IFA 2012, which has just opened its doors to tech enthusiasts yesterday in Berlin, isn’t just a place to announce and showcase never-seen-before products that have yet to hit the market. In Lenovo’s case, it’s also an opportunity to give an “old” product its moment in the spotlight. Aside from introducing some fresh slates, namely the IdeaTab A2107 and the IdeaTab A2109, Lenovo also took the time to debut the IdeaPad S2110. Wait, isn’t this the same tablet that has been on sale since last month?
Perhaps, Lenovo feels the IdeaTab S2110 deserves a second wind. What better place to garner more press attention than the one event where journalists and consumers alike hunt for the latest and greatest gizmos and gadgets?
At this point, we pretty much know the ins and outs of the Lenovo IdeaPad S2110. But for folks who may have missed the excitement before, here are the specs of the hybrid tablet once more:
10.1-inch IPS HD display
Dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor
16GB/32GB onboard storage
5MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash
1.3MP HD front-facing camera
Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi b/g/n, GPS
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
When we say hybrid, it’s not just a buzz word that serves no real purpose. Like the Asus Transformer series, the IdeaPad S2110 has an optional keyboard dock of its own – one that allows you to get the netbook-like experience when using the combo.
At a mere $399, the 16GB Lenovo IdeaPad S2110 is quite a steal for those in search of a great 10.1-inch tablet that’s already available in the market. If you think you’ll be doing a lot of typing on the tablet, you may want to opt for the tablet + keyboard deal that Lenovo is offering for $499.
