Beyond an Idea, Lenovo Ships its IdeaPad Tablet


The Lenovo 32GB 10.1” IdeaPad Tablet K1, an Android 3.1 device, is distinguished by its 32 Gigabytes of internal storage, MicroSD Card slot for expanded memory and read/write ability, Micro HDMI output to a Full HD TV set and Ethernet jack for use when Wi-Fi alone won’t work or when you need to conserve battery power.

The black-framed 10.1-inch (1280 x 800) multi-touch display is powered by an nVidia Tegra T120 1.0 GHz processor supplemented by an nVidia GeForce GPU. The embedded lithium-ion polymer battery can operate the IdeaPad for up to 10 hours. An AC adapter is included for recharging.

The 1.65-pound tablet contains two cameras: a front facing 2-megapixel webcam and rear facing 5-megapixel webcam. Between the video chat enabled by the facing cam and Lenovo’s SocialTouch App, the IdeaPad Tablet K1 can put you at the center of your circle of friends.

Lenovo provides 2GB of free integrated cloud storage, making it easy to park your photos, videos and files somewhere safe—from a hurricane, for instance.

More than 30 popular apps are preinstalled. They include Documents To Go, a productivity app you’d normally pay to download. By using the K1 to connect to the Android App Market or Lenovo App Shop (the latter contains apps tested specifically for Lenovo tablets), you’ll have tens of thousands of ways to personalize the tablet into something that conforms to your idea of exactly what an IdeaPad should do.
