Lenovo IdeaTab S6000 Budget Tablet Hides MediaTek Quad-Core CPU Under the Hood

April 22, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you would remember, the Lenovo IdeaTab S6000 tablet was found sneaking through the FCC gates some time ago. The device is now making its way to the American market.

The IdeaTab S6000 is one of the first Android tablets from the Chinese manufacturer Lenovo. This budget friendly tablet device sports a 10-inch display and has a 1280 x 800 pixel density with a 178 degree viewing angle.

The IdeaTab S6000 is powered by a 1.2 GHz MediaTek MTK8389 quad-core processor and it makes the IdeaPad S6000 a budget device.


The MediaTek chip is popular in China and other regions. But it has not been widely seen in devices that have come to the US shores as yet.

The IdeaTab S6000 also comes with a battery that lasts for up to 8 hours. The device also sports an optional HSPA+ radio.

Though all specs are out, the pricing details for the IdeaTab S6000 haven’t been announced.

However, the MediaTek processor on the device suggests that Lenovo may not charge a lot of money for this laptop.

Lenovo also has plans to bring new 7-inch tablets in to the market. These devices will come christened IdeaTab A1000 (with a dual-core chip) and IdeaTab A300 (with a MediaTek quad-core chip) respectively.  Watch this space for more.
