MWC (Mobile World Congress) is not just about phones as Lenovo has just announced two new Android tablets targeted at entry-level and mainstream users - the new Tab 2 A8 and Tab 2 A10-70.

The Tab 2 A8 features an 8-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Powering it is a quad-core MediaTek processor that runs at 1.3GHz with 1GB of RAM. It will also be available either with 8GB or 16GB of storage. A microSD card slot provides expandable storage of up to 32GB.
