With their growing success in the Computer devices manufacturing sector, Lenovo is apparently focusing more on the handset and “phone tablet” or “phoneblet” sector. Lenovo’s new addition includes an Android Gingerbread powered Smartphone and 3 new devices called LePad Slates. The LePad slates are the most intriguing among all the above. The Slates are also Android powered devices.
The Lenovo LePad Slates are named as LePad S2005, LePad S2007, and LePad S2010. Lenovo took care not to reveal too much information about the slates, probably wishing them to be quite overwhelming for gizmo buffs.
But they did expose a few details. Lenovo LePad S2005 is pretty awesome in looks and style. It’s so attractive, to leave a true gizmo lover with his mouth wide open with awe. It has a 5 inch LTPS touchscreen display with an amazing capability – a viewing angle of 178 degrees.
But there is something disappointing in S2005. With all the classy looks and cool screen, the screen resolution is WVGA. This is a one big reason enough for people to remove the LePad S2005 from their “must-buy” list. But besides this let-down, S2005 works pretty fast with a Scorpion 1.2 GHz Dual Core processor.
This slate or “phoneblet” is 9.95mm slim and offers a memory of only 1GB. The primary 5 MP camera is pretty cool with its 1080p HD video recording feature and the 1.3 MP secondary camera won’t disappoint the user. Equipped with micro USB and micro HDMI ports, LePad will soon be out for sale but no word on its price tag yet.
LePad S2007 and LePad S2010 are the most interesting of the three. These two devices offer great performance with the Android Honeycomb version Operating System.
Although they both run in the same Operating system, the dimensional measurements and the weight of both the slates are different. The S2007 and the S2010 owes their fast performance factor to the 1.5 GHz Scorpion Dual Core processor.
The 9.7mm long LePad S2007 gets the juice for long hours from a decent 3780 mAh battery and the slate weighs around 360 grams. The LePad S2010 is the bigger brother with a thickness of 9.9mm and weight of 670 grams.
The S2010 offers greater battery efficiency with its monster 7560 mAh battery. The S2007 sports a 7 inch display and the S2010 has a 10 inch sleeker than the sleekest kind of display. But both the IPS displays have the same 1280 x 800 pixels resolution and a RAM memory of 1 GB.
The camera specifications are same too – 8 MP primary and 1.3 MP front camera. Lenovo hasn’t let out a word about the price of the slates in India but there are rumors that the S2007 and S2010 will feature an OS upgrade to Android v4.0 Ice-cream Sandwich which is due, to be released.
