Lenovo targets the sub-$199 price range with its new TAB 2 A10 & A8 Android tablets
At MWC 2015, Lenovo presented a duo of A-series tablets, targeting a price range between $130 - $199 for the basic Wi-Fi models. The flagship product is the Lenovo TAB 2 A10, a 10-inch slate powered by 64-bit quad-core MediaTek silicon with 2GB of RAM. Its 10.1-inch IPS LCD screen runs on 1080p resolution, and its large 7200mAh battery is up for 10 hours of uninterrupted usage! All that from a tablet that's 8.9mm thick and weights 509 grams. This is also the first Android tablet to feature ATMOS cynema-style sound. The Lenovo TAB 2 A10 runs Android 4.4 KitKat, but it will be updated to Lollipop in June. It will debut in April, costing $199 for the base Wi-Fi model, and $279 for the base LTE model. The tablet will be sold in Pearl White and Midnight Blue.


Next up is the Lenovo TAB 2 A8, with an 8-inch 720p IPS display, a 64-bit quad-core MediaTek 8161 processor with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and a battery life of up to 8 hours thanks to its 4200mAh unit. The tablet runs Android 5.0 out of the box. It's also a Dolby ATMOS 3D-supporting device that's 8.9mm thin, but weights under 360 grams. It has a dual-SIM model as well, enabling both GSM voice and 4G LTE data, so it can be your tablet AND smartphone if you like the idea. The TAB 2 A8 will be sold in June 2015, with Wi-Fi models starting from $129 and LTE models starting from $179. The color options are Pearl White, Ebony, Midnight Blue, and Neon Pink.
