Announced at CES 2012, the Lenovo IdeaTab S2 is a 10-inch tablet running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The tablet further distinguishes itself with its optional snap-in keyboard dock, which gives it a laptop-like feel and 10 hours of extended battery life.

The IdeaTab S2 is remarkably thin. Here, you can also see how the keyboard dock wraps around the edge of the tablet completely for a secure fit.

The Lenovo IdeaTab S2 comes complete with all of the ports you'd expect from a modern Android tablet, including microSD, HDMI, and headphone output. Married with the keyboard dock (see on the bottom half) you also get an additional HDMI output and two full-size USB ports.

Taken out of its dock, the Lenovo IdeaTab S2 looks and feels like most modern Android tablets. It is substantially thinner and lighter than the Lenovo IdeaPad tablet we saw in 2011.
