In the early morning hours Lenovo announced a slew of new and improved Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablets they’ll be bringing to the market, and now we managed a few minutes to test them out. The A2109 is clearly a great tablet considering the price and quad-core Tegra 3 but lets go over all the details and hands-on pictures after the break shall we.
The Nexus 7 made it a hard life for a cheap Android tablet these days — but can the A2109 deliver? We think it can. The IdeaTab A2109 is actually available as we speak over at Best Buy, so after seeing a few pictures you might want to run down and pick one up. The A2109 consists of a 9-inch 1280 x 800 HD resolution display (perfect size almost) with the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and more all for just $299. Then the smaller brother the A2107 was out and about but sadly it only gets a dual-core processor. Our sister site SlashGear got all the details.
The A2109 also consists of micro-SD for extra storage, HDMI-out options and and front and rear facing camera. You get everything and more that the Nexus 7 offers for just a few more bucks. Only different here is Lenovo of course, and you don’t have Jelly Bean or the all important “Nexus” name. Now lets take a loot at the smaller tablet.
The IdeaTab A2107 comes with a 1280 x 720p HD display of 7-inches, but sadly they dropped the Tegra 3 in favor of a dual-core Texas Instruments OMAP 4 processor. You’ll still get 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage but that makes this already lose out to the popular Nexus 7. The A2107 however does also come with SD support as you can see in the pictures below, HDMI-out, as well as a 5 megapixel rear camera and VGA front. For now Lenovo is being rather quite on pricing or release date for the A2107 but hopefully they announce something soon. It feels amazing in the hand and offers some of the best build quality from Lenovo yet. Just a shame they couldn’t back in that Tegra 3 still. Stay tuned for more details.
