Lenovo opens orders for IdeaTab A1000, A3000 Android tablets
Lenovo has put up a pair of Android tablets from its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287123==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/01/07/docking.convertible.lenovo.notebooks.impressive/" rel='nofollow'>IdeaTab</a> range up for pre-order in the United States. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287124==http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/tablets/ideatab/a-series/a1000/" rel='nofollow'>IdeaTab A1000</a> and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287125==http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/tablets/ideatab/a-series/a3000/" rel='nofollow'>IdeaTab A3000</a> both offer 7-inch 1024x600 displays, run on Android Jelly Bean, and have relatively similar specifications, the A3000 adds to the 0.3MP front webcam by having a 5-megapixel counterpart on the rear. <br />
<br />
The A1000 uses a 1.2GHz dual-core MediaTek MT8317 processor with 1GB of RAM, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287126==http://www.unwiredview.com/2013/06/05/7-lenovo-ideatab-a1000-and-a3000-tablets-get-priced-for-the-us-starting-at-just-149/" rel='nofollow'>while</a> <em>Unwired View</em> notes the more expensive A3000 oddly uses a single-core MT6575 clocked at 1GHz. Both also provide Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 16GB of storage, and a microSD card slot, but even though both have the same 3,500mAh battery, the A1000 is said to work for eight hours but the A3000 will work for only seven. <br />
<br />
A third tablet on the website, the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287127==http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/tablets/ideatab/a-series/a2107/" rel='nofollow'>A2107</a>, is listed as "Coming soon." Using the same processor as the A3000, the A2107 uses the older Android 4.0, appears to have an option for 3G connectivity, and has a two-megapixel camera on the rear, but shares a number of core specifications with the other two tablets.<br />
<br />
The IdeaTab A1000 and A3000 are on sale for $189 and $229 respectively, with shipping set to begin from June 12th.
