10 January 2012
  • 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...

Review: Lenovo IdeaPad K1

Wired
23 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I paraphrase Andy Warhol when I say: Eventually, everyone will build their own tablet computer. Like the scourge of reality television, manufacturers far and wide are trying to muscle into the tablet world, each producing a machine about the same as the last.
  • Pros: Available in black, white or red. Largely thoughtful list of preinstalled apps will be of value to novice users. Solid performance. Textured back provides a nice grip; easy to hang on to. Relatively inexpensive at just 0 for 32 GB.
  • Cons: Navigation can be difficult. Just shy of six hours of battery life under full load. Volume buttons are tough to reach.

  • 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
