Lenovo have a lot of tablets in circulation, and several of them are ripe for a replacement, especially the Android tablets.
(UPDATE, July: Now listed on Amazon
(UPDATE, April: Lenovo Tab A8-50 Released)
(UPDATE, March: Lenovo IdeaTab A7, A8, and A10 Confirmed)
So two new 7-inch Android tablets from Lenovo have just got their Blutetooth SIG certification, meaning that their existence have been confirmed, even if these tablets have yet to be officially announced by Lenovo.
The 7-inch Lenovo A3500 seems to have specifications like a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU (Mediatek or Rockchip?), 1GB of RAM, optional 3G cellular connectivity, a 2MP front camera and a 5MP rear camera.
The 7-inch Lenovo A3300 meanwhile aims to be a real budget tablet, I mean, 1024 x 600 resolution and a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU is as low spec as it gets for a new tablet in 2014.
But all the other Android tablet manufacturers have similar spec’d tablets, so there is nothing shocking about it. Additional specs that are known are just the 1GB of RAM, and a 1.2MP front camera combined with a 2MP rear camera.
Tablet manufacturers are usually quite slow to get get products on the market, compared to how early we tend to receive leaks on new tablets. So Lenovo IdeaTab A3300 and Lenovo Ideatab A3500 are not likely to see release until March or April at least.
The old tablets that these new tablets could replace, are the Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 currently at $99, and the Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 currently at $159. Both of these tablets were launched in July last year.
