Lenovo IdeaTab S2: This Transforming Ice Cream Sandwich Tablet Is a Beauty

By Adrian Covert on at

Asus isn't the only one who gets to have transforming tablet fun. Lenovo just joined the party with their 10.1-inch, Ice Cream Sandwich-equipped IdeaPad S2, complete with all the versatility, speed and power you could ask for from a tablet, and then some.

The IdeaPad S2 runs on Qualcomm's 1.5 GHz dual-core Krait chipset, has a gig of RAM, and up to 64 gigabytes of storage. When standing alone as a tablet, it weighs only 1.27 pounds and is only 8.7 millimetres thick. When you dock the tablet, it gains an extra 10 hours of battery life (on top of the 10 hours it already has), 2 USB ports, and a card reader. And judging from the image, it's pretty easy on the eyes. Granted, this is a render, so the actual thing could come out looking a bit less striking, but hopefully that's not the case.

The IdeaPad S2 is being billed as a China exclusive for now, Lenovo says they'll announce worldwide release plans at a later date. [Lenovo]
