first_imgWhile I wasn’t sure whether to consider the recently-leaked 5-inch Lenovo 2005S a phone or tablet, the company itself has now straightened things out. The 2005S is officially a LePad tablet, and it’s one sale now in China for just $415.That’s a converted price, but when you compare the 2,699 Yuan 2005S price to the contract-free price of the iPhone 4 when it launched in China (4,999 Yuan), it’s pretty clear that Lenovo has aggressively priced the diminutive tablet. It’s an ever bigger steal compared to the same-sized Samsung Galaxy Note, which is available from Amazon UK for about £590 (roughly $920).What would you be getting if you shelled out those 400-plus Benjamins? A dual-core Qualcomm MSM8260 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, 1.3MP rear and 5MP front-facing cameras, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth support, a 5 inch LTPS capacitive touchscreen, and CDMA/HSPA+ connectivity. Even with that huge assortment (or tiny, depending on what kind of gadget you’re classifying the 2005S as), it still weighs in at just 198 grams.Despite the fact that Lenovo is calling this a LePad, it’s shipping with Android 2.3 — not the tablet-friendly Honeycomb or freshly-pressed Ice Cream Sandwich. It’s probably safe to assume that an ICS update will be on the way soon, but there’s no official word yet. There’s also no word on when or if the 2005S will be available outside Lenovo’s stomping grounds, but if you’re looking for a sweet deal on a device that blurs the phone-tablet line, now might be a good time to cross your fingers.Gizchina via TechCrunchlast_img
