The tablet is slated for an initial launch in China over the next few months. International launch dates, while expected, have not yet been confirmed by Lenovo.

In addition to the IdeaTab K2, Lenovo debuted its 10-inch IdeaTab S2-10 tablet, which measures 8.69 mm thick and weighs in at 1.27-pounds. The device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8960 dual-core 1.7GHZ CPU and runs Android 4.0.



The tablet - which is capable of rendering images at 1280x800-pixel resolution - includes a front camera (1.3MP) and a 5-megapixel rear camera, two USB ports, 3G, up to 64GB storage, an optional keyboard/dock and a whopping 9 hours of battery life.

The IdeaTab S2-10 should hit store shelves during the second quarter of 2012 at an unspecified price point.
