Lenovo S6000 hands-on

Lenovo S6000 hands-on
The Lenovo S6000 is the most capable of Lenovo’s new Android tablet lineup, fresh off MWC. That doesn’t mean much though - they are all affordable devices.

The Lenovo S6000 features a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels. The display is IPS which means good viewing angles. We weren't impressed with the build quality, this definitely feels like the affordable tablet it is.

Under the hood, the S6000 is powered by a quad-core MediaTek 8389 / 8125 processor with each of the cores running at up to 1.2GHz.

Good news is the tablet that otherwise looks pretty generic is fairly thin at 8.6mm or 0.34 inches. Weight comes at the quite reasonable 1.23 pounds or 560 grams, less than tablets like the 9.7-inch iPad.

The tablet runs on an almost stock version of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with the only slight difference being the addition of custom widgets from the manufacturer.

The Lenovo S6000 release date is set for the second quarter of the year with wide availability across the globe and including the United States.

The resolution is pathetic. Cell phones have higher resolutions than this tablet. Lenovo do you want to be taken seriously? Step up your game!

;Sighs; should really rename this pathetic show Tablet World Congress. Budget Tablet congress, whatever, I just give up on this tablet crap, since when did nondescript tablets or tablets for that matter become more important than smartphones all of a sudden?

MWC hasn't even started yet, brother.

I suppose you are right but aside from the LG Optimus Pro/Nokia Lumia 1000 and Catwalk, there really isn't anything to look forward to that is mind bending or innovative, it really is just more of the same and most of these phones are aimed at emerging markets, hence low to mid range phones/tablets dominating the show. I'll take your word for it and see where this goes

Hopefully we'll hear an international release of the Xperia Tablet Z at MWC tomorrow or Tuesday, perhaps even a slightly modified version (something they have been known to do between international and japan-only products) which is a bit thicker (maybe 1mm) with a larger battery? Although, this is total dreaming for now..
