More than just a great idea, the Lenovo Ideatab S2110A

With a tablet, majority of users are looking for a device that is easy to carry and responds fluidly.  The Lenovo Ideatab S2110A is super sleek with its all black casing and textured back.  Its light weight design also makes it very easy to travel with while providing you with the essentials you need in a tablet.  It does have some design flaws however that prevent it from being the top tablet.

The design is very simple.  It has a mini HDMI slot, headphone jack, and SIM card slot on the left side, volume rocker on the right, mini USB on the bottom, and power button on top.  The mini USB on the bottom of the tablet allows you to use the optional keyboard dock for the tablet which adds in several more features such as USB ports, an SD card slot, and its own battery which greatly increases the time between charges.  The back has a 5 MP camera with flash and the front-facing camera is 1.3 MP.

A major design flaw is that because the tablet is light weight, the materials used in the casing feel flimsy.  Even when using the tablet normally, pressure points form on the tablet which cause dark spots, similar to when you press directly on a laptop screen, to form on the screen.  If you are extremely careful, you can avoid the issue, but that doesn’t change the fact that they shouldn’t be present in the first place.

Performance wise, the Ideatab was impressive.  With 1 GB of RAM and a 1.5 GHz processor, it was able to handle movies and games with ease.  Its LCD screen was also very bright and provided for very detailed viewing.  The tablet is running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which isn’t the newest version, but provides for a good experience nonetheless.

Lenovo provides a solid package with the S2110A.  Using the dock is provides for convenient typing and the additional ports and battery life is nice as well.  Although it would’ve been good to have a MicroSD card slot on the tablet for expandable memory, the 16GB of storage should be enough for average users.  Unfortunately, what may end up being a deal breaker for some are the pressure spots that form during use, so it’ll be good to keep that in mind when considering the Ideatab.
