Like just about every Android device manufacturer this week, Lenovo is showing off its latest at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and today officially unveiled its new lineup of TAB3 tablets.

Included in the new family of tablets is the TAB3 10 Business, the only device in the lineup aimed specifically at enterprise users, as well as the TAB3 7 and TAB3 8 models aimed at consumers.
All built for Android 6.0, Lenovo made a point of noting that the TAB3 10 for business users fully supports Android For Work, Google’s platform that allows people to user their personal devices for work while keeping personal and work data separate. Lenovo notes that means the device will have Google Play for Work and other enterprise software preloaded, including a “Kiosk Mode that allows users to set up their TAB3 10 Business as an interactive kiosk.”
The TAB3 10 will pack in a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, a 10″ full-HD IPS display with Gorilla Glass 3, an 8MP main camera and 5MP front-facing cam, NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi AC, full GPS, around 12-hour battery, and an optional upgrade to cellular connectivity. And it includes dust and waterproofing with “ P2i technology to achieve IP52 performance for dust- and splash-proofing.”
As for the more family-friendly TAB3 7 and TAB3 8, both will include a 1.0GHz quad-core processor, 5MP rear cameras and 2MP front-facing cams. The main difference between the tablets will be their displays — a 7″ SD IPS vs an 8″ HD IPS display — but the bigger TAB3 8 also includes a front-facing stereo speakers that uses Dolby Atmos® cinematic moving audio and optional 4G LTE connectivity.
The 10-inch business model will arrive in July and start at $199. That launch will follow the TAB3 7 (starting at $129) and the TAB3 8 (from $99) launch in June.
