Lenovo is getting ready to release a pair of affordable tablets for price-conscious users. The first of these devices is the IdeaTab A1000 – a seven inch tablet with 4.2 Jelly Bean,a 1024×600 display, 1.2 GHz dual-core MediaTek processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of built-in storage, a 0.3 MP front camera, and a 3,500 mAh battery. It will run for a cheap $149 with a promo code applied. The price without the promo code is $189.
The second device, the IdeaTab A3000, has the same specs as the A1000 except comes with a front and rear camera and a 1.2 GHz single-core processor. There’s not much of a difference between the two devices, the A3000 even loses one CPU core, and for some reason it costs $229. Confusingly, that’s $80 more than the A1000. The devices aren’t available yet, but they should be soon, if you’re interested.
