Lenovo has added two new Android tablets to its lineup, and the most interesting thing about them is probably their prices.

The Lenovo Tab 7 Essential is now available for $80, while the Lenovo Tab 7 sells for $100.

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.

  1. Lenovo did a lot of good on the $100 Tab 7 – front firing speakers, 15 hours of general use, Android 7, decent resolution… all at 9 ounces. Major failing here is the 1gb of RAM and they aren’t clear about headphone jacks.

    Personally don’t like the 16:9 aspect ratio. It’s like they started to build a phone/phablet and decided to kill the phone features. I’d love a phone at 7″ with a 16:10 aspect ratio. If you’re going to go large – go large! I’d pick up the phone version of this with a 16:10 aspect ratio, 2gb-3gb of RAM and a microSD slot.

  2. Waited forever and a day for them to make the new 8 and 10 (and plus models of each) available in the states. When they finally got here, just recently for most of them, they were more expensive than originally announced and came with reduced specs compared to their international models.
