Cellular ready

Some versions of the S6000 will ship cellular ready, with onboard HSPA+ wireless. Dubbed "Lenovo Mobile Access," the tablets will allow broadband connectivity out of the box for a limited time. Thereafter, consumers will be asked to sign on to a participating wireless provider.

A little more than a pound (or half a kilo)

The Lenovo S6000 weighs 560g (1.2346 pounds). Not bad when you compare it to the 1.45-pound fourth-gen iPad (with a slightly smaller screen) and 1.33-pound Google Nexus 10.
