Lenovo has just unveiled their newest tablet offering â€“ the Lenovo IdeaPad A1.
Some of you may mistake the A1 name as a clear reference to its top notch specs, but donâ€™t be fooled, this is far from being the numero uno tablet in the Android scene right now. This 7-inch tablet only comes packed with a single core 1GHz processor bundled with a 3-megapixel and VGA front-facing camera combo with Android Gingerbread as its OS and WiFi connectivity only. Itâ€™s clearly no Samsung Galaxy Tab-killer.
But what it does have to boast of is a price tag thatâ€™s way more affordable than most tablets these days, â€˜cept of course for the doomed HP TouchPad.
How affordable is it exactly? The 8GB variant is retailing for just $199. Thatâ€™s roughly around Php8.4K based on current exchange rates, making the Lenovo A1 one of, if not the cheapest â€˜droid tablets around. Sure, 8GB may not be enough in this day and age of apps and digital media, but thatâ€™s where the microSD card will come in handy. But if you really want one with more onboard memory, thereâ€™s also a 16GB ($249) and 32GB ($299) version
Question is, will it be released in the Philippines? We still donâ€™t know, but it is scheduled to begin rolling out this mid-September. Hopefully by then, weâ€™ll know our fate, whether weâ€™ll get blessed with the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 or not.
