The market for sub-$200 Android tablets is heating up. The Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 can now be pre-ordered at just $150.
These budget tablets can be ordered now on Lenevo’s website, and will begin shipping on June 12. On that same date, a $40 eCoupon on the A1000 will expire, raising the price to $190.
These two models will have much in common. Both are going to have 7-inch 1024 x 600 displays and run Android 4.2. They will include Wi-Fi b/g/n and microSD memory card slots.
The A1000 is going to be built around a 1.2GHz dual-core MTK MT8317 processor and will have Bluetooth 3.0. The A3000, on the other hand, will employ a 1.0GHz MTK 6575 processor and will include Bluetooth 4.0.
