IFA 2013 is in full swing in Berlin right now, in the first day of the event, we’ve seen some awesome products from Sony and Samsung being announced, and today, we’re taking a look at some of Lenovo’s new products. The company have announced new products, covering ultrabooks, smartphones and other accessories, but now we’re taking a look at their new S5000 tablet.

With a name that resembles a Terminator, the new Lenovo S5000 tablet is aiming high, providing top notch features in a slim and good looking body. The slim body owes its stylish look to the laser-etched fabric-feel surface that is on the back of the device, as well as to the chrome accents that can be found on the device.

Technical specs for the Lenovo S5000 Tablet

Beneath the S5000’s sleek outer shell, resides a lot of power. Even though the tablet is only 7.9 mm thick, and weighing in at only 246 grams, the developers have managed to cram lots of powerful components in it. Here’s what to expect from the Lenovo S5000 tablet:

  • Processor: Media Tek 8389 1.2 GHZ Quad Core with optional 3G HSPA+

I often wonder, where is technology heading? What do all of these advances mean for us and for our future? I sometimes miss the days when I didn’t know how to use a floppy disk, or how a computer CPU works, but now, until I find an answer to my questions, I’ll keep tracking these advances and show everything I find to those who share my interests.
