Lenovo debuted a new slate in India, the A8-50 model, that offers voice call features and multimedia features. It’s priced at $292, which is not exactly an affordable price tag in India, but it should work…


This entertainment based tablet comes with Dolby Digital Plus tech and stereo speakers and it’s up for purchase in 4 color versions. The A8-50 integrates an 8 inch IPS display, a 1.3 GHz quad core MediaTek 8382/8121 processor, as well as 1 GB of RAM. It comes with 16 GB of storage, a microSD card slot that offers up to an extra 32 GB and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean as the OS, with the promise of a KitKat update.

The device integrates a 5 megapixel fixed focus back camera and a front 2 MP shooter for video calls. Lenovo A8-50 also brings a 4200 mAh battery, that should provide 11 hours of usage, according to its maker.
