How does a 1.27 pound tablet/netbook hybrid running Android 4.0 ICS sound to you? That’s what you get with Lenovo’s new IdeaTab S2. The lightweight tablet features a 10-inch display and a user experience that Lenovo describes as “flawless”.

Official specifications are as follows:

Processor: Qualcomm 8x60A/8960 1.5 GHz Dual Krait processor

OS: Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0

  • Display: 10.1″ 1280×800 IPS screen display
  • Memory: 1GB LP-DDR2 memory
  • Storage: 16GB/32GB/64GB storage; 64GB ssd
  • Communication Standards: WLAN 802.11b/g/n , BT 2.1+EDR , GPS/AGPS connectivity, Integrated front (1.3M HD) & back (8M+AF+LED+flash) mounted webcam
  • Connectors: 17pin Docking conn.( micro USB compatible ), micro SD, Micro HDMI ,SIM card (only for 3G), 3.5mm Audio Jack, optional keyboard dock
  • Camera: Integrated front (1.3M HD) & back (5M+AF+LED+flash) mounted webcam
  • Weight:1.27 pounds (580g)
  • Dimensions: 8.69mm x 10.1”

Like the Asus Transformer Prime, it is a tablet that also has a very sophisticated docking station that gives users a netbook experience as well. The dock for the S2 features 2 USB ports, a flash card reader, and a secondary battery which Lenovo claims gives the device a total of 20 hours of battery life.

On paper at least the Asus Transformer Prime does have a bit more power under the hood, but with Android ICS and 3G, the Lenovo certainly holds its own.

Lenovo’s success with the IdeaTad S2 versus models like the Prime will end up boiling down to price point and what exactly a user is looking to get out of their tablet. Still, it’s nice to see more and more of these tablet hybrid technologies arriving to the market.
