Looking for a Android tablet with a wacky design, or a tablet with a solid one-hand grip and built-in kickstand? Ever since Sony decided to end production of the only Android tablet with an original design with the Sony Xperia Tablet S, there have been none. But this fall Lenovo is taking a chance by coming out with 8-inch and 10-inch tablets that stand out from the crowd. If not in the specs, than at least in design.
