Allen Ngo,

After a slew of notebook announcements from Lenovo, the Chinese manufacturer went one step further still by revealing its latest tablet ahead of CES.

Called the IdeaTab S2, the Android ICS tablet will succeed the IdeaPad S1 but include a similarly-sized 10.1-inch screen with an optional keyboard and trackpad docking station. The S2 is expected to run on a dual-core Snapdragon CPU based on the Krait architecture with 1GB RAM1280x800 resolution display, 16GB to 64GB SSD, front-and-rear cameras and 3G connectivity options. According to Android Central, Lenovo will be using their proprietary “Mondrian” UI on top of the Android 4.0 interface.

The docking station in particular will supposedly add additional connectivity options such as USB 2.0, card reader and extra hours of battery life.

Pricing and launch dates are still behind curtains, but expect the IdeaPad S2 to make an appearance at CES this week in all its glory.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
