Lenovo unveils budget tablets aimed at cash-strapped consumers

Lenovo has unveiled not one but FOUR new tablets that are all aimed at those on a tight budget, which is great news for cash-strapped consumers who desperately want a tablet device but just couldn’t justify (or even pay for) an iPad.

The four new devices unfortunately don’t have names as appealing as Lenovo’s Yoga just yet, the A7-30, the A7-50, the A8 and the A10 slates are all expanding on the Chinese company’s A-series range and run on Android OS – but there are no official details on which version at the moment.

The A7-30 and A7-50 both have a 7″ display, the A8 has an 8″ and the A10 has a 10″. All of them have quad-core processors and Dolby front speakers. The A7-30 is the only one with a standard display and no camera, but the rest have a HD display and cameras on the front and the back.

From Lenovo’s official release it’s clear the smaller A7-30 is for those who are looking for a super compact device who want decent sound quality, the A10 is for watching movies and TV shows and its bold colour range suggests the A8 is aimed at a slightly younger consumer.

Lenovo VP and head of the company’s mobile business unit, Shao Tao, says the new “tablet family is designed to meet the demands of today’s young, active users who are always on the go, and have lifestyle requirements that are as diverse as their own personalities.”

The tablets are set to be released at some point in the second quarter of 2014 (we’ll keep you posted about exact dates) and for now the prices range from £99.99 for the A7-50 to £169.99 for the A10-70.
