Lenovo introduced a new member of its LePad tablet family recently, the LePad S2005 "tabletphone." The S2005 is a 5-inch class device, but Lenovo would rather you think of it as a tablet than a smartphone.

Despite its tablet leanings, the LePad S2005 runs Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, a decidedly smartphone OS (though, to be fair, there are many other tablets on the market that run Android 2.3 instead of Android 3.x Honeycomb). Its 5-inch display is has a disappointing 480 x 800 pixel resolution, but it does have a 178-degree viewing angle. The S2005 is powered by a dual-core, 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor and makes do with 1GB of RAM. It houses a 5 megapixel camera on the back and a 1.3 megapixel camera up front, and comes with a 1,680mAh battery. Lenovo has packed a full suite of ports in the S2005's 9.95mm thick and 198g frame, including micro-HDMI, microSD, and micro-USB for charging.

The LePad S2005 has an HSPA+ cellular radio built in, which is compatible with China Unicom's network. Lenovo intends on releasing it in China in the next couple of days, but a price has not yet been announced. The company has also not announced plans for a global launch, but Engadget claims that it will be branded as an IdeaTab when it hits other markets. [via Engadget]
