Lenovo’s new Android tablets hit the $130 mark (not bad)

Lenovo is bringing its budget A-series line of Android tablets to the United States: the A7-50/40, the A8, and the A10.

All three have 1280 x 800 pixel screen resolutions, as well as the same 1.3GHz MediaTek MTK8121 quad-core processor that is complemented by 1GB of RAM. Onboard storage tops out at 16GB, though it is expandable up to 32GB. You will find a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel camera on all three models, with all three powered by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. According to Lenovo, they will all be upgraded to KitKat, though no timetable was given.

Where they begin to differentiate is with screen size. The A7-50 is equipped with a 7-inch screen, while the A8 and A10 will have 8-inch and 10-inch screens, respectively. Battery size, as expected, increases as you go up the ladder, with the A10’s battery life rated at 8 hours on a full charge. In terms of speakers, however, the A10 packs two front-facing Dolby Audio speakers. The A7-50 and A8, meanwhile, only have one speaker each.

The A7-50 will retail for $130, while the A8 and A10 will go for $180 and $250, respectively. Interestingly, Lenovo made a Bluetooth keyboard meant for use with the A10. You can purchase the A10 bundled with the keyboard for $300.
