Lenovo IdeaPad K1
I now understand why girls are attracted to "bad boy" types. They're just more interesting. Sure, they can be erratic, impractical, self-absorbed, or just plain broken--but at least there's a story to tell your friends.
This insight hit me after finishing CNET's review of the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Android 3.1 tablet ($499, 32GB). If there's a bad boy of tablets, this is not it. Nope, you're looking at the perfectly sensible "nice guy" tablet here. It does all the right things, has all the expected specs, comes from a good family, and is utterly and tragically forgettable.
Now, don't get me wrong--the IdeaPad K1 is a great tablet. I rated it right up there with the Motorola Xoom, and it deserves every star. I just hope that tablet manufacturers have a few more bad boys waiting in the wings to keep things lively.
