The Lenovo IdeaTab S2 Ultrabook-Tablet Computer is a 10-inch tablet with keyboard dock that converts it into a netbook as demoed at CES 2012. It’s the same concept applied in the ASUS Transformer Prime TF700T: World’s First Quad-core Tablet PC.
Lenovo IdeaTab S2 may not be a quad-core device but it’s equipped with Qualcomm 8x60A/8960 1.5GHz Dual Krait processor, a new generation of microprocessors. It’s a more advanced model than the Lenovo ThinkPad 10.1-inch Business Tablet PC.
CES 2012 is the perfect place to showcase the IdeaTab S2 or specifically the S2110, the first in Lenovo’s S-series of slim-type tablets. Compared to the Asus Transformer Prime, the S2 measures 8.6mm thin which is 0.3mm thicker than Prime but it’s lighter in weight, only 580grams.
With its keyboard dock, the Lenovo IdeaTab S2 Tablet-Ultrabook battery can last up to 20 hours of use time while the tablet PC alone last 10 hours.
As announced the at the Lenovo CES 2012 booth, the Lenovo IdeaTab S2 Tablet-Ultrabook Hybrid release date is due in July 2012 but price are not yet revealed. It will be featured Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” OS.
