Lenovo

With the budget-conscious in mind, Lenovo has announced a new trifecta of android tablets focused on work and play.  These A-Series tablets, as Lenovo VP Shao Tao puts it, “is designed to meet the demands of today’s young, active users who are always on the go, and have lifestyle requirements that are as diverse as their own personalities.”

Pricing starts out low, but there is a good reason for that.  Starting at $129, these tablets don’ t come off as top spec’ed powerhouses.  The specs are modest at best with MediaTek quad-core processors and 1GB of RAM under the hood.  The tablets’ will also sport 4.2 JellyBean at launch.  Rounding out the specifications is 16GB of onboard storage, front and rear cameras and 1280X800 displays.

The new Lenovo tablets will debut in May and come in the 7, 8, and 10 inch varieties with the 7 inch tablet focused on reading and web surfing, the 8 inch dedicated to media consumption, and the 10 inch designed for work and relaxation.
