Those looking for the perfect tablet to suit their entertainment needs might be in luck with Lenovo’s new IdeaTab S2109, which the company unveiled on Wednesday. This slim little number, which measures 1/3 of an inch thin, packs four SRS surround sound speakers, micro HDMI output, and an extra bright 9.7-inch IPS HD display, and it all runs on Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich. And all of this weighs only 1.27 lbs.

With its Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 dual core CPU and 1GB of system memory, the IdeaTab S2109 handles multitasking like a pro. The tablet itself is capable of displaying 720p HD video, but can play 1080p if connected to an external monitor or HDTV using the micro HDMI output. The quad speakers with dual bass should provide excellent sound. The battery promises ten hours of life for browsing the web and watching videos.
