Lenovo announced a line-up of new Android tablets. The portfolio will be available in markets globally from Q2 2013. The range starts with two new A-series tablets, 7” devices. The A1000 is targeted atr first-time tablet buyers and features enhanced audio, while the A3000 offers quad-core processing for speedy performance whether for gaming or web-browsing.

Alongside these models, Lenovo also announced the new 10” S6000, which offers extended I/O options, a larger screen and a slimmer profile. Chen Wenhui, Vice President Lenovo and GM Mobile BU said that Lenovo had noticed that 7” tablets are well accepted, particularly by young, active users who are always on the go. So it has created devices that address these customers’ needs, as well as devices for more demanding gamers and multimedia users.

First up is the S6000, Mobile “Home Entertainment” Centre. . Powered by the MTK 8389/8125 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, the S6000 shines as a multimedia and gaming tablet fronted by a 10.1” IPS 1280X800 display with a wide, 178-degree viewing angle, micro HDMI port and digital microphone. The S6000 also offers a number of additions to optimize its performance as a connectivity tool for social networkers including optional HSPA+ and a substantial battery that allows for 8+ hours of continuous WiFi web browsing.

Then there is the A3000 which is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core, MTK processor, the A3000 optimizes the user experience for games, video, photo-sharing and web-browsing, offering seamlessly fluid navigation and highly responsive performance. The tablet, which sports an IPS 1024x600 screen, weighs in at 340g and is 11mm thick. Optional 3G HSPA+ support ensures you stay connected. The A1000, aims to be a sound machine with better audio. It has Dolby Digital Plus integrated into the device and large, front-facing speakers that ensure the sound is directed at your ears rather than the floor, the A1000 is perfect for music lovers and those seeking a “pocket studio” for either music or movies. The A1000 runs Android Jelly Bean 4.1 on a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and has on-board storage of up to 16GB, extendable to 32GB with a micro-SD slot.
