Lenovo IdeaTab S2110A Series Tablet & Keyboard Dock Review
17 April 2014
Summary: With its workstation capabilities, is a tablet of this size worth the price tag or is it better to just get yourself an ultrabook or laptop for a little more? That is one decision you will have to make on your own, but if you are going for a tablet than this one does not disappoint.
Conclusion: When compared to other tablets on the market, the Lenovo IdeaTab S2110A is geared more to the business professional or student that is looking for an Android tablet to use while on-the-go, and have the benefit of a physical keyboard that can be easily added or removed at will.
Pros: Solid construction, Good performance with Snapdragon dual-core processor, Optional physical keyboard with extra battery power and SD card slot
Cons: Display isn’t good enough in this price range, Camera and video quality is lacking, Lacks any 4G connectivity
Conclusion: Lenovo offers the IdeaTab S2110A as a midrange slate. Considering the competing products you can get for not much more money (such as the aforementioned Transformer Pad TF300, which is just an all-around better device), this one makes much more sense at about $299 for the slate alone—or even a bit...
Pros: SRS-enhanced audio, Attractive exterior, Strong performance, A few useful preloaded apps, Decent display
Cons: Construction is too pliable, No storage expansion without extra-cost keyboard dock, Considerable screen distortion when flexed, Short battery life
Summary: Thinnest in its category. The IdeaTab S2110 is one of the thinnest and lightest amongst its 10.1-inch peers, complete with a dual-core Qaulcomm CPU and even a docking station for keyboard and touchpad support.
Pros: Bright IPS display, Extremely thin and lightweight, Great for outdoor use, Classy looks and texture, Good battery life, Keyboard Dock support, The S2110 is a real eye candy with physical features that perfectly reflects its price point.

Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaTab S2110 is Lenovo's best tablet yet. It's slim, light, has an unlocked GSM 3G option and a fast Qualcomm S4 CPU. The IPS display is warm and rich, making it a wonderful movie playback device and the keyboard dock--well, it's just superb.
Excerpt: Looking for a tablet that offers equal parts entertainment and productivity? Lenovo's IdeaTab S2110A may have what you need. This 10.1-inch tablet packs a 1.5-GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM for your entertainment needs and comes with an optional keyboard dock for when you need to crank out a...
Conclusion: The IdeaTab S2110 is the kind of tablet that looks good on paper, but doesn’t quite deliver once you get it into your hands. The main issue is the build quality of the hardware. We’re not completely against plastic construction, but the fact that the tablet literally bends and makes a noise if you...
Pros: Excellent display, Good battery life, Dock adds to productivity for a low price, Well-designed interface skin
