows 10 Mobile (maybe not sure but I don't think mobile is allowed on 10" devices), UNLESS they shimed an emulator under Windows 10 Home and its running on X86 emulation.

    We can only hope Lenovo has some ground breaking technology to spring on us to make life interesting in the post Atom world but alas this is probably just a jumbled mess from Lenovo's marketing dept... stay tuned... has Lenovo done the heretofore impossible by springing ARM X86 emulation from their bat cave, are the evil geniuses going to take over the world, could they release groundbreaking technology in 2016? Find out next week or month on this same bat channel.

    I will pray for the evil geniuses at Lenovo to make this happen in an interesting and useful way. ;)

    MS, right before the TH2 update that Windows Mobile could go up to 10" It was intended to allow Chinese 2nd Tier ODM/OEMs to port Android Tablets to Windows 10 Mobile for the emerging market, Lenovo is technically a Chinese ODM/OEM :)
