Excerpt: Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet is an Android Honeycomb tablet with a 10.1-inch 1280x800 pixels touchscreen, Wi-Fi connectivity, NVidia's 1GHz dual-core processor, 64GB of built-in storage, integrated front (2MP) and back (5MP) mounted webcams.

Summary: Two months before Steve Jobs revealed the original iPad in 2010, Lenovo arrived at CES with a product called the IdeaPad U1. The U1 was a tablet with an innovative keyboard dock — the tablet itself ran a custom Linux interface (called Skylight) and when inserted into the dock it booted Windows 7. It was one of the most captivating products revealed that year, but like many gadgets shown at the mega tradeshow, it morphed into an entirely different go-to-market device.
Pros: Netflix included, Optical home button, Some useful software tweaks
Cons: Application crashes, unstable software, Thicker and larger than competition, Glossy, plastic back feels cheap
Summary: The Lenovo IdeaPad K1 has a 10.1-inch display with 1280 x 800 resolution pixels. Powered by 1.0GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor, the tablet uses Android 3.1 operating system with its own skinning on top of it.
Summary: The K1 does impress considerably with the sheer performance. It doesn't slow down even with multiple apps installed and running in the background, something that bugs most Android devices. However, the build quality is disappointing, and the K1 does heat up quite a bit even after 20 min of web browsing. Not surprisingly, we would recommend the Motorola Xoom or the slightly more expensive but much superior Samsung Galaxy Tab 750.
Pros: Very good OS performance, Lots of preloaded apps
Cons: Average build quality, Heats up considerably after few minutes of use
Summary: First timer: Along with the X Series and ThinkPad Tablet, Lenovo’s IdeaPad K1 is the company’s first major salvo into the tablet marketplace. With a competitive price tag and strong features, the K1 is aimed straight towards casual users.
