During Mobile World Congress earlier this year, Lenovo showed off their upcoming IdeaTab S6000 to the public. Since that time, we haven't really heard more than a peep about the device... until today. Apparently, the new Android tablet from Lenovo is likely to be launched in the U.S. within a few weeks, because it just landed at the FCC for compliance testing. Here's a quick quote with refresher on the tablet,

The Lenovo IdeaTab S6000 was first unveiled back in this years Mobile World Congress (MWC) exhibition during February, together with a few other new Lenovo Android tablets.

To re-cap the Lenovo IdeaTab S6000 is fitted with a 10 inch, IPS multitouch display sporting a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, offering a 178 degree viewing angle.

The Lenovo IdeaTab S6000 is powered by a 1.2 GHz MediaTek MTK8389 quad-core processor, together with Lenovo Mobile Access, a unique service that enables users to connect instantly “out of the box”. Lenovo explains:

“When customers first power up their Lenovo device, they will see an icon indicating Lenovo as their access provider,”-”Without having to set up a special data plan, they can immediately start browsing web pages, accessing their email and sharing content with friends using HSPA+ 3G access or through WiFi according to their specific configuration.”

Other features of the Lenovo IdeaTab S6000 include 1GB of RAM, and 16 or 32GB of internal storage, with 0.3 megapixel front facing camera for video calling, together with a 5 megapixel rear facing for video and photographs.

Of course, since this is just an FCC filing, no pricing or availability dates have been shared, but we will keep you informed when we find out more.
