Lenovo’s been offering Android tablets for a few years, but the company’s new Lenovo Tab S8 is probably the most impressive yet.
It’s an 8 inch tablet with a 1920 x 1200 pixel display, an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor, and a starting price of $199. In other words, it’s about the same size and price as an Asus MeMO Pad 8 and has the same processor… but it has a higher-resolution display.
The Lenovo Tab S8 features an Intel Atom Z3745 quad-core processor, an IPS display with 10-point multi-touch input, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.
It runs Google Android 4.4 KitKat, features 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 and Lenovo plans to offer a model with 3G and 4G LTE connectivity in some markets.
The tablet has an 8MP rear camera, a 1.6MP front-facing camera, and a 4290mAH battery for up to 7 hours of run time. There are stereo front-facing speakers.
It measures 8.1″ x 4.8″ x 0.31″ and weighs about 10.5 ounces. The Lenovo Tab S8 will be available in black, white, blue, and yellow — although not all colors will be available in all regions.
There are a few things you won’t find on this tablet.
It doesn’t have a microSD card slot. And it doesn’t have HDMI output.
Update: It turns out the tablet actually does have a microSD card reader.
Still, priced at $199 this tablet is cheaper than an Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 or a Google Nexus 7 (2013) tabelt, but based on my experience with Android tablets featuring Atom Z3745 processors it should be at least as fast.
How is Lenovo’s android? With Google going over the top in the volantis I might be going intel this time round
Lenovo should make Windows version of this with same specs and price.
