About a month ago, we saw Lenovo's previously unknown IdeaTab S2109 hit the FCC, providing a glimpse of little more than the company's new 4:3 tablet. At the time, Engadget's tipster claimed it sported a 9.7", 4:3 IPS display, TI OMAP chip, four speakers, and microSD. Turns out they were on point with all of that (though not about the March launch date, obviously), and today, the company has released an official reveal video for the tablet.
Comes with unibody shell and gunmetal finish. It's 8.9mm thin, has an IPS display for a wider viewing angle and has a 1.3 Megapixel front camera for clearer video conferencing. Comes with SRS Trumedia for an ultimate mobile entertainment experience, Quad speakers for stronger bass, Micro-HDMI, Micro-USB, Latest Android 4.0 Ice-cream sandwich for a smooth interactive interface, 10 hour battery life and much more.
The official description fails to mention the microSD slot and Play Store support that's shown in the video. There's no mention of what specific TI OMAP chip we're looking at, nor an official word on resolution. However, NotebookItalia seems to think it'll pack a 1024x768 display (that's 4:3, rather than the normal 16:10 found on most Android tablets), and will sport 1GB of RAM.
While the specs look respectable (and the "S2109" moniker is certainly catchy), it's hard to get too excited when there are higher-resolution, and potentially more powerful, tablets around the corner - namely, offerings like the quad-core Tegra 3, 1920x1200-packing Transformer Pad Infinity.
