Lenovo IdeaTab S2 hands on review
Asus' Transformer had better watch its back now that Lenovo has announced its 10in, dual-core powered Transformer Prime-baiting IdeaTab S2.
Not only does it come packing Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, it throws up an impressive 20 hours battery life when combined with its dedicated keyboard dock. On its own, the tablet gives you 10 hours of usage.
As a standalone tab, the IdeaTab S2 is wonderfully lightweight at 575g and supermodel slim at 8.7mm – so, it's one of the skinniest and lightest Android tabs around.
Its skinny status takes a hit when it joins forces with the dock to transform into a fully-fledged netbook, making it at least a couple of centimetres in depth and adding around 1KG to your man bag.
While that bulky hinge is dangerously close to eyesore territory, it feels reassuringly sturdy – and the textured lid is a nice touch.
We can't help but think this could have been more elegantly designed, though.
