Lenovo has just announced their IdeaTab S2, a keyboard docking Ice Cream Sandwich tablet set to go head to head with ASUS’ Transformer devices.
Coming in at a familiar 10.1-inches, the IdeaTab S2 is Lenovo’s stunningly gorgeous attempt at a tablet with a keyboard dock. Along with an extra 10 hours of battery life, the keyboard dock for the IdeaTab comes with two USB ports, and a handy card reader. As far as specs on the tablet itself go, it’s certainly no slouch.

Lenovo is saying that the IdeaTab S2 is a China exclusive for now, and they’ll announce worldwide availability sometime in the future.
What do you think of Lenovo’s Transformer challenger? Will it turn out to be a cheap imitation, or is it a full-on competitor to the original? Either way, there’s no denying the thought put into the IdeaTab S2′s design. The render of the device certainly looks good; we’ll just have to wait and see how it performs.
