It’s that time of the year again when there are more device launches than we can remember, and here’s one more, coming from Lenovo. The Lenovo S5000 is a decent 7 inch tablet with a premium body and decent hardware to carry it through the budget segment. There’s no word on pricing or availability at this point, but we should see it make its way to Asia, Europe and North America in the coming months. The tablet has a soft touch back which Lenovo calls “fabric feel” which adds to the overall look of the device.
The Lenovo S5000 comes with a 7 inch 1280×800 display, a 1.2 GHz quad core MediaTek chip, 1GB of RAM, a 5MP camera on the back with a 1.6MP front facing camera, USB on-the-go, Android 4.2 and a 3,450 mAh battery which is underwhelming for a tablet of this size. In comparison, the relatively smaller Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comes with a 3,200 mAh battery.
It seems like Lenovo has decided to give priority to the look and feel of the tablet over battery life. To make matters worse, the Lenovo S5000 also comes with a SIM card tray for HSPA+ networks. We’re not sure if Lenovo has thought this through, but the customers will certainly have a word or two to say when they realize it won’t even last one day.
