There was news around in August itself about the new IdeaTab A2107 tablet from Lenovo was in the making. However, since then there was hardly any information on this tablet. Reportedly, now it has been indicated that the product is set for shipping to US customers. The device is now made available to the US customers by two retailers namely Adorama and B&H photo. IdeaTab A2107 is also being offered in Canada from retailer NCIX. Hence, customers in other countries can expect Lenovo to announce the availability soon.
Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 tablet will ship with a price tag of $149.99 (approximately Rs. 8,500). However it remains to be seen how many customers will get attracted at this price tag since Nexus 7 ships with a price tag of $200 (approximately Rs.10,000) with a much superior resolution and display. But for those having a tight budget, Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 is still the better bet.
For users who are unaware or have forgotten about the specifications and features of Lenovo IdeaTab A2107, the device ships with a larger screen display size of 7-inches which provides a screen enough for watching movies and playing games in high definition. Standard resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels ensures good display clarity. Applications and navigations along with calculations can be done at a faster rate with the help of 1 GHz Cortex A9 processor. Device efficiency is ensured with a 512 MB system RAM and 8GB internal storage. For those users who still think 8GB is much lesser than expected, the tablet offers a MicroSD card slot for extending the data storage capability.
Users can enjoy the complete customization abilities and improved text input with Android 4.0 ICS operating system. There is no word from the company yet on the possible Android Jelly Bean update in the future. Good data connectivity and wireless connection is ensured with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 uses a standard battery capable of providing longer battery duration of 10 hours.
However the new Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 will be facing stiff competition from iPad Mini. Taking in to consideration the pricing of both the products, Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 still has a slighter lead over its rival iPad Mini which features iOS 6 operating system, Apple A5 chipset, 7.9 inches screen display size, 1024 x 768 pixels screen resolution and 1 GHz Cortex A9 processor.
