Tablet PC Reviews
15 March 2012
Summary: If the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 were the only budget tablet on the planet, it would be easy to recommend it simply for its affordable $200 price tag. But it isn't, and the fact that you can get the Kindle Fire for the exact same amount of cash will likely result in many buyers opting for name recognition over bonus inclusions like a camera and an SD card slot.
Pros: Offline GPS, Lightweight and easy to hold, Front- and rear-facing cameras, Micro SD card slot for expansion up to 32GB
Cons: Gingerbread OS, Screen marred by poor viewing angles and glare, Pokey processor
Excerpt: If you’re on the lookout for a full-featured Android tablet with decent specs and a low price tag, say hello to the Lenovo IdeaPad A1. Priced just a little bit more than Android-powered devices like the Amazon Kindle Fire and the Nook Color e-reader tablet, the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 offers a lot more features from the get go. And it also comes in a highly portable form factor, to boot.
