Lenovo is taking pre-order for their IdeaPad A1 Android Tablet right now. It was first announced in September as one of the mid-stream Android tablet that features medium specification but it has better IPS display to cover up its disadvantages. The tablet itself is pretty plain, has a nice sky blue rearplate color, and the tablet is available in two options: 8GB or 16GB.
Despite of its size, the specification is the same, featuring 1GHz single core Cortex A8 chip, 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, front-facing camera, 7-inch IPS display (supporting 1024 x 600) and a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 8GB model and 16GB model is retail for $199 and $249. It’s interesting to see how the 8GB model to compete with Amazon Kindle Fire at the same price range.
