Chinese vendor Lenovo appears set to expand its presence on the Android segment of the market further, and the IdeaTab A1000 and A3000 7-inch tablet PCs that it has made official at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona should help.

The Lenovo A1000 should land on shelves as the cheaper of the two, with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor packed inside, 16GB of internal memory, and a microSD memory card slot to expand it further.

At the same time, the device sports front-facing speakers with Dolby Digital Plus sound, which should prove a great option for those who want to listen to music or view content while on the go.

The tablet PC was announced with Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system loaded on top and should arrive on shelves in black and white flavors.

The 7-inch A3000, on the other hand, sports a 1.2GHz quad-core MTK processor, while capable of delivering a 1024 x 600 pixels resolution.

The tablet PC was announced with support for 64GB of total memory with microSD additions (which suggests that it might sport 32GB right from the start), Wi-Fi connectivity, optional 3G HSPA+ support, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean loaded on top.

Furthermore, Lenovo notes that the new slate will be able to provide users with the great experience they would like to receive from such a device when it comes to watching videos, photo-sharing or web-browsing.

“Lenovo’s latest Android tablet family is designed to meet the demands of a wide range of customers, particularly young, active users who are always on the go, and have adopted the seven-inch form factor as their own,” Chen Wenhui, vice president Lenovo and GM Mobile BU, said.

Both tablet PCs are expected to land on shelves in the second quarter of the year, but no specific info on the price tags they will feature has been provided as of now.
