Washington: Lenovo introduces its new A series of tablet to compete against Samsung in tablet market.
Since the beginning of the year Samsung is dominating the tablet market an now Lenovo step up for the competition with its newly unveiled A-series of tablets.
That means we’re looking at 7-, 8- and 10.1-inch tablets, although Lenovo’s gone one better with a fourth in its line-up.
But like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 range, there’s not much to choose between as all the tablets rock a quad-core processor and Dolby-enhanced speakers.
The A7-30 is the lowest-spec tablet in the range, with Dolby-toting dual front speakers, a 7-inch screen and a quad-core processor under the hood, while the A7-50 is meant for those who want to read on the go thanks to its wide-view HD display.
The A8 is, surprisingly, an 8-inch slate, with Lenovo pushing its media nous (Dolby audio, HD screen, quad-core processor) as well as the fact that it comes in a “range” of “bold” colours to “suit different personalities and styles” because you’re all as individual as snowflakes and don’t let anybody tell you different.
Finally, the 10.1-inch Lenovo A10 also rocks Dolby speakers and a quad-core processor for “smooth video playback” although whether it will be any smoother than the A8’s seems unlikely.
If any or all of the Lenovo A Series tablets have tickled your fancy, you can pick them up starting in Q2 (any time from now until the end of June). In the UK, pricing starts at £100 for the A7-50, £140 for the A8-50 and £170 for the A10.
That should equate to around $166 / AU$180 for the A7, $230 / AU$250 for the A8 and $285 / AU $300 for the A10.
