Lenovo has added two new Android tablets to its lineup, and the most interesting thing about them is probably their prices.
Neither has stellar specs… and depending on your needs you might be better off picking up a B&N NOOK tablet or Amazon Fire tablet for $50. But it’s nice to see a major PC maker offering Android tablets at competitive prices.
The $80 Tab 7 Essential features a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a MediaTek MT8167D quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. Lenovo says the tablet offers up to 20 hours of battery life.
Lenovo’s $100 Tab 7 has a higher-resolution 1280 x 720 pixel display and a l MediaTek MT8161 quad-core chip. This model is said to offer up to 15 hours of battery life.
Both tablets have front and rear cameras, but the cheaper model has 2MP fixed-focus cameras on both sides, while the higher-priced model has a 5MP rear camera with autofocus and a 2MP camera on the front.
Both tablets also supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.
