Budget tablets are all the rage. Starting with the lesser quality sub $100 tablets that no one seems to really want to the market verified $200 tablets that the Kindle Fire made popular and is also being supported by the latest, an Android tablet from Google called the Nexus 7.
Now, competition will increase as Lenovo is jumping in by releasing its own budget tablet called the IdeaPad A1107.
The IdeaPad A1107 boasts a 7″ capacitive touchscreen LED display and is powered by 1.0GHz Texas Instruments 3622 (Cortex A8) processor in conjunction with 512 MB RAM and runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
Additional features include a Micro USB port, microSD reader, 0.3 megapixel webcam, Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, and built-in 802.11b/g/n wireless.
Will this compete with the Kindle Fire or the Google Nexus 7? Who knows but those 2 companies have tremendous infrastructure to support the leaner tablets in order to make them more effective for users.
Features like the Silk browser on Kindle Fire which utilizes Amazon’s vast network to provide a better user experience with lesser hardware. I’m not sure that Lenovo can match that at this point but they may have enough of a brand to attract users.
