The Amazon Fire series Fire tablets are dirt cheap multimedia devices, but they run severely restricted software that’s only in the name of Android. Today Lenovo launched a better alternative – the Second generation Tab M10 HD – which runs a more popular version of Android 10 with no ecosystem locked gates, looks better, has more powerful hardware, and is still dirt cheap.
The new Lenovo Tab M10 HD has a 10.1 ” HD display (1280 x 800) This provides up to 400 nits of peak brightness while the audio output is managed by two speakers with Dolby Atmos support. It is powered by the MediaTek Helio P22T Processor with 2 GB or 4 GB RAM and up to 64 GB onboard memory, which can be expanded to up to 256 GB via a microSD card.
Lenovo’s budget tablet comes with a 5,000 mAh battery and supports 4G connectivity as well. On the back there is an 8-megapixel camera and a 5-megapixel snapper for selfies and video calls. The Lenovo Tab M10 HD starts at $ 130 and is available in two other versions that also bring Alexa or Google Assistant to the table, but with a small premium. The device will go on sale next month.
