We knew that Intel wouldn’t let Mobile World Congress pass by without at least an announcement of an Intel powered Android tablet. At the Intel stand (booth) they are showing off the Lenovo IdeaPad K2110.
While this new tablet resembles most of the 10″ Android tablets currently available on the market, this one is running the processor formerly known as “medfield” underneath. The Atom chipset in this tablet is running at 1.6ghz.
Lenovo is saying that the Intel chipset will last up to 9 hours, which is comparable to other Android tablets on the market however most folks who have experience with Intel’s Atom chips, know that they are typically power hungry. When Intel introduced their Android reference device at the Consumer Electronics show last month they stressed that battery life would be an improvement over competing devices.
More after the break
The rest of the specs include a 10.1″ screen with a resolution of 1280×800, dual cameras, and micro HDMI, USB and SD. Also, judging by Lenovo’s press images, you can bank on the tablet being heavily skinned. Although the photo directly above (credit: theverge) shows the skin does have a nice cutaway to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
There’s been no mention of pricing or release date, however Intel is going to try and contend for a piece of the Android pie in a big way starting this year.
