Ok. Here is so more info and though it might seem dated, Sept 1 2011 for original story in PC World this tablet has been around that long, just not yet brought to market.
I actually saw it on the Lenovo site, and have a page copy, and then they took it off. Maybe wasn't supposed to see it. I don't know.
One big thing is an on board GPS with maps and application that doesn't need a cellular or a WiFi connection just like your car GPS doesn't need those things.
