Lenovo’s 9.7″ IdeaTab S2109 Tablet Reached the FCC

A new tablet from Lenovo called the IdeaPad S2109 has been revealed via a set of drawings submitted to the Federal Communications Commission website. The FCC is tasked with certifying functionalities such as GPS, FM radio, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.

This tablet hasn’t been previously released by the company, and no official announcements regarding its specs have been given by Lenovo. Nonetheless, leaks online claim that the tablet is equipped with a 9.7-inch IPS display with an non-widescreen aspect ratio of 4:3, as supplied by the manufacturer Chi Mei.

The aspect ratio and resolution are like what are found on the iPad. However, it may pose issues when watching movies that have a different aspect ratio.

The device is also likely to have a dual-core TI OMAP processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as its OS. Its power will come from a 2.5A input at 5V requirement for charging, which could mean that the tablet comes with a 12.5 W adapter that gives a shorter charging time. Also onboard are microSD card slot and four SRS-ready speakers.

The tablet is expected to be unveiled in April 2012. It joins the line up of Lenovo tablets already out in the market, including the IdeaPad K2, and the three models of the LePad, the S2005, S2007 and S2010. The IdeaPad S2109 could be a next-generation model of any of these devices or even simply a variant with regard to display size.

The price of the IdeaPad S2109 will possibly be around $500.
