We already knew it and now we can confirm it, and I don't talk about rumors, I talk about market trends. Tablets and more tablets in the market, hand in hand with brands that have taken a giant leap in terms of power, important manufacturers who have put all their technology on tablets where they used to put it on laptops, a very clear significant data of the steps that the market takes in that direction. Lenovo is now the one who presents us with a solution similar to that of Asus with its transformer range and proposes a tablet next to a keyboard Dock and start forgetting about the laptop. Again, the exquisite design is the line that separates the wheat from the straw. And if that were not enough, with the K2 model, complete the trio of Tablets that already have a Quadcore processor.
Lenovo ideaPad S2:
- 10-inch IPS display with LED backlight (1280 x 800)
- Android 4.0 ICS with Lenovo special Mondrian interface
- Dualcore Snapdragon S4 1.5 GHz processor
- 8.69 mm thick and 580 grams in weight
- 1 GB of LPDDR2 RAM and 64 GB of SSD storage
- 1.3 Mpx front camera and 5 Mpx rear camera
- Micro HDMI port, GPS, Wifi, 3G, Sensors …
- 9 hours of autonomy battery in video playback
- The keyboard Dock, comes loaded with ports and an extra battery: Built-in trackpad, Two USB 2.0 ports, SDHC card reader and 9 hours more battery
It is not a Quadcore, but it has more than enough power not to be left behind. Lenovo's idea is clear, bet as Asus has done with the keyboard Dock and give a portable solution integral to anyone who does not need all those things that still represent a step between laptops and tablets, and if it fits you, you are facing a very versatile machine, with a lot of autonomy, ports, outputs, weight content and design worked.
About prices and availability we still do not have specific data.
Lenovo ideaPad K2:
- 10 ″ IPS screen and 1920 x 1200 resolution (As the Acer A700)
- Tegra 3 Quadcore processor
- 1 GB of RAM (Some sources point to 2GB)
- 8 Mpx rear camera and 2mpx front
- HDMI, MicroUSB, Micro SD slot
- Wifi and 3G connection as well as light sensors, movement …
- 4 Surround Speakers and Fingerprint Recognition
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream sandwich
About prices and availability we still do not have specific data. This Tablet K2 places Lenovo as a brand to take into account. It is true that this model is not precisely thin or with a good weight, although we do not know official figures, yes, its integration with Android 4.0 (in this case there is no Mondrian interface like the S2) is very good, excellent. The long road from the presentation to conquer the user, is the one that is left to Lenovo, we will see if it arrives, or dies along the way like many others, with good intentions, but that deflated along the way. The strategy of resembling Asus and his transformers may work out, or not. What do you think?
