Lenovo launches three new tablets at MWC
A1000, A3000 and S6000 Android tablets all introduced at MWC by Lenovo
Lenovo has introduced three new Android-powered tablets at the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona, covering a range of different screen sizes and features.
The S6000 is a mainstream tablet with a 10.1in, 1,280x800 resolution IPS display. It's powered by an MediaTek quad-core processor running at 1.2GHz, runs Android 4.1 and has a battery that Lenovo claims will last over eight hours of continuous web browsing over Wi-Fi.
The smaller A3000 is designed to compete directly with Google's Nexus 7, with a 7in, 1,024x600 IPS screen. It uses the same quad-core CPU, weighs 340g and is 11mm thick. As well as integrated Wi-Fi, there will also be an optional HSPA+ 3G model.
The entry-level A1000 uses a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, but retains the same 7in display as the A3000. It has 16GB of internal storage, with a MicroSD card slot to double its capacity.
All three tablets will include Lenovo Mobile Access, a new service which lets tablets equipped with 3G mobile data connections to instantly get online, without a data plan. Lenovo will foot the bill until the trial period ends, after which customers will need to take out a contract with a network.
All three tablets are expected to launch across Europe from June, with prices starting from €129 and reaching €299 depending on model and specification.
