MWC: Lenovo launches Android Lollipop Tab 2 A8 tablet

Lenovo unveils first Android 5.0 Lollipop tablet

BARCELONA: Lenovo has unveiled its first Android 5.0 Lollipop tablet, the Tab 2 A8 and alongside the KitKat powered Tab 2 A10-70 and Windows powered Ideapad MIIX 300.

The Tab 2 A8 comes loaded with an 8in HD screen, 64-bit quad-core MediaTek processor, and undisclosed battery Lenovo claims will last eight hours.

The Tab 2 A8 supports 4G connectivity and features a basic 5MP rear camera, 32GB of internal storage that can be upgraded via its microSD card slot and custom Dolby Atmos audio.

The Lenovo Tab A8 is set to launch in select regions in June with prices starting at $129.

The use of Android 5.0 Lollipop will prove a key selling point for the Tab 2 A8.

Launched on Google’s flagship Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 devices in October, as we noted in our review, Android 5.0 Lollipop is a milestone update that adds several key features and services.

Key additions include a reworked Material design and notifications system, improved encryption and a custom SELinux enforcing mode.

Lollipop also means the Tab 2 A8 will be compatible with Google’s newly launched Android for Work mobile management solution.

The larger end Tab 2 A10-70 will launch running Google’s older Android Kitkat software and will feature a 10.1in 1920×1080 screen, LTE support, 8MP rear-facing camera and a quad-core MediaTek chip.

The Lenovo Tab 2 A10-710 will be available in April priced at $199.

In a sideways move the 8in Ideapad Miix 300 will run using Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 software and be powered by an undisclosed Intel Atom processor. The Ideapad Miix 300 will launch in July priced at $149.
