[CES 2012] Lenovo Unveils IdeaTab S2 10″, IdeaTab S2 7″, IdeaTab S2 5″, S2 Smartphone And K91 Smart TV

Lenovo has some neat announcements over at the CES 2012, being held in Las Vegas. They’ve got a couple of Android tablets, a tablet-phone hybrid, an Android smartphone (relaunch, to say so) and a Smart TV which is running on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Right off the bat, let’s get down to check the specs and stuff.

First up, the IdeaTab S2 10″.

Running Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, the IdeaTab 10″ comes with a…well, a 10.1″ display, Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, out of the box, which makes it a tad more cooler than the Transformer Prime, and both can fight it out fairly, given the IdeaTab S2 10 also comes with a keyboard dock, ala the Transformer Prime.

Here are the specs for a quick overview –

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Mondrian UI
  • 10.1″ IPS LCD display, HD (the True version) resolution (1280×800 pixels)
  • 1.5 Dual Core GHz Qualcomm MSM8960 processor
  • 8 MP camera on the back, aided by a single LED, 1.3 MP front facing camera, HD resolution
  • 1 GB RAM, internal memory in 64 GB, 32 GB and 16 GB versions, expandable with a microSD card
  • 3G (optional), Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth, microHDMI and microUSB ports

You can get the keyboard dock separately.

Next is the IdeaTab 7″

  • Android 3.2 Honeycomb (hopefully upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • 7″ display of 1280×800 pixel resolution
  • 1.5 GHz dual core processor
  • Main camera on the back, front facing camera for video calling
  • 1 GB RAM, internal memory (?)
  • 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth

Oh, there’s no keyboard dock for this variant, if you were wondering. But well, if 10″ is something you feel would be a tad too big, you could go for this one. Lenovo is having all bases covered. Nice.

As you can see, the details about the 7-incher are scarce. I’ll update it with more info in a bit.

Now for the phone-tablet hybrid, the S2 5″. Uhm, Galaxy Note, anyone?

Never mind, here are the specs –

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 5″ display of 800×480 pixel resolution
  • 1.2 GHz dual core processor
  • Main camera, front facing video call camera

Details about the 5-incher are even scarce, but I bet this won’t succeed. Lacks in resolution, and most probably, the display is LCD, far cry from the Galaxy Note’s Super AMOLED Plus. Then again, I’ll wait for more information. Pricing..maybe that could be better. Let’s hope so.

Finally, the S2 smartphone. Apparently, it’s the LePhone S2, announced in Beijing, only that this one’s a global version, and comes with updates to the kernel for ‘enterprise’ level security.

Let’s jump on the specs quickly.

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread with S2 UI
  • 3.8″ LCD display with 800×480 pixel resolution
  • 1.4 GHz Dual Core Snapdragon S2 processor, Adreno 205 GPU
  • 8 MP ‘super’ camera, single LED, front facing VGA camera
  • 512 MB RAM, 16GB/8GB internal memory variants, not expandable
  • 3G, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS
  • 1500 mAh battery

The S2 smartphone sounds pretty much like a mid-end Android, and it should get the Ice Cream Sandwich update in all possibility. Something around $150, on-contract (or $350 off-contract), would be a good price.

Lastly, the Asian company, which happens to be the world’s second largest PC manufacturer, has unveiled the K91, an Android 4.0 ICS powered Smart TV. Lenovo aims to “unite three major smart TV functions” with the K91. Video on Demand, Internet applications and traditional TV programs. And, it will be offering custom apps and games via the Lenovo Store, which should be paired with the Android Market (probably a separate section in the Market).

Specs, if you will.

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, plastered with Lenovo’s Smart Sandwich UI
  • 55″ full HD 3D IPS panel
  • Dual Core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor
  • 5 MP camera
  • 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory
  • SRS TruSurround

Pricing, availability etc aren’t known yet, but I augur they will be, in a few days’ time, after the CES is done with.
