More than a month after Lenovo spilled the beans on the price of its upcoming budget tablets, the manufacturer has now made those available for purchase. Make no mistake, these are not your top of the line Android tablets, but they might just be the ones you need if you’re on the hunt for something basic and cheap.
The Lenovo A7, A8,and A10 are the latest addition to the company’s series of A tablets powered by Android. As before, we see here just enough hardware power to keep the show running at an acceptable minimum level, like a 1.3 GHz quad-core CPU made by MediaTek and 1 GB of RAM. All three sport the usual wireless connectivity options of WiFi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0. Data storage differs in configurations, with the A7 starting off with 8 GB and 16 GB, while the A8 has 16 GB and the A10 offers 32 GB. All have microSD card slots in case you need more.
The three tablets differ in sizes, at 7, 8, and 10 inches. Unfortunately, they are all the same in terms of resolution, which at least reaches HD levels at 1280×800. That, unfortunately, means the bigger the tablet, the lower the pixel density. To make up for it, the increasing sizes do also have increasing battery capacities. The A7 has a 3,450 mAh battery that can last it 7.5 hours, the A8 has 4,200 mAh for 8 hours, and the A10 has a large 6,340 mAh power supply to last it 9 hours.
The Lenovo A7 comes in two configurations and prices, with the 8 GB model priced at $129 while the 16 GB one costs $139. The Lenovo A8 gets a price tag of $180 and the large Lenovo A10 gets the highest marks at $250. Lenovo is selling these three A tablets from its own online store, but Amazon is also carrying the A8 and the A10 at discounted prices.
