Lenovo presented a pair of 7in tablets which are expected to take over the lonely Ideatab A2107 that was launched last year. The A3000 and the A1000 will go on sale in EMEA towards the middle of the year with a starting price of around 129 Euros, over £115.

The A1000 comes with a dual-core processor, the Mediatek MTK8317 clocked at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM, 4GB or 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, a 7in 1,024 x 600 pixels, a 5-megapixel camera, a front facing one, Dolby Digital Plus technology as well as two large front-facing speakers. Lenovo also confirmed that it will run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean like others plus there’s a microUSB port and a 3,500mAh which can power the tablet for up to 7 hours.

The other tablet is the Ideatab A3000, which is essentially a posher version of the A1000. There’s a quad-core processor, the same as its bigger brother, the S6000, the Mediatek MT8389 based on Cortex-A7 clocked at 1.2GHz. The rest of the specs is similar to the A1000 bar the front facing speakers and the fact that you can get access to the internet via an optional 3G HSPA+ modem.

Why not read our review of the Vodafone SmartTab II which is a rebadged version of the Ideatab A2107, a 3G tablet from Lenovo that costs a mere £149.
