Excerpt: Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 is a 9-inch tablet with 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 3-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing one, Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS, Bluetooth, 16GB of built-in storage and a memory card slot.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Conclusion: Once again, Lenovo came really close to making a great tablet, but one major flaw keeps the IdeaPad A2109 from a wholehearted recommendation. The display’s narrow viewing angles will affect media lovers and gamers more than people who mainly use their tablets to read or surf the web. But tablets at this size are made for the kind of people who like to do all of those things equally.
Pros: Solid and attractive design, Long battery life, Smooth, fast performance, Well-designed UI
Cons: Display has poor viewing angles, Heavy for its size, MicroSD slot difficult to access
Excerpt: Lenovo is a relative newcomer in the world of tablets, but the IdeaTab A2109 does a decent job at getting their foot in the door and off to a good start. We like the sturdy design of the tablet as well as the speed of the device, but it could use some minor improvements.
Pros: Affordable price, Sturdy construction, Good performance
Cons: Low quality display, Mediocre cameras, Lots of apps pre-installed
Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 Review: The Name Is About As Good As The Tablet
1 October 2012
Excerpt: This is part one of a two-part review of the IdeaTab A2109 and S2110. Part two (the S2110 review) will be published tomorrow. There's no doubt the Android tablet market is heating up much like the phone market was a few years ago. Where before there were relatively few choices, manufacturers are now rolling out new models left and right - sometimes, it seems, with reckless abandon.
Conclusion: Being a relatively new player in the Android tablet space, Lenovo clearly has the formula in conjuring up a respectable tablet – albeit, they still have a lot to learn before being regarded as a contender. When we think of value, there's no denying that plenty of it is found with the Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 , thanks partly to its contemporary hardware and competitive price point of $300.
Pros: $300 price point for a 9-inch tablet, NVIDIA quad-core CPU, Brushed metallic casing
Cons: Low quality display, Muddy quality with photo/video capture
Excerpt: Lenovo's IdeaTab A2109A is a 9in Android tablet running Ice Cream Sandwich 4.1.1. It's a useful size for those for whom a 10in tablet is too big, and a 7in slate too small, and attractively priced at £199. But do the extra couple of inches of screen space make it a better buy than the £40 cheaper Google Nexus 7 ? See Android Advisor.
Excerpt: As well as the 7 and 10-inch Lenovo Ideatab A2107A and S2110A, Lenovo has also launched this, the 9-inch A2109A. It's the best of the three in our opinion, with a 1,280 x 800 resolution (that's the same as Google's 7-inch Nexus 7 ) and four-point capacitive touch display.
