Lenovo has just unveiled their newest tablet offering – the Lenovo IdeaPad A1.
Some of you may mistake the A1 name as a clear reference to its top notch specs, but don’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. It’s clearly no Samsung Galaxy Tab-killer.
But what it does have to boast of is a price tag that’s way more affordable than most tablets these days, ‘cept of course for the doomed HP TouchPad.
How affordable is it exactly? The 8GB variant is retailing for just $199. That’s roughly around Php8.4K based on current exchange rates, making the Lenovo A1 one of, if not the cheapest ‘droid tablets around. Sure, 8GB may not be enough in this day and age of apps and digital media, but that’s where the microSD card will come in handy. But if you really want one with more onboard memory, there’s also a 16GB ($249) and 32GB ($299) version
Question is, will it be released in the Philippines? We still don’t know, but it is scheduled to begin rolling out this mid-September. Hopefully by then, we’ll know our fate, whether we’ll get blessed with the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 or not.
