Lenovo’s Yoga tablet 10 is an aluminum beauty, priced at around $350, which makes it alright for a tablet, but not a budget tablet. Last week, Lenovo jumped on the budget tablets bandwagon and released three cheap tablets, the Lenovo A Series tablets: the TAB A7, A8 and A10 – three Android tablets that are not going to make a hole in your wallet.
Lenovo A Series Tablets
Lenovo’s Android tablet portfolio always lacked a real budget series. Now, the new Lenovo A Series tablets are filling that void and doing a pretty good job too. The tablets are obviously focusing on value rather than state-of-the-art performance or even features. Let’s take a look at the three Lenovo A Series tablets and see what they’re capable of!
The Lenovo A7-50 is the smallest of the three Lenovo A Series tablets with a display of only 7 inches; it is IPS and has 1,280 x 800 pixels. It has a quad-core MediaTek MTKK8121 processor, which boasts 1GB of RAM and a cool 16GB of internal storage. It also has a Bluetooth 4.0, a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing one. The company markets the Lenovo A7-50 as the on the go reading companion, so don’t expect to be able do much than browsing the internet, reading and sending emails and maybe playing some not-too-complicated games. The A7-50 will cost $129 and it will begin shipping in May 2014.
The Lenovo A8 has an 8-inch IPS display and the same resolution as the A7, 1,280 x 800 pixels. Other than that, it has absolutely the same identical technical specifications as the Lenovo A7: the MediatTek processor, the 1GB of Ram and the same front and rear facing cameras. The A8 will be priced at $179 and it will hit the stores at the same time the A7-50 will, in May of this year.
The Lenovo A10 is the largest of the three and it features a 10-inch display with the same 1,280 x 800 pixels as its sister tablets. When it comes to large tablets, the A10 falls behind with the display, but we need to remind ourselves that this is a budget tablet. Other than that, it has the same cameras, speakers and processor as the two smaller Lenovo A Series tablets. The A10, the largest tablet of the bunch, will cost $249. Have the money ready in May, when all three tablets will start shipping.
The Lenovo A Series tablets are some of the most affordable Android tablets from an established producer. Are you excited about these three tablets? Thinking about buying one? Share your thoughts with us in the comment section below.
