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.
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 nothing particularly offensive about the design, specs, or operation of the device. It’s just nothing special, which might be the biggest knock against it. Everything is merely OK.
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
Excerpt: Lenovo has finally entered the Android tablet market with the 10.1-inch IdeaPad K1, which mixes innovative UI enhancements and a useful selection of pre-loaded apps with a stylish, colorful design. With a $499 price for the 32GB version, this tablet is $100 less than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Apple iPad 2 with the same amount of storage. But is the IdeaPad K1 innovative enough to steer you away from better-known slates?
Pros: Innovative interface enhancements, Tons of preloaded software, Stylish design, Good price for 32GB of storage
Cons: Weak sound, Heavier than some competitors, Occasionally buggy performance, Annoying ads
Summary: With a price tag of Rs. 33,990, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 is officially the cheapest and most feature rich tablet in the market with the most amount of onboard storage. There's really no reason to buy the Motorola Xoom as the K1 offers everything the Xoom does and more. As far as 3G tablets are concerned, the Galaxy Tab 750 is the only other real competitor. Which one is better, entirely depends on what you are looking for.
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. The manufacturer has also added a Favourite button that looks like a speech bubble. When clicked, it shows thumbnails of your favourite apps.
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.

Pros: schnelles Android-Tablet, hohe Auflösung
Cons: viele Apps vorinstalliert, stürtzte gelegentlich ab
Conclusion: На наш взгляд, IdeaPad K1 благодаря хорошим характеристикам и доступной цене выглядит весьма привлекательно.
