Lenovo introduced its E Series of tablets, low cost models more than 5 months ago and now they’re back with an US release, at last. The highlight is the Lenovo Tab E10 budget slate, which just became available, priced at $106.
We’re dealing with a 10 inch model here, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 quad core processor and with 2 GB of LPDDR3 RAM in the mix. There’s also 16 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and the above mentioned screen provides a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. The slate has stereo speakers upfront, a 5 MP rear camera with autofocus and a 2 megapixel fixed focus camera upfront.
There’s an audio jack in the mix, a microUSB 2.0 port and a 4850 mAh battery. The slate comes with support for WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 and measures 0.35 inches in thickness. It also weighs 1.16 pounds. Of course one would prefer Amazon’s 10 inch Fire HD 10 tablet but that’s pricier, at around $150. And then again, there’s the annoying overlay on top of Android…
Lenovo’s device is promoted as ideal for kids, it’s got Dolby Atmos technology and runs on Android Oreo.
