Lenovo’s Smart Tab with Alexa Show Mode is better than Amazon’s Fire HD 10 in so many ways
One of the most interesting 3rd-party Alexa devices to come out of CES 2019 is easily the new Lenovo Smart Tab line of Android tablets with an included speaker dock. They are the first 3rd-party tablets to use Amazon’s Show Mode feature with hands-free Alexa built-in, which essentially turns them into an Echo Show when docked. Unlike Amazon’s own Show Mode Dock for their Fire tablets, which is nothing more than a charging stand that triggers Show Mode, Lenovo has put Dolby Atmos speakers and 3 far-field microphones in the dock to make this a true alternative to the Echo Show.
At its core, the Leno Smart Tab is a 10.1-inch tablet running Android 8.1 Oreo. It’s noteworthy that these tablets run Google’s version of Android and come with the Google Play Store, which most people prefer to Amazon’s Fire OS and Amazon Appstore, due to Google’s much larger app selection. There are several Smart Tab versions with slightly different specs, ranging from $199.99 to $349.99, but they all include the speaker dock, have the same 1920 x 1200 resolution screen, 1.8 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 450 CPU, and a micro SD card slot. The tablet feels much more premium and nicer in the hand than any of Amazon’s Fire tablets.
