In the present high-tech market where android tablets have dual core processors Lenovo recently launched its A2107A Ideatab with a single core processor. Let us take a brief look at it.
Design and built

Its front is all glass with black borders with absolutely no buttons. The chassis is around 11.5 mm thick and its back panel holds the company logo and a stereo speaker grill, while the rear camera is at top. The overall looks of the 7-incher tablet is clean, classy and rich.
The Lenovo Ideatab A2107A is a dual SIM GSM+GSM/WCDMA tablet is only meant for 3G internet and not for voice calls. It runs on 1 GHz Cortex A9 processor and 1 GB of RAM.

The tablet features pre-installed free applications in plenty that are meant for both work and play.
Performance and media
Compared with the other single-core 1 GHz processor-based tablets, the Ideatab A2107A performs almost 30 percent faster, that is obviously because of the the higher capacity RAM featured in it. With its regular 7-inch display reproduces good colours, sharpness and brightness, which make watching videos and photos fun. Its stereo speakers are loud and give quality audio output.
With a price tag of Rs 14000, this single core processor tablet is no match for a lot of cheap dual processor tablets available in the market. But a good brand name and tough build quality may save the Lenovo Ideatab A2107A.
