Lenovo has unveiled three new Android tablets at IFA 2012, in Berlin, and we've had the chance to try them out for ourselves. All three tablets run Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, along with some additional UI customizations from the manufacturer.

First up is the 10-inch Ideatab S2110, a keyboard-and-tabet dock set similar to the ASUS Transformer series. Inside the S2110 is a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU running at 1.5GHz, backed up by 1GB of RAM. That's billed as a "premium entertainment tablet," and as such packs HDMI output capable of pumping out images at up to 1080p resolution.

Next come the Ideatab A2107 and A2109 -- mid-range offerings aimed at a lower price point. The A2109 is based around NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 chipset, while Lenovo wasn't disclosing the CPU inside the A2107. Both devices sport a more curved chassis with smoother edges, though the software is consistent with the Lenovo's larger tablet. We noticed a few performance and stability issues with these two tablets on the show floor, but we'll put that down to the presence of pre-release hardware and software, and we imagine both will be polished up before the eventual release.

We've got hands-on video up top and more photos of all three products after the break.

Hands-on with Lenovo's new Ideatab Android tablets at IFA 2012


"Eventual release?" The A2109 has been available at BB here in the States at since last week at least. And I think I saw the 2107 there even earlier. From the brief time I spent with both units, the hardware and software looked very much production-ready (the 2109 in particular had very nice build quality-a shame about its dismal screen).

Someone bit! I read about it in the company news feed while I was at work today. Although I don't recall if they had the exact model, it was stated that Lenovo was releasing a new tablet using our Atom SoC. The dual-core version can't be released soon enough...

I Noticed that Amazon already has them listed for sale (at least here in the USA) and they are marked as in stock.

$388 shipped for the s2110, seems like a pretty good deal.

"The A2109 is based around NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 chipset"... according to their datasheet, it's a Dual Core TI 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor.

The display resolution is a bit disappointing, especially for the 10.1" (it's 10.1 and not 10).
