The MWC (Mobile World Congress) has just kicked off at Barcelona and Lenovo is one of the first companies to launch their upcoming products. Three new tablets were announced by the company that can be categorized as low to mid-range with nothing really spectacular about them. The company might be targeting the budget conscious consumer and providing an alternative to Google’s Nexus tablets but the specifications just fall short.
First up is the Lenovo A1000 which is a 7 inch tablet with an unconfirmed resolution of 1024×600 pixels. This device is aimed at music lovers as it comes with Dolby Digital Plus technology as well as large front facing speakers aimed at the user. The device uses a 1.2 GHz dual-core MediaTek processor and also includes 16GB of internal storage. The storage can further be expanded using the microSD slot up to 32 GB. It’s going to run on Android Jelly Bean straight out of the box.
The Lenovo A3000 is a 7 inch device as well that comes with a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor and 16GB of internal storage. Storage can be expanded via the microSD slot up to 64 GB. When released in the market it will come in 3G and Wi-Fi only variants. This model will not come with the Dolby Digital Plus technology. The company says that this model is optimized for games, web browsing as well as photo and video sharing.
The last of the three newly announced tablets is the Lenovo S6000. This model sports a 10.1-inch IPS display with 1280×800 resolution. The company is calling this as the “Home Entertainment” center. It uses a MTK 8389/8125 1.2 GHz quad-core processor that can take care of all your gaming and media needs. Another good feature about this model is that it offers 8 hours of web-browsing usage while connected to a Wi-Fi network.
These three tablets are expected to hit the market on the second quarter of this year. Although the pricing has not been revealed yet the company promises that these three models will be priced competitively.
