Lenovo has announced three new mobile devices for the Chinese market. The LePad S2005, S2007 and S2010 are the new tablets and phones to represent the Chinese company, but will they meet the mark of their fellow countrymen?
Lenovo has recently unleashed a trio of tablets in China. The LePad S2007, LePad S2010 and LePad S2005 are set to help the Chinese company gain grounds in their own country. In accordance to the data network available in China, all the tablets are WCDMA enabled to access data network via Chinese telco Unicom.
The LePad S2005 is a worthy mention as it belongs to the emerging category of devices that comes between a phone and a tablet, owing to its 5-inch screen, which is similar to Dell's Streak 5 and Samsung's Galaxy Note. It has a Low Temperature Polycrystalline Silicon Display with a resolution of 800 by 480, featuring a 178-degree viewing angle. This phone is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of memory, giving it processing capabilities on par with most high-end smartphones. Other specifications include a 1.3-megapixel front camera, a 5-megapixel rear camera, WiFi connectivity, High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) support and a 1650mAh battery. It is said to come with Android Gingerbread.
The LePad S2007 and S2010 are tablets with 7-inch and 10-inch screens respectively. Each of them possesses a 1280 by 800 resolution In-Plane Switching display with a contrast ratio of 1500 to 1. They run on 1.5GHz dual-core processors and 1GB of memory, with other similar hardware to that of LePad S2005 except for the 8-megapixel rear cameras and larger battery capacities ascending with screen sizes. The Android Honeycomb 3.2 mobile platform completes the package for these two tablets.
