Lenovo unveils 5, 7, and 10 inch Android tablets

Lenovo is rolling out 3 new Android tablets in China. The company has unveiled devices with 5, 7, and 10 inch displays under its LePad brand. If and when the new devices come to the States they’ll probably be sold under the IdeaPad or IdeaTab name instead.

Lenovo LePad S2005

The LePad S2005 is a handheld device with a 5 inch display. It looks a lot like a smartphone… or a Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0, except Lenovo’s model can make phone calls. It’s probably closer to the Samsung Galaxy Note or the discontinued Dell Streak 5 in that respect.

Lenovo’s new 5 inch tablet has an 800 x 600 pixel display with a 178 degree viewing angle and runs Google Android 2.3.5. It has a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 1680mAh battery. There’s a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and a 5MP rear-facing camera as well as micro USB, micro HDMI, and micro SD card ports.

The Lenovo LePad has a 4G HSPA+ radio.

Lenovo LePad S2007

Next in the lineup is Lenovo’s new 7 inch tablet. It has a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display.

Like its smaller sibling, the LePad S2007 has a 1.3MP front-facing camera, but it has a higher resolution 8MP rear camera. The tablet also has a higher capacity 3790mAh battery which is said to be good for up to 8 hours of usage. But it doesn’t make phone calls.

The tablet has micro USB, micro SD, and micro HDMI ports.

The Lenovo LePad S2007 is 0.38 inches thick and weighs about 0.8 pounds. It will ship with Google Android 3.2.

China Unicom will offer a 3G model for connecting to the internet on the go, but the tablet won’t make phone calls.

Lenovo LePad S2010

The LePad S2010 is the largest member of the family, with a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display and a hefty 7560mAh battery for up to 11 hours of run time.

The tablet measures 0.38 inches thick and weighs about 1.5 pounds.

The rest of the specs for the S2010 are identical to those for the 7 inch model. Both tablets feature the same operating system, processor, memory, cameras, and ports.

    “China Unicom will offer a 3G model for connecting to the internet on the go, but the tablet won’t make phone calls.”

    If they install skype or whatever, and use 3G to make a phone call, what is the technical difference?

      1. Data limits may apply.
      2. Carriers may block Skype.
      3. Many consumers may not be aware of/comfortable with Skype.
      4. Voice capabilities are often available in areas that have poor 3G coverage. 
      5. Skype may introduce a slight delay in conversations in some conditions… It’s barely noticeable, but it’s there. 
      6. You’ll end up with multiple phone bills since you have to pay China Unicom and Skype, and SkypeOut rates vary from country to country.

      I love Skype, but it’s not quite a replacement for real cellular phone calls just yet.

    Bah, so it is basically a neutered phone. Was hoping for something more in the Galaxy Player/WIFI area.

    I was interested until I saw the interface they put on it.  I wish they would offer similar tablets that have vanilla android on it.
