Lenovo has introduced the TAB 2 A10-70 and TAB 2 A8 Android tablets for the budget crowd.
[custom:mwc15] 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.
Then there's the smaller 8-inch brother, the TAB 2 A8. It starts at $129, with an LTE model available for another $50. It has 8 hours of battery life and a 5 megapixel camera on the back. Tucked inside the A8 is a 1.3 GHz 64-bit quad-core MediaTek processor and 1 GB of RAM. The LTE-enabled A8 will have dual-SIM support for both voice and data when it launches in June. On the upside, it will be running Lollipop, and be available in white, black, blue, or pink paint jobs.
Both will be coming to North America at some point, seeing as they have dedicated spec sheets for North American models of the A10-70 and A8. For those interested, Lenovo announced a budget Windows tablet at MWC as well. How many of you guys are in the market for a cheap tablet?
