Description

The Lenovo A3000 is an affordable tablet with a 7-inch 1,024x600-pixel IPS screen and 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek processor. The IPS screen is a definite advantage the A3000 has over its more affordable A1000 sibling - the screen has wider viewing angles making for a much more pleasant viewing. The device is a bit thicker than your usual tablet at 11mm (0.43 inches), but nothing too thick. The Lenovo A3000 runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as all other newly announced Lenovo tablets. It features expandable storage supporting microSD cards of up to 64GB.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
