  • S5000 tablet takes thin and light mobility experience to new level

At the 2013 IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin, Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) announced the latest addition to its PC Plus portfolio, the ultra-mobile Lenovo S5000. The device combines a sleek design with intelligent performance and a vibrant viewing experience.

The S5000 makes its mark as one of the industry’s slimmest and lightest premium seven-inch tablets available. Those who crave style and function will appreciate the devices’ laser-engraved fabric-feel surface on the back covers and their attractive side chrome accents.

“Lenovo continues to bring head-turning innovations to the PC Plus marketplace with the Lenovo Android tablet range,” said Graham Braum, General Manger of Lenovo Africa. “With the demand of 7” tablets on the rise in South Africa, we strongly believe the S5000 tablet, a carefully crafted device, unleashes a powerful blend of beautiful and smart technology to improve people’s lives in the country.”

S5000 Tablet: Stay Mobile, Stay Stylish, Stay Connected
Measuring just 7.9 mm, the S5000 is one of the slimmest tablets in the market. It weighs in at just 246 grams (0.246 kg), nearly one-fifth lighter than many of the premium tablets being sold today. Inside this thin and light frame resides plenty of horsepower, starting with a seven-inch 1280×800 resolution, 350 nit brightness and full HD wide-viewing angle display to make it easy to share photos and videos with family and friends.

The S5000 camera gives tablet users an ideal high-definition photo experience. The 1.6MP front-facing camera boasts a sharp high definition experience for crystal clear video chatting while the rear-facing 5.0MP camera takes quality photos and videos and can also scan QR codes and capture photos from long distances.

The S5000 tablet runs on the Android 4.2 operating system (Jelly Bean) and on a Quad-Core Media Tek 8389 1.2 GHz processor and features optional 3G HSPA+ connectivity3. The S5000 relies on its “On the Go” USB port for storage expansion or charging other devices and 3450mAh battery for up to eight hours of non-stop WiFi web browsing or six hours of HD video viewing to keep up with the demands of mobile users.

Lenovo Smart Apps for Secure Sharing and Saving
The Lenovo S5000 come preloaded with custom applications that allow users to conveniently share photos, videos, and documents, protect their device from malicious software, as well as backup and restore important data.

Lenovo Africa recently launched a unique campaign to be the first company to build a unique African Android statue. The campaign is accompanied by a social media competition on Lenovo Africa Facebook page (www.facebook.com/LenovoAfrica) asking Android and Lenovo fans, in South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya, to name the statue. The winner of the best and most creative name will receive a hamper full of Lenovo goodies worth $2,000.

The S5000 will be available in South Africa late November.
