Lenovo S6000, A3000 and A1000 Android tablets arrive in Chinaby Gareth Mankoo
Lenovo is taking three Android Jelly Bean tablets to China. With the announcement of these three, there is promise that they are scouting Eastern lands a lot more boldly than they do the rest of the blue planet. First in line is the Lenovo S6000, which comes in at 10.1 inches and offers an IPS display with resolutions of up to 1280×600 pixels. It offers a slimmer being in just 8.6mm and a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, optional HSPA+ and a battery that offers 8 hours of Wi-Fi browsing. Next is the A3000 7-inch tablet that comes with the same 1.2GHz quad-core processor, HSPA+ (optional) and microSD card expansion up to 64 GB. The A1000 contains similar specs, save a dual-core 1.2GHz processor instead of the quad-core variant and the addition of Dolby Digital Plus sound. These are likely to enter the Lenovo Jelly Bean market as worthy follow-up releases to the fairly impressive Lenovo P770 smartphone.
Chen Wenhui, Vice President, Lenovo and GM Mobile BU said, “Lenovo’s latest Android tablet family is designed to meet the demands of a wide range of customers, particularly young, active users who are always on the go, and have adopted the seven-inch form factor as their own. With these latest additions to our tablet portfolio, we’ve created devices that address these customers’ needs, as well as devices for more demanding gamers and multimedia users.” All three tablets will be released in the second half of 2013 at lower prices.
