AT&T intros cheap Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 Android tablet
AT&T has added a new device to its line-up of Android tablets: the Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 (first announced back in August 2012).
Presented by the second largest US carrier as a “low-cost, ultra portable tablet”, the Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 features a 7 inch display with 1024 x 600 pixels, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, Bluetooth 3.0, 2MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 1GHz MediaTek 6575 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support (up to 32GB), and a 3,550 mAh battery (capable of providing up to 7 hours of usage time, or up to 20 days of stand-by time). The tablet measures 192 x 122 x 11.5 mm, and weighs 400 grams.
Although AT&T says the A2107 costs $199.99 with a new 2-yr contract agreement, you can buy it for just $99.99 if you’re getting it online (here). This means the new IdeaTab is the cheapest tablet available at AT&T now.
Unfortunately, the IdeaTab A2107 is currently running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. There is no word if it’s going to be updated to Android Jelly Bean. In any case, its specs seem to allow that, so let’s hope for the best.
