after it was officially introduced, Lenovo’s IdeaPad A1 tablet is finally starting to appear in major EU markets.
The IdeaPad A1 is a down to earth 7-inch tablet with a single core Cortex A8 chip, 16GB of storage and SD card slot for expansion. It measures 195x124x11.7mm and weighs 400 grams and ships with Android 2.3. However, despite the unimpressive spec, it costs just €199, making it one of the cheapest brand name tablets in Europe.
With many European countries seemingly trying to beat each other to bankruptcy (we are a competitive bunch, for better or worse), cheap gear is probably the way to go.
There is no word whether Lenovo will offer an Ice Cream Sandwich update in the future, but there is a good chance it will, since it’s practically a brand new design.
