Lenovo has been on quite a roll lately. Despite Apple’s best efforts at targeting the Chinese smartphone market over the last few quarters, IDC’s latest stats show that Lenovo managed to maul the Cupertino company in terms of market share.
Now, Lenovo is making its latest foray into the American tablet market with its IdeaPad A2109 Tablet.
The IdeaPad A2109 Tablet is, for starters, a curious device in terms of physical dimensions. The general trend in the tablet market seemed to be polarized between two screen sizes – a larger ~ 10 inch tablet a la Apple’s iPad, as opposed to a smaller ~ 7 inch budget tablet competing with the likes of Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Google’s Nexus 7.
Lenovo has churned out a tablet that treads a middle ground, with a screen size of 9 inches. The resolution is 1280 x 800 pixels, which may not match the stratospheric standard set by the new iPad’s Retina display, is quite impressive in its own right.
The Lenovo tablet adds in 16 GB of internal LPDDR memory, and has a quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. The standard Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is thrown in for good measure, and combined with a 1.2 GHz processor, the IdeaPad should be a rather speedy bit of hardware.
Best Buy has listed the IdeaTab A2109 tablet for $299.99 in its website, and is also selling the Lenovo slate in its physical stores.
