The US customers can now purchase the Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 – 59346799 7″ Android 4.0 tablet. The price on the market is about $150, making it one of the cheapest tablets by a well known manufacturer.
Lenovo’s IdeaTab A2107, showcased earlier this year at the IFA show, sports a 1024 x 600 4-point touch capacitive screen and a dual-core 1GHz Mediatek MT6575 processor from the ARM Cortex A9 family. The $150 model sold States-side has 512MB RAM, and 8GB of internal storage space, as well as a microSD slot for storage expansion. The tablet supports Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS. The front camera is a 0.3MP one, while on the back (with soft touch finish) the device has a 2MP cam. The A2107 also has stereo speakers, and a claimed battery life of up to 8 hours.
It weighs 1.3 pounds and measures 0.3″ thin.
With these specs, the A2107 is better equipped than all of the ~100-dollar tablets, since they generally have single core CPUs and lack GPS, back camera, Bluetooth, and Google Play app store, which is present on the Lenovo.
In addition to the basic 59346799 model, Lenovo offers on select markets a model with dual 3G SIM card support and 16GB of internal storage.
As you can see, the viewing angles are not so good, since the screen is not based on IPS technology. But, the display is pretty much bright, with its 350 nits brightness.
