Lenovo announces 7-inch S5000 tablet

Lenovo announces 7-inch S5000 tablet
We just saw a new smartphone announced by Lenovo, so obviously there has to be a tablet to go along with it, right? In addition to the Lenovo Vibe X smartphone, Lenovo has announced the S5000 7-inch Android tablet. Much like the Vibe X, the S5000 is looking to be slim and sleek, but as you might expect from a 7-inch tablet, it seems as though the S5000 will be aiming for a budget market.

The Lenovo S5000 measures 7.9mm thick and 236g, which makes it quite a bit thinner and lighter than the Nexus 7 which clocks in at 10.45mm and 340g. But, the profile of the S5000 is the main talking point, because the 7-inch display is just 1280x800 pixels, and inside is a quad-core 1.2GHz Media Tek 8389 SoC, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 5MP rear camera, 1.6MP rear camera, and a 3450mAh battery. The tablet will be running Android 4.2. 

The S5000 will be made available in Q4 2013 for €199 (~$262). No word on if or when the device will make its way stateside.

It actually looks nice for a smaller tablet.

Great design, but it's more expensive than the Nexus 7. Media Trek processor? Yeah no thanks.

That S looked like a $ so I read "Lenovo announces 7-inch $5000 tablet." Turns out to be quite the opposite. Worse than the FHD Nexus 7 for more money.

And what has this tablet over the "Asus MeMO Pad HD 7" to cost 50 Euros more? They have teh same specs but the ASUS one is lighter. I wonder what Lenovo is thinking about.
