Lenovo readying IdeaPad S10-2
Slightly updated spec, 3G model coming
Lenovo is about to launched a tweaked version of its IdeaPad S10 called the S10-2. The S10-2 is not really a huge step forward for Lenovo, as it's generally just a feature tweaked version that addresses a lot of the issues that users of the S10 has complained about.
For starters, the S10-2 is 200g lighter and 4mm thinner than the S10, not much, but enough to make it as light if not lighter than many of its competitors. Other changes include improved audio with Dolby certification, new patterns and colours for the lid, a slightly larger keyboard with a larger shift key on the right side, a larger touch pad and three USB ports.
However, the most interesting part is that Lenovo is preparing a model with built in 3G modem which looks like the winner in our book. Price wise you're looking at US$349.99 (€256/£230) for the standard models and US$399.99 (€293/£263) for the 3G equipped model, which seems like a fair price for the 3G addition.
The standard models should ship this month with the 3G model arriving sometime later this summer.
