Lenovo Looking to Reverse Declining Tablet Trend with a Series of Budget Android Tablets

With the exception of Huawei and Apple, tablet sales witnessed a worldwide slump of 13.5 percent in the second quarter, according to an International Data Corporation (IDC) report.

Disregarding the trend, Lenovo has released a range of five new budget tablets running Android Oreo, with prices starting from as low as $69.99.

Lenovo, it would seem, is looking to create a niche for affordable Android-based tablets among casual users, as well as those belonging to the lower end of the spectrum.

These are people who primarily want a tablet for basic stuff like surfing the net, watching movies, and playing games, without wanting to spend heavily on specs-packed models like the iPad, to name one.

Releasing in time for the holidays, the new releases could well get the kind of start Lenovo is hoping for, as they do offer some great options to a lot of holiday shoppers looking for reasonably priced gifts for friends and family.

Lenovo has grouped the new tablets into the three categories, with the entry-level E series comprising Tab E7, Tab E8, and Tab E10 – the seven-, eight-, and 10-inch models, respectively; a 10-inch mid-range version – Tab M10; and a 10-inch premium variant – Tab P10.
