Lenovo has come up with two new low-cost tablets after announcing a series of new laptops at the recent CES event.
Lenovo has introduced two new tablets, the Lenovo Tab 2 A7-10 and the Tab 2 A7-30. The company had recently also introduced a series of new laptops in its Toga and ThinkPad devices lineup at the biggest electronic showcase event this year.
Lenovo’s new tablets are both of the same size of 7 inches with a screen resolution of 1024X600 pixels. The tablets will offer a pixel density of 170ppi, the company announced. Both the devices will be running the Android version of KitKat 4.4. But whether they could be updated to the next Lollipop version or not, is not yet confirmed. Both the devices offer RAM of 1 GB, to enable enough space for multitasking.
There are some differences in the configuration of the two devices, which make them come at different price ranges. The Lenovo Tab 2 A7-10 is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT8127 while the other tablet supports a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT8382 processor. This is the chief feature that accounts for a difference in the costs of the two new devices, making the former tab less expensive of the two. Apart from this, Tab 2 A7-10 is equipped only with Wi-Fi connectivity.
There are some other differences like storage spaces of 8GB and 16GB in the cheaper and more expensive versions, respectively. However, both can be expanded to up to 32GB via a microUSB. While both the devices have a 2MP front camera, the cheaper version does not a rear camera.
Lenovo intends to release both the tablets in the market as early as this month. The devices are priced at $99 or Rs. 6,300 and $129, or Rs. 8100 for the Lenovo Tab 2 A7-10 and the Tab 2 A7-30, respectively. The company will launch a 3G variant of the Tab 2 A7-30 later in March this year.
