Lenovo’s Android tablet strategy for the past few years has been focused on mid-range and premium devices with features like big screens and built-in projectors.
Now the company is going after budget tablet shoppers with the launch of the new Tab3 series. Prices start at $99 for a model with an 8 inch display.
Tab3 7 and 8
Lenovo’s Tab3 7 and Tab3 8 both feature 1 GHz quad-core processors, IPS displays with wide viewing angles, 5MP rear cameras and 2MP front-facing cameras.
The specs are kind of barebones: the tablets have just 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. But the prices are pretty good: the Tab3 8 has a 1280 x 800 pixel display and a $99 price tag. There’s also a 4G LTE version that’s priced at $149.
Lenovo also has a Tab3 7 with a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 4G LTE radio, and a price of $129.
Both of those tablets should begin shipping in June.
Lenovo also has a 10 inch model aimed at business users. It’s called the Tab3 10 and it features a 1920 x 1200 pixel display, either 2GB or 3GB of RAM, and either 32GB or 64GB of storage.
It has a 1.3 GHz MediaTek quad-core processor, optional 4G LTE support, and a 7,000 mAh battery. Prices for this model start at $199 for a WiFi-only model and go up to $299 for a model with LTE and 3GB of RAM.
Lenovo will also offer an optional keyboard dock for the Tab3 10.
