Notebookcheck
20 October 2011
  • 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.
  • Pros: Low price, Speedy specifications, Low weight and smaller price tag.
  • Cons: Gingerbread still an early platform, Poor OS X support, Mixed build quality, Decent app stability and non-flexing displays.

  • Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet K1 is as good as its Android Honeycomb tablet competition, but doesn't offer any game-changing differentiators that make it stand out in the ever-expanding tablet space.
  • Pros: Fast performance. Good multimedia features. Clever button and camera layout. Physical Home button. Netflix is preloaded.
  • Cons: Prone to crashes. Thick. Lots of bloatware.

  • Conclusion: If you’re looking for an affordable 10.1-inch tablet, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 is not the cheapest tablet, but at about $450, it does come in at less than most other 32GB models. The K1 is a bit too heavy and large for its own good, and Lenovo’s Android modifications are a mixed bag, but there is...
  • Pros: Good pre-loaded apps, Good price for 32GB of storage, Lenovo App Shop good for productivity apps, Physical Back button works well
  • Cons: Heavy & big, No microUSB port, Crappy charging port, Android UI modifications are ugly, Plastic backplate is hollow & attracts fingerprints

  • Pros: Loads of apps and games preloaded, reasonably priced, delivers a decent user experience.
  • Cons: Rear cover cheapens the K1’s otherwise premium look and feel, home button isn’t placed well.

  • Summary: If you were looking for a 10-inch Android tablet just a few short months ago, you'd be hard-pressed to find them for sale and Android 2.2 was the only game in town.  However, with the release of Google's Honeycomb OS in late February, the floodgates began to open.
  • Pros: Solid Android 3.1 performance, Fast 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual Core SoC, Great custom UI tweaks offer additional utility, Screen capture button!, Custom File Manager app, Optional keyboard dock, Competitively priced
  • Cons: Fewer ports and IO access features, Screen could be a little brighter
