It’s been a while since we have heard anything regarding the Lenovo IdeaPad K1, another device that has entered the surge of new tablets which are now on offer on just about every high street, and online store. For those of you who are interested in a new tablet, Lenovo have kindly released a data sheet that helps us explore the tablet a little more intimately.
Lenovo are pointing their tablet finger at specific audiences with this one, and hope to keep you connected to your music, movies and applications, even when you are on the go. Obviously they make a point of being able to run Flash content aswell, unlike some other tablets on the market. This is a selling point that most manufacturers have pinpointed down to, because they know it could make the difference between selling their own branded tablet, and the other.
So what other unique selling points does the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 have that can help you sway your decision? As mentioned above, Lenovo are targeting the audience with media-filled presents such as a dedicated online storage space, so you can share your media across every single device you want to access it.
SocialTouch is another innovation from Lenovo, developers have gone to the trouble of integrating all of your favourite social networking websites in to one easy-to-use interface. This unfortunately does not include our new favorite, Google+ though.
Lenovo has gone the distance to add many other features to make it as impressive as they want it to be. They have added a personal element to the design, in which you can choose from four attractive colors (red, black, white and brown) to go with the slim aluminium decals.
And as any tablet should be, they have made it as light as a feather so you can take it anywhere without a fuss. The IdeaPad K1 goes the distance and at just 13.3mm thin and weighing in at just 750g, it slips right in to one of the top tablets on the market today.
Lenovo also mention two recommended accessories,the Sleeve LS200, which will try and keep your tablet free of scratches, dust and bumps whilst the keyboard dock KD101 is a dedicated external keyboard with dock, charger, and convenient placement of hotkey operation.
Specifications for the IdeaPad K1 stand up toe-to-toe with many other tablets in market, and feature an NVIDIA Tegra 2.0 T20 1.0Ghz dual-core processor, a 10.1″ 1208×800 HD display, up to 1GB DDR2 memory and up to 64GB of SSD storage, front and back mounted webcams (2M) and (5M), Micro SD card reader, Mini HDMI connector and docking port and not forgetting support for Bluetooth, 3G and WiFi connectivity. Battery life will last around and up to 10 hours with a 2 cell battery, but may vary depending on what settings you choose to operate at.
There is a bunch of bundled software that comes with the tablet, many of it is too much to explain here, so we will do you a favour and point you to the official datasheet at the end of this article so you can have a look-see for yourself. Software which we will mention is the Lenovo IdeaPad K1’s Android OS, Android 3.1 Honeycomb, which you can use to access many thousands of applications and games to use and play with via the Android Market.
