The IdeaTab S2110 measures 8.69 millimeters (0.34 inches) thick and weighs 580 grams (1.28 pounds).

The IdeaTab A2109 is a self-proclaimed “optimized entertainment tablet”. It features a four-point 9-inch capacitive touchscreen display using a 1280x800 resolution. This is paired with a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3.
