LENOVO ANNOUNCED the budget A-Series Android tablet lineup on Tuesday, hot on the heels of Samsung's Galaxy Tab4 unveiling.

Lenovo's A-Series lineup consists of four tablets, the catchily-titled Lenovo A7-30, A7-50, A8-50 and A10-70, which all arrive running Google's Android mobile operating system. Lenovo is yet to clarify which version, but given the tablets' middling specifications, it might not be Android 4.4 Kitkat.

The Lenovo A7-30 is the entry level model of the four, and while we're yet to see its full specifications, Lenovo said that the budget tablet features a 7in screen, a quad-core processor, Dolby-enhanced speakers and a built-in SIM slot. The Lenovo A7-50 doesn't sound too different, although Lenovo has revealed that it features dual 2MP cameras, optional 3G and 8GB of internal storage.

The Lenovo A8-50 pictured above perhaps unsurprisingly features a larger 8in HD display, and will be made available in a range of different colours. As you've probably already guessed, the A10-70 features a 10.1in HD screen, but that's all we know about the tablet so far.

Shao Tao, VP and head of mobile at Lenovo said, "Lenovo's latest A-series tablet family is designed to meet the demands of today's young, active users who are always on the go, and have lifestyle requirements that are as diverse as their own personalities. With these latest additions to our tablet portfolio, we've introduced devices that speaks directly to each consumer's habits, whether it's enjoying music, reading e-books or watching videos on the go.

"Our Android family of tablets will appeal to users around the world as we've built our products to be highly flexible to serve multiple needs and budgets."

The Lenovo A-Series tablets will be available in the second quarter. While a price is yet to be announced for the A7-30, Lenovo has said that the A7-50, A8-50 and A10-70 tablets will fetch £99, £139 and £169.99, respectively. µ
