Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Tablet Review

Lenovo is here with their IdeaPad K1 and ThinkPad Android tablets. The Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Tablet sells for P 24,995.00 in the Philippines at Villman with 32 gigs of storage, and that’s the one we’re looking at today. It’s available in black, red and silver, and we should see other storage capacities available after launch.

Like all Honeycomb tablets, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Tablet has a 10.1″, 1280 x 800 capacitive display with 10 points of multi-touch, a 1Ghz dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 CPU, 1 gig of RAM, dual cameras, WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth and a GPS. It has a microSD card slot, a micro HDMI port and runs Android 3.1 out of the box. When specs are all the same on the first crop of Honeycomb tablets, how do you differentiate? Lenovo thinks software is the way, so they’ve loaded over 30 apps on this tablet.

In terms of performance, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Tablet handles video playback well, can stream full Adobe Flash content and keeps up with the competition. It scores 1695 in the Quadrant benchmark, which is middle of the pack among Honeycomb tablets and it feels reasonably snappy once you remove some of the bloatware (particularly the Arcsoft media server).

The Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Tablet has good WiFi range, and the GPS was quick to get a fix in our tests. The tablet ships with the usual Google Maps and Navigation, but you’ll need a mobile hotspot to download map data while driving. The standard Google apps are on board including the Android Market, Gmail, email, the Webkit web browser and YouTube Player.
