Lenovo has released two new tablets for sale in the US. The IdeaTab series of tablets are being marketed at the budget end of the range, with both models coming in the 7″ form factor, they have launched with Android 4.2 on-board as standard.

The specs on the tablets are very much aimed at the low end of the market but appear to be fairly solid. With Lenovos manufacturing prowess behind them the IdeaTab range should be fairly good quality. The A1000 and A3000 are now on-sale via the Lenovo on-line store.

The 7″ tablet market is quite quickly becoming flooded with quite a few large scale manufacturers releasing tablets in that size, it indeed begs the question of just how many tablets the market can support. The market will however always out the highest quality tablets in a ‘survival of the fittest’ style competetive consumer market. We’ve approached Lenovo Australia about a possible release here on our shores and will advise if there are any updates.

    Lenovo Australia does list IdeaTabs on their website-but look at a A-series tablet page on the Aussie site, it says Ideatab tablets are not avaialbe in Australia.

    So no chance of seeing this new range locally officially, you’d have to import from overseas instead.

    Lenovo Australia doesn’t make the Ideatab tablet range-Android or Windows ones available here at all. We missed out on having the Lynx and Yoga here as an examp


    All these tablets with 1024×600.
    It’s such a deal killer. Whoever is churning these screens out, you’ve got to pump it up to at least 720p. 600 sounds so anemic.


    Dude, that resolution is fine for the vast majority of users. Remember this is the budget end of town. If you want a HD screen, shell out some more $….
