Lenovo has teased one of its upcoming tablets via a YouTube video, the IdeaPad S2109 which runs Android 4.0 ICS and sports a 9.7-inch display. The video gives a good look at the tablet which is just 8.9mm thick and uses an alluring gunmetal unibody case.
The 9.7-inch display equals the first and second-gen iPad with its 1024×768 resolution screen. The tablet’s connectivity includes a micro-HDMI port, micro-SD slot for expandable memory and a micro-USB port. There’s a 1.3MP front-facing shooter, but sadly no camera on the rear.
One other feature of this tablet that’s a bit of a standout is the inclusion of four SRS TruMedia-branded speakers in the back of the device. Lenovo claims the S2109’s battery life to reach 10 hours which isn’t too shabby, but we’re yet to ascertain which SoC this tablet houses or other specs like its internal memory capacity etc.
We’re still waiting on a price or when it’ll launch. In the meantime you can check out the video above to get a better taste of this 9.7-inch Ice Cream Sandwich dressed slate.
KitGuru says: Given the recent price drops on the iPad 2, one would hope the S2109 will nestle in at a slightly lower price point to really gain market attraction. Also don’t forget Lenovo’s own IdeaTab S2 that was just recently announced – slightly larger at 10.1-inches sporting Qualcomm’s new S4 MSM8960.
