Lenovo unveils three Android IdeaTab tablets
During the recent MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2013, Lenovo announced a new line-up of Android-powered tablets comprising two 7in devices IdeaTab A1000 and A3000, and one full-fledged 10in tablet the IdeaTab S6000.
Making the best out of its 7in portability, both the A1000 and A3000 is designed to bring both performance and its form factor together. At the starting range would be the A1000, a worthy choice for first-time tablet owners especially those who appreciates decent sound quality. Packed with a Dolby Digital Plus sound system and a basic storage of 16GB, the A1000 looks to find a space as your entertainment and lifestyle "pocket studio".
But for the full performance of a tablet in a 7in form, the A3000 should do the job with its highly-competitive specs in regards to other similar-sized tablets in the market now. Powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and up to 64GB worth of extendable memory, it is optimised for the complete tablet user experience and should run fluidly (based on specs). But what may be most appealing would probably be its portability weighing at less than 340g.
Debuted as Lenovo's first Android tablet to compete with the other 'bigger boys' in the market, the IdeaTab S6000, at first glance, looks extremely sleek despite its obvious similarities. This is a full-fledged 10.1' tablet powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, up to 8 hours of battery life, integrated with a micro HDMI port and displays a steady 1280X800 resolution.
All 3 IdeaTabs will be available around May/June while individual country pricings will be announced closer to launch date. Personally, I'm a sticker to 10.1's instead of of 7'in tablets, but what about you?
