If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you can remember that it was not long ago that we were feeding you rumors about Lenovo’s 5 inch tablet/smartphone. We are proud to say that Lenovo has officially released the LePad S2005.
Equipped with an Android 2.3.5, a 5-inch 800 x 480 LTPS display with 178-degree viewing angle, a Qualcomm dual-core 1.2GHz chip, 1GB RAM, a five megapixel camera with 1080p video on the back, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, a 1,680mAh battery, a micro-USB port, micro-HDMI port and HSPA+ radio, Lenovo has definitely done a good job of shoving as much as possible into the in a 9.95mm-thick body that weighs just 198g. This tablet should remind you of Dell’s Streak 5. However, Lenovo hopes that they will have much more success with their version.
It is set to release in China on December 1st. There is no set price for the device yet, but if it is anything like the Streak 5, you will most likely have to cough up $350-$450 to get your hands on it.
Oddly enough, with HSPA+ radio and all, Lenovo has chosen to sell the device as a tablet and not a huge smart phone. Do not forget that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is clocking in at 4.65 inches and has been deemed the best new smart phone on the market.
Will you be picking up the LePad S2005? Let us know in the comments below.

The galaxy note is the better buy, I wouldn’t give up my note for anything. But this might for someone trying to break into the big leagues.
I don’t see any mention of a stylus… why would I get this over a Samsung Note? Lenovo does make some nice hardware though…
price is much cheaper by half!!! the functionality is the same (without stylus). a very good alternative a great bang for the buck. i was going to buy the note 2 days ago but opted for this and i was really worried i will regret but so far so good.
