Lenovo's new TAB 2 Android tablets are both under $200

22

Lenovo has introduced the TAB 2 A10-70 and TAB 2 A8 Android tablets for the budget crowd.

Lenovo is taking the wraps off two new tablets at Mobile World Congress that aim to offer great value for your money. The TAB 2 A10, starting at $199, is Lenovo's 10-inch model with a full HD display, a soundbar built into the back using some new Dolby Atmos speaker technology, and ten hours of battery life. The A10 is powered by a 64-bit 1.5 GHz quad-core MediaTek processor and has 2 GB of RAM. It's 8.9 mm thin and 509 grams, which is pretty good, but unfortunately runs Android 4.4 (for now). There's an 8 megapixel camera on the back, and it will be available in blue or white color schemes when it launches in April.
