MWC 2016: Hands-On With Lenovo’s TAB 3 Line

February 23, 2016 - Written By Tom Dawson

Many might know Lenovo as a straight up PC and Laptop manufacturer, but they’ve been in the mobile arena for some time now. While they might have gotten a big shot in the arm thanks to their purchase of Motorola last year, they’ve been doing just fine on their own. One area that they’ve been particularly strong in is Android tablets, especially in the low-end or budget part of the market. During Mobile World Congress, the Chinese company has announced a trio of new devices under their new TAB 3 line. Here, we’ll be taking a look at them as they’re presented on the show floor in Barcelona, Spain.

Starting with the TAB 3 7 and TAB 3 8, these will be familiar to anyone who’s spent much time with a standard Android tablet. Both the TAB 3 7 and TAB 3 8 are incredibly cheap devices, starting at $79 and $99, respectively. Of course, for that sort of money, the 12800 x 800 standard display and 1.0 Ghz processors are to be expected. Lenovo is hoping to offer value elsewhere however, with the inclusion of kids modes and smart display technology that promises to be kinder on your eyes. Those interested in some affordable 7-inch and 8-inch tablets can take a look at the gallery below, and read on for something a little bigger.

The Lenovo TAB 3 10 was announced at the same time, and is designed for those looking to use the device for business as well as pleasure. Lenovo is promising a tablet that’s a little more rugged and one that will support a wide range of peripherals over USB on-the-go. This version of the TAB 3 features a Full HD display and 2GB of RAM as well as a faster quad-core CPU. At $199, this isn’t as affordable as the other two, but for smaller businesses out there, a tablet like this to use on the shop floor or for light computing tasks makes a lot of sense. Besides, a lot of people will be familiar with Lenovo’s brand in business and the firm has developed a good name for themselves in the budget Android tablet market.
