Lenovo Releases Three New Tablets
The tablet market is getting more crowded and current tablet manufacturers will be getting a competition from Lenovo. The notebook vendor has announced three tablets that are aimed at people with differing needs and tastes for mobile slates. The trio of tablets comes in three screen size, 10.1”, 7” and 5”. The LePad model S2010 is a 10.1” tablet, however unlike previous rumors; it won’t have quad-core processors and biometric fingerprint scanner. Even so, the 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU and 1GB of RAM are already powerful enough for today’s standard. For international market, the tablet will be dubbed the IdeaTab K2 and it will eventually get Ice Cream Sandwich. The tablet lugs a 7560mAh high capacity battery, which allows it to operate for 11 hours.
Its smaller brethren, the 7” LePad S2007 sports a marvelous IPS display with 1280 x 800 resolution. The device is powered with the same processor and RAM specifications as its bigger sibling. The dual-mode 3G support allows it to work on more carriers and it will be equipped with an 8Mp rear-facing camera, which is quite large for a tablet. The 9.7mm thick, 360g heavy 7” tablet can last up to 8 hours thanks to its 3,780mAh battery.
Finally, the 5” LePad S2005 competes directly with the Samsung Galaxy Note and Dell Streak 5. Unfortunately, the tablet only sports WVGA resolution (480×800) which results in more blocky graphic presentations. The tiny tablet runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), with the slightly slower 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor and the same 1GB of RAM. Its 5Mp rear-facing camera can capture 1080HD videos and the support for HSPA+ network is certainly a big plus.
