Lenovo primed with keyboard-connectable tablet
Inspired by Asus?
Continuing the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich theme at CES comes the Lenovo IdeaTab S2, a dockable tablet rather in the style of Asus' Eee Pad Transformer Prime.
The Prime, of course, comes with Nvidia's new five-core Tegra 3 processor. The 10.1in Lenovo IdeaTab S2, however, comes with a plain old dual-core chip, running at 1.5GHz. It also pack in 1GB of Ram, and either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of Flash storage.
The S2 will be made available with a keyboard dock that includes an additional battery - just as the Prime's clip-on Qwerty deck does - extending overall life up to 20 hours.
While it lacks the five-core processing power of its Asus rival, the S2 is slightly lighter than an iPad 2 and measures just 8.7mm thick.
The IdeaTab S2 is available immediately in China and will be heading these ways at a later date. Prices have yet to be announced. ®
Hey! It's the Lenovo U1! (but this time without Windows)
As launched at CES in 2010!
And again in 2011! When it was actually on sale in China!
I would use links to Register stories but somehow you've clearly never seen it before. Everyone else has.
When does William Hill open?!
Not an electronics retailer - a bookmaker. It's their product that attracts me right now. :-)
I am disappointed
As I was waking up and drinking my morning cup of coffee, with eyes still trying to focus, I saw that headline and I thought it read "Lenovo primed with keyboard-connectable toilet."
I am disappointed. That would have been quite a story.
When will these start to come out with proper linux or Windows? I don't want Android, I want freedom to install what I want, change my mind and then install something else.
Hopefully it'll be significantly cheaper than the Asus, I doubt it though.
