Lenovo officially launched the Ideapad S10-2 netbook a few days back. The S10-2 is a 3G enabled version of the current Ideapad S10. However, Lenovo has also improved the S10 in a number of subtle areas including a bigger keyboard and touchpad, a new textured lid design as well as making the S10-2 both thinner and lighter.
Whilst the Ideapad S10-2 is expected to launch in the US over the coming days, we now know that it should be hitting UK shores at some point in July with prices starting from £299. This is a similar price for current S10e models with prices on the official site starting from £289 (for the Windows version). I imagine that the £299 starting price for the S10-2 will not include 3G. We’ll bring you more firm news on pricing as we have it.
If you want to see the Lenovo S10-2 netbook in action then check out the following video from Xavier at GottaBeMobile. The unit that Xavier played with came with a 3-cell battery, but apparently units sold in the US will come with a 6-cell battery as standard with a quoted time of six hours. Whilst only HDD options will be available in the US, 8GB – 16GB SSD options are being planned for overseas markets.
