Lenovo’s answer to the Transformer Prime has now made it to the FCC. It was at the CES event early in the year as the IdeaTab S2110A, which included a keyboard docking station. This is handy for those who need to frequently type and it boosts the battery life by almost double, thanks to the extra battery unit also included in the keypad.
Spec wise, the tablet will have at its core the Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 chip that operates in conjugation with a 1 GB DDR2 RAM. Other features of the IdeaTab S2110A include a 10 inch 1280 x 800 pixel display, HDMI, and micro USB ports, along with 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, and optional 3G for connectivity.
Meanwhile, in another development, Lenovo has unveiled the LePad S2107 in China. The new 7 inch tablet is exclusive to the Chinese market as of now.
The LePad S2107 is also different from the other tablets of its class in that it sports two SIM card slots, probably making it the first tablet device to do so. As a result, two different mobile broadband services can be used by the tablet with no need to swap the card.
The tablet has a capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. RAM strength stands at 1 GB while internal memory amounts to 16 GB. At its heart, the S2107 comes with a 1 GHz MTK6575 single core chip. This is the common chip used in most tablets and smartphones that are made in China. The tablet also includes a dual camera setup. As for its battery backup time, Lenovo is claiming it to be around 10 hours from the 3,550 mAh battery unit. The tablet runs Android 4.0 ICS.
The Lepad S2107 is slated to go on sale in China starting next week.
