Both slates are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, with prices starting at $188 USD and deliveries expected to begin later this month for the 7-inch Lavie Tab and in January for the 8-inch Lavie Tab S.

NEC has been around as a tablet maker for a while, but its market share is not impressive yet. However, this company is not dropping this market and has just unveiled two new Android slates. Dubbed Lavie Tab and Lavie Tab S, they come with modest specs and are also priced accordingly.

The first of the two is the 7-inch Lavie Tab, a tablet powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, next to 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. The display only offers 1,280X720 pixels. This slate also features Dolby Atmos audio and is powered by a 3,500 mAh battery. Sales will begin in two days, and the price is $188 USD.

The Lavie Tab S has better specs overall, starting with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and the 8-inch IPS display with full HD resolution. The tablet also features 3 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, 5 MP/8 MP cameras, as well as a dustproof and waterproof design (IP5X and IPX2 rated). The 4,250 mAh battery promises 8 hours of mixed use. The price is $274 USD, but availability will take a while - deliveries are scheduled to begin in January.

Both NEC tablets above only run Android 6.0 Marshmallow, unfortunately. It is not known yet if they will hit the US market as well or not, but we will get back to them as soon as we hear anything about it.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
