Lenovo introduces IdeaPad S10-3T swivelable!
|Lenovo just can’t get enough of reinventing portable devices in snazzy, clever ways. First, they announced the IdeaPad U1, a sexy new splittable tablet / notebook; then followed the Skylight, a new Qualcomm netbook that runs on a Snapdragon processor. Now comes the IdeaPad S10-3T, a swivelable multitouch netbook.
The difference between Lenovo’s IdeaPad S10-3T and other swivelable touchscreen netbooks is in the display technology. Lenovo’s “Natural Touch” panel is not only multitouch, but unlike the competition, it’s a capacitive touchscreen. That means that unlike other netbooks, you don’t actually have to push down on the screen as you do with a pressure-based resistive display: it uses the same touchscreen technology as the iPhone.
The IdeaPad S10-3T continues to impress with its other specs: a 320GB hard drive, four or eight cell batteries, built-in Dolby sound and a high-definition 720p screen. You can also expect the usual hanger-on specs: 702.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G and WiMax are all supported, as well as 2 USB ports, VGA out and a multi-card reader.
