Lenovo has just announced its latest Android tablet running Ice Cream Sandwich, the IdeaTab S2109. Beside its complex name, the tablet sports a 9.7-inch IPS LCD with a 4:3 aspect ratio. The resolution of the tablet is known, but considering it has a 4:3 aspect ratio, the resolution should ideally be 1024*768. Compared to the Full HD (1920*1080) resolution in the upcoming Android tablets, and the Retina display on the new iPad, the resolution is quite a disappointment. The tablet is a mere 8.9 mm thin, and will have a unibody gunmetal finish for a premium feel in the hand.
The S2109 will be powered by a TI OMAP SoC, either the 4430 or the 4460, which is again inferior to the Tegra 3 in benchmarks. Other specs of the tablet include 1GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS, FM radio (!), micro-HDMI, micro-USB and the usual bunch of sensors. Lenovo also states that the tablet comes with quad (!) speakers for a true SRS Trumedia experience. Whether the tablet really manages to fit in four quality speakers in such a slim body, or is this just a marketing gimmick from Lenovo can only be found once it hits the retail market. Lenovo also promises up to 10 hours of battery life for the tablet.
Thankfully, the IdeaPad will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box. The company is yet to send out a a press release about the launch of the tablet, along with more details about its pricing and release date though.
