Lenovo Group has chosen the integrated Android mobile platform from MediaTek for its new LePad A2107 dual-SIM 3G/HSPA tablet, which is shipping to customers globally.

Lenovo's LePad A2107 provides high-speed cellular data and wireless connectivity and is designed for tablet users who want to be connected always. The A2107 uses MediaTek's Android mobile platform consisting of the MT6575 and the MT6620 SoCs.

MediaTek's MT6575 incorporates a 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 processer, a PowerVR Series5 SGX GPU (graphics processing unit) from Imagination Technologies, a 3G/HSPA modem and built-in support for 3D displays and DTV-grade multimedia capabilities by leveraging the company's world-leading DTV platform technologies.

The MT6620 4-in-1 connectivity combo integrates an 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0+HS, GPS, and FM transmitter/receiver into a single chip with the world's smallest footprint and leading low-power consumption. The MediaTek mobile platform enables mobile device manufacturers to address the mid and entry-level tablet market that demands global connectivity.

IT research firm Gartner said that consumers are increasingly using tablets as a companion device to the PC and mobile phone to access media and information. It forecasts that the tablet market will increase from 119 million in 2012 to 494 million by 2016.

It noted that a company that has capabilities and technologies across different multiscreen platforms, from smartphones to DTV, should be well positioned to benefit from participating in the growing tablet market.

MediaTek MT6575 and MT6620 are currently being deployed by MediaTek customers in their latest smartphone and tablet offerings.
