  • Summary: The IdeaPad Tablet K1 is an inexpensive alternative to the iPad that's also extremely capable, thanks to its powerful processor.

PC Magazine
19 January 2012
  • 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.

Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Tablet Review

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.

Digitaltrends
28 September 2011
  • 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

14 September 2011
  • Summary: Verdict: Since the K1 offers loads of software, is a Honeycomb device and sports potent hardware, it’s a great value buy that delivers a smooth experience.
  • 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.

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.

17 August 2011
  • 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

  • Excerpt: Lenovo's customisation of Android 3.1 is beautiful, and I liked the default wheat field wallpaper. The launcher widget features five Zones (icons), which provides quick access to select apps. Of course, you can personalise this widget and add your favourite apps here.
  • Pros: Sleek UI; Sturdy build quality; Great performance; Excellent viewing angles; Good battery life; Expandable memory; HDMI port.
  • Cons: Below average camera; No USB port; Lacks equaliser setting.
