Lenovo surprised us with the IdeaPad U300s, its Ultrabook that guns firmly at consumers. But we were also pleasantly surprised by the IdeaPad K1, its take

Lenovo IdeaPad K1 review

 

Can this Android tablet impress like some of Lenovo's laptop offerings?

Good spec list ; Nice range of apps ; Android 3.1's features ; Reasonable price (in theory)

Inconsistent performance ; Freezes and lock outs ; Big and heavy ; Dim screen

Lenovo is going on an all-out assault on the world of tablets, creating a new division specifically for them and announcing a new range.

Lenovo IdeaPad K1 review

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad K1 strives to be more than just another Android tablet. From its Honeycomb tweaks to its plethora of preloaded apps – many of which are actually useful – to its inclusion of Microsoft ReadyPlay DRM, Lenovo puts forth a tablet that...

In a sea of Android tablets, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 stands out. It makes a strong case for itself with its usability enhancements and its snappy design. The inaccessibility of the microSD card slot, the poor speakers, and the unit's relative heft are...

Lenovo IdeaPad K1 review

 

A good price for a reasonable Android tablet; some niggles, but nothing massively serious

Despite the niggles, though, this is a decent tablet at a decent price. There’s a generous helping of preinstalled apps and games, a good 32GB of storage and general performance is fine. Other tablets offer superior hardware, and a better quality...

Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet K1

 

Lenovo has arrived late to the party, but the company better known for its business notebooks and PC's has finally released an Android tablet.

Android Honeycomb 3.1 ; HDMI-out ; Preloaded with up to 40 apps

13.3m thick ; Nothing new or innovative

Lenovo is late to the tablet party, but better late than never, right? Its IdeaPad Tablet K1 is aimed directly at consumers, but on face value it seems like yet another Android tablet that screams "me too".

Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Review

 

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.

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...

Lenovo IdeaPad K1 review

 

The K1's easy-to-use skin and useful apps make it an acceptable option for low-tech types, but geeks will likely demand faster performance and longer battery life.

Lenovo IdeaPad K1 review: Lenovo IdeaPad K1

 

Lenovo IdeaPad K1

Lenovo's ; packs in all of the best features found in today's modern Honeycomb tablets (upgradeable to Android 4.0) and offers some unique Android optimizations and preloaded apps.

The design is thick and heavy compared with the latest from Apple and Samsung, not all of the Android tweaks pay off, and the screen isn't as bright as it could be.

Lenovo plays it safe with the IdeaPad K1, delivering a solid tablet that does little to stand out from the Honeycomb herd.

Review: Lenovo IdeaPad K1

 

With everyone trying to muscle into the tablet market, Lenovo's entry is a credible contender.

Available in black, white or red. Largely thoughtful list of preinstalled apps will be of value to novice users. Solid performance. Textured back provides a nice grip; easy to hang on to. Relatively inexpensive at just 0 for 32 GB

Navigation can be difficult. Just shy of six hours of battery life under full load. Volume buttons are tough to reach

Lenovo IdeaPad K1 review

 

Two months before Steve Jobs revealed the original iPad in 2010, Lenovo arrived at CES with a product called the IdeaPad U1. The U1 was a tablet with an innovative keyboard dock — the tablet itself...

Netflix included ; Optical home button ; Some useful software tweaks

Application crashes, unstable software ; Thicker and larger than competition ; Glossy, plastic back feels cheap

The IdeaPad K1 has been in development in one form or another for a year and a half, yet it still isn’t ready
