Review Lenovo Ideapad A1 Tablet

 

Solid entry-level tablet? The new Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet A1 was an

Good manufacturing quality; Price/performance ratio; Handy size; No crashes during the tests; Good battery life

No HDMI out; Short illumination of menu buttons; Reflective screen; Only 12 month manufacturer warranty; Needs a second to wake up from standby

In our opinion, the Sony Tablet P/S because of the ease of handling on the Android side. The Dell Streak 7" is also handy, but doesn't have a viewing angle strong screen. The HTC Flyer 7" WiFi +3G excels with Access Point function and Magic Stick for...

Lenovo IdeaPad A1 (blue)

 

The tablet market is quickly dividing into two camps: those competing against the iPad on the high end, and budget-minded products that compete with the Amazon Kindle Fire.

The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 includes front and rear cameras, Bluetooth, memory expansion, and a full-fledged Android experience, at a great price

The screen has a bad viewing angle, the design is chunky, and the Android OS isn't the latest and greatest

The Lenovo A1 is a classic Android tablet, at an attractive price, but its subpar screen gives the competition an edge.

Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet A1

 

When you take a look at the specs for the A1, the choice to go with Gingerbread makes a little more sense. The A1 is powered by a single-core 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, with 512MB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. This is enough for smooth...

Phone apps look fine and work well. Decent battery life

Subpar screen. Middling performance. Rapidly aging OS

With both the Kindle Fire and the Nook Tablet available for $50 less, the Lenovo Ideapad Tablet A1, with its middling performance and low-quality screen, is a tough sell.

Lenovo IdeaPad A1

 

With the IdeaPad Tablet A1, Lenovo has attempted to make a fun and easy-to-use 7-inch tablet for the masses. Unfortunately for Lenovo, Amazon has already cornered that market with the Kindle Fire. The IdeaPad A1 is not only $50 more, but it offers up a...

Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet A1: The Sub $200 Tablet

 

There are a number of sub-par, barely functional tablets out there selling for less than $200, but Lenovo seems to be breaking the mold with its new IdeaPad Tablet A1. The 7-inch tablet, running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, is powered by a single core 1Ghz...

Lenovo IdeaPad A1 and Lenovo IdeaPad U300S video

 

Lenovo's Ultrabook and tablet both made their debut at IFA 2011. T3 went hands-on to see if they were special enough to stand out from the crowd

Consumer review by:

"Nice little tablets for the money."

 

Living in Peru (South America), this is a great option for the money. All technology is more expensive here (sometimes double the price in the USA), so having this option for $227 is a good deal.

Price and all the

Screen is a bit hard to see from angles.

"Nice Pad, but is missing a few features."

 

Worth buying if you don't also want HDMI output features. Personally, I want both GPS positioning and HDMI output.

A very nice tablet, nice feel, sleek look and feel.

I's like an HDMI port for easy compatibility with most flat screen TV's, especially when traveling.

"I have it. I love it but feels like just a big phone"

 

This is a very good tablet just the operating system holds it back. I had it since January and it has been a solid purchase. The cameras aren't great but useful when you need them. the biggest complaint is that it feels like a bigger phone more than a...

-the design is attractive

-no hdmi ports

"Absolutely fantastic; great value!"

 

I've owned my Lenovo Ideapad A1 for about a month and it is absolutely fantastic! The tablet is much thinner than I had pictured, but is very solidly built and the "perfect" size for portability. The-on screen keyboards are very responsive (especially...

1). Very solidly built and the "perfect" size for portability

1). Lack of 3G support
