The new 7-inch Android tablet Lenovo Ideatab A1000 will start shipping in the US on July 12.
UPDATED: The new release date is July 14. Lenovo postponed the release date just before the release.

Lenovo's latest tablet runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, works around a 7-inch 1024×600 resolution screen, and is powered by a 1.2GHz MT8317 Dual-Core processor. See price and details in store.

It's also got 1GB of RAM, 8GB or 16GB storage options with microSD card support up to 32GB, and a 0.3MP front camera. The 3600mAh battery is supposed to last for 8 hours on average.

This is a budget tablet in other words. And not the only one hitting the market at this time of the year with this kind of specs either.

The New Acer B1-710 is of a similar breed, and the conclusion is the same for both these tablets.
