Lenovo is fairly new in the tablet business, but it seems like they will become a serious threat in the near future. After the IdeaTab S2109, they announced three more at the IFA event in Berlin, the IdeaTab A2107, A2109 and S2110. The tablets will run on Android 4.0 ICS, which is a bit out-dated, but can still pack a punch.
The IdeaTab A2107 carries a 7 inch screen and is a direct competitor of the Nexus 7. It’s also powered by an MTK Cortex processor, though the clock speed and number of cores are yet to be revealed. Other features include FM Radio, microSD card slot and a built-in roll cage. The resolution of the screen, the price and other details, however, are not revealed yet and we are eagerly waiting to discover them, although this tab will hardly be a Nexus 7 killer.
We got more details regarding the second tablet of the trio, the IdeaTab A2109. As the name suggests, it will feature a 9 inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. It will be powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. The IdeaTab A2109 is also going to have an aluminum body, a microHDMI slot which is a rarity nowadays, maximum 16 GB internal memory and two cameras; one is a front-facing one, and the other a common rear-facing camera. The starting price tag of $299 puts this tablet on the cheaper side, which makes it a great deal for the money.
The last tablet is the IdeaTab S2110. It aims to compete with the ASUS’ Transformer lineup. It packs a dual-core Qualcomm 8060A processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. The screen now measures 10.1 inches and is an IPS display of 1280 x 800 pixels resolution and 420nit brightness. That’s not as impressive as it sounds, though. In comparison the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity(TF700) has an IPS+ display of 1920 x 1200 pixels resolution and 600nit brightness. The IdeaTab S2110 also features a detachable dock, which has a full QWERTY keyboard, touch pad, USB ports, a SD card slot and a doubled battery life. The tablet alone costs $399, but for $100 more you also get the dock.
