Lenovo launches A1000, A3000, S6000 Android tablets
Launched at Mobile World Congress, the Lenovo tablets range from seven to ten inch screens
We're live from Mobile World Congress 2013 and Lenovo is kicking it off by launching a new series of Android-powered tablets known as the A1000, A3000 and the S6000.
The 7-inch A1000 is aimed at first-time tablet buyers, as it will come in at a lower price range than the others. Look forward to a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 16GB of storage that can be expanded with the microSD slot and it comes in black or white.
The A3000 is a bit more powerful, as the 7-inch screen has a 1024x600 resolution and it's powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor that has been optimized for gaming and web browsing. This can have its memory expanded up to 64GB and you can get the option of built-in 3G data.
The S600 is for the power user who wants a larger screen. This has a 10.1-inch IPS screen with 1280x800 resolution, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, microHDMI port, optional HSPA+ modems and a large battery that can last up to eight hours.
It will be interesting to see how these new Lenovo tablets fare in the market, as the company's previous offerings have been middling, at best. I'm not sure how compelling this latest lineup is over the iPad, Nexus lineup or even the Kindle Fire but I'll reserve judgement until I get a chance to really play around with it.
