It’s Not A Transformer It’s The Lenovo Ideapad S2110
I’m not a huge fan of Lenovo anymore. Why? well my struggles with their Lenovo Ideapad k1 is well chronicled it’s a horrible device with horrible support that took a great deal of hacking to get right. Where is it now. On my wife’s side of the bed collecting dust waiting on n ICS update so she can start using it (that’s how frustrating it is to use on Honeycomb). What Lenovo has here is another attempt at an Android tablet. You may remember us mentioning the device when it was shown at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year. The optional keyboard dock will put you in the mind of the ASUS transformer and like that tablet it will give you a boost of battery and USB ports (2 to be exact).
- Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060A chip
- 1.5 GHz dual core processor
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
- 1GB of RAM
- 16 to 64GB of storage
- Bluetooth 4 and 5
- optional 3G model with GPS
- 1280 x 800 display
- 1.3 megapixel cameras (front/rear)
- 3 in 1 SD card reader
The tablet will run you either $343 and or $375 for the 16 or 32 gb respectively and is available on Lenovo’s website. The optional keyboard is the clincher here it only cost $56 bucks. Since the tablet comes with ICS I can’t in good faith recommend it if you are expecting jellybean in the near future with my own personal experience with Lenovo’s Android products. The company is raking in the doe in the PC market but lets face it the the Android arm of the company is an experiment and they still don’t seem very skilled at managing the complexities of Android from pushing out relevant and timely updates, to official market support, to releasing devices that aren’t so frustratingly buggy you want to throw them at the wall. Perhaps this one is different but for your hard earned money its a helluva risk to take. Want a tablet? Get a Nexus 7 and save yourself a headache.
