Now earlier today, Sprint made big news by announcing that the Galaxy Nexus will land on April 22! Sprint has just unleashed the Lenovo IdeaPad S205S Mini Notebook. As expected it running on Sprint’s 3G/4G Network, not 4G LTE instead you get 4G WiMax. It comes in at $199.99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate with 2-year contract. If you want it, it is available immediately from www.sprint.com . The IdeaPad S205S mini notebook features a Intel Pentium dual-core U5600 processor, 11.6-inchHD LED widescreen display, 250GB HD, 2GB DDR3 Memory, 6 x1 card reader, Stereo Speakers, 2 USB ports, HDMI port, eSATA port, 1 microphone jack, 1 headphone jack, VGA port, Microsoft Windows 7 Home premium (32 Bit), Multi-Touch trackpad, Lenovo OneKey Rescue system, 6 cell-4400 mAh battery (5 Hours Estimated), WiFi, 3G/4G WiMax, and much more. Overall, for the price it does not seem like a bad deal. Keep in mind that you are locked into a 2-year contract with Sprint. So make sure that they have good connectivity in your area, and hopefully once their 4G WiMax network is phased out they may upgrade this device to 4G LTE. However, Sprint has not said anything regarding that. For more info check out the Press Release below!
