Lenovo has created three new consumer tablet choices: a pair of A Series Android tablets, the Lenovo TAB 2 A8 and A10-70, and a Windows tablet, the ideapad MIIX 300. The TAB 2 A10-70 features a 10.1-in FHD screen, Dolby Atmos sound technology and a multi-speaker soundbar. At only 8.9mm thin and just 509 grams, the new TAB 2 A10-70 fits nearly anywhere. It is running Android 4.4 with a MediaTek quad core processor and ups the performance of its predecessor with LTE connectivity, dual band Wi-Fi and an 8-megapixel rear camera. It comes in two color choices: Pearl White or Midnight Blue.
The Lenovo TAB 2 A10 will be available starting in April with models starting at approximately $199 USD for Wi-Fi models and $279 USD for LTE models.
The TAB 2 A8 is an HD tablet caters to those who want to stay connected at a wallet-friendly price. Starting at $129 USD (WiFi models), the TAB 2 A8 can handle the most frequent personal connectivity tasks, from updating social media to video chatting. Even lighter than the TAB 2 A10-70 at 360 grams and just as thin, the TAB 2 A8 lasts through an entire eight-hour work day without plugging in and features a dual SIM card slot for voice and LTE for data. And like the TAB 2 A10-70, this 8-in tablet packages affordability with LTE high speed wireless technology.
The TAB 2 A8 caters to media junkies with Dolby Atmos and a 5-megapixel rear camera. The TAB 2 A8 is Lenovo's first tablet to run Android 5.0 Lollipop in pure form. Like its bigger brother, the TAB 2 A8 also features a MediaTek 64-bit Quad Core processor. It also features up to 32 GB of storage via a microSD card and comes in four color options: Pearl White, Ebony, Midnight Blue or Neon Pink.
The Lenovo TAB 2 A8 will be available starting in June with models starting at approximately $129 USD for Wi-Fi models and $179 USD for LTE models.
For those who prefer a Windows tablet, the ideapad MIIX 300 offers the portability of an 8-in tablet with the familiarity of Windows 8.1 along with Microsoft Office applications.
The tablet has an IPS WUXGA screen, it is powered by an Intel Atom processor, up to 64 GB of internal eMMC storage, a microSD card reader, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, dual cameras, and long battery life.
The Lenovo ideapad MIIX 300 goes on sale starting in July and will be available via major retailers. Models will start at approximately $149 USD.
