Lenovo just announced two new PC plus devices in the form of 7″ Android tablets to meet consumer demands. The new product line dubbed as the A-series that’s designed to engage the senses will have the A1000 and the A3000 in its roster; both made with a balance of mobility and power.
“œWhile we remain committed to the PC space, we have been expanding into new form factors to cater to today’s breed of young, dynamic Filipino doers who have adopted the mobile lifestyle and have embraced the seven-inch form factor as their tablet of choice.” said Vicky Agorrilla, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines.
If you’re a music lover or movie lover or series lover, the dual-core A1000 is a compelling option. How good is the audio on this tablet? Well, Dolby Digital Plus is integrated into the A1000 and it throws out the sound with a couple of front-facing speakers which equates to a great audio experience for an entry level device.
The A3000 is made for the gamers and video heavy users with its quad-core processor. Designed by maximizing performance in a small form factor, the A3000 has some features that are more commonly seen in larger tablets. The A3000 comes with an IPS panel for uncompromised color reproduction and enhanced viewing pleasure.
We also know how easy it is nowadays to have a couple of SIM cards for personal use, well the A3000 allows you to use them both because it comes with 2 SIM card slots.
Both devices are equipped with OTG or On-The-Go charging support that allows us to charge our other mobile devices. The battery life on both devices also looks great with an average of 7 to 8 hours of WiFi browsing.
The Lenovo A1000 and A3000 Android tablets will be available beginning September 2013 at Php6,499 and Php9,999 respectively.
