Lenovo has released three new tablets which are all on sale now online. These are the 10.1-inch S6000, the 7-inch A3000 and the budget 7-inch A1000.
The first tablet by Lenovo, the S6000, is an Android 4.2 Jelly Bean 10.1-inch slate. It comes with a fairly weak 1280 x 800 (149 ppi) IPS display, a quad-core 1.2GHz A7 processor backed by 1GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera with second VGA front-facing snapper, and 16GB or 32GB storage and microSD support. All that is crammed into an 8.6mm thin, 550g shell that supports 3G and costs £200.
The Lenovo A3000 is a 7-inch, 1024 x 600 (170 ppi) resolution tablet with a 1.2GHz MediaTek 8125 quad-core CPU, 1GB RAM, and 5-megapixel camera. This microSD (up to 64GB) supported slate with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is Wi-Fi only and costs £150.
Finally the Lenovo A1000 is the same as the A3000 except for Android 4.1 and support for only 32GB microSD expansion. But it does claim to have an extra hour's battery life at 8 hours total, and costs £110.
This is an interesting time for Lenovo to release these tablets as Tesco unveils its 7-inch Hudl slate for just £119.
