Lenovo Tab 2 A7-10 And A7-30 Announced

Lenovo is refreshing its Lenovo Tab A7 line of entry level 7-inch budget tablets with Android:

Last years Lenovo Tab A7 actually looked and behaved better than expected despite the low specs. The anti-glare filter on the predecessor was something to appreciate.

Now the new 2015 Lenovo Tab 2 A7-10 and A7-30 tablets are refreshed, but they are still low in specs. The specs they have in common are a 7-inch screen, Android 4.4 KitKat, a 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT8382M processor, 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM, a mono front speaker yet still features Dolby Audio, a battery life of 8 hours (3450 mAh battery), and a weight of 269 gram.

Here's a clear breakdown of the reamining specs that differentiate these two tablets:

  TAB 2 A7-10 TAB 2 A7-30
Display 1024 x 600 IPS display 1024 x 600 IPS infinity display
Storage 8GB ROM, up to 32GB Micro-SD 8GB or 16GB ROM, up to 32GB Micro-SD
Camera(s) 0.3MP front camera 0.3MP front camera, and 2MP rear camera
Thickness 9.3mm 8.9mm
Colors Ebony Black Aqua Blue, Cotton Candy, Pearl White, and Ebony Black

The cheapest of these two are naturally the Lenovo Tab 2 A7-10 which have a MSRP launch price of $99 and a January launch time, while the “luxury version” of the two, the Lenovo Tab 2 A7-30 will be launched in March, for $129.

Lenovo's Tab A7 series may have been cheap last year, but considering the kind of specs you get in the $99 HP Stream 7 these days, Lenovo should either increase the specs or lower the price of their own tablets.
