Pros Great looking screen/visuals displaying at native 1200x800
Excellent Operating System specs
32gb memory (expandable to 64gb)
Bluetooth / WiFi / Micro-sd / Micro-HDMI (1080p output)
Wireless print capabilities to home network printer
Cons * Slightly heavier than other tablets on the market (most of the weight though is not in overall frame size but on components inside)
Summary Overall this tablet at a sub-$300 pricetag is a pure winner on many fronts. For those buyers wanting to wade slowly into the "tablet-waters", this is an excellent first choice. You get to find out what features about a tablet you most love while not spending $400-750 for something similar only to find out the same answers. For those Apple-centric folks, this tablet will have goods and bads. Some music from iTunes will need a few tricks played on it to import it successfully into your Ideapad K1. Also, the apps market is not nearly as extensive or secure as Apple's. However, this device has a sharp look to it externally, is strong enough to download web content quickly, versatile enough to send high-def images to an external video monitor (I.e. 1080p television or computer screen monitor), and for sub-$300 I doubt you can find another tablet to match the K1's "fun factor."
Pros Once I updated this tablet it is running Android 3.2.1 This tablet OS is very fast and responsive. Wireless signal strength was very good - no connection issues.
Cons Slightly heavier than competitors, but not an issue for me.
Summary Based on the Skylorem review, I purchased this table 12/11 and immediately updated it - mine required 3 updates. Do not base your decision on the negatives - simple updates remedy any of these problems. It may take 30 minutes or less - just follow the instructions shown in Skylorem review.
PS My neighbor purchased a Kindle Fire - took him hours to just get it connected to his wireless - it also needed updating, but he had to jump through hoops to get it connected initially - that is NOT a problem for the Lenovo IdeaPad K1!
Pros Fast. Excellent mid-line entry into the Droid tablet market. Clean crisp design with nice touch and feel.
Cons USB cable doesn't charge the device.
Summary Ignore the agenda driven "haters"... outstanding product for the price.
Pros The capacity is greater than most competitors for the same price. Androig works well and maneuvering the menus and screens is easy. Battery capacity is great and screen resolution is very good. Recommend the optional leather back. No wifi issues.
Cons Cameras don't take great videos or photos in low light. Sound volume is poor. The device has frozen a bit now and then. Heavier than competitors but that is always relative.
Summary It is a nice tablet for those wanting to stick with the Android platform and needing the 32gb capacity in a competitively priced unit. I only use the Wifi but I have no problem with email or any cloud based files and systems. supports document editing, book readers from various vendors and other mainstream uses. As the market competition brings newer devices, this unit may not complete with regards to sound and video recording quality.
Pros Android Honeycomb 3.1
Fast boot, fast application loading, multiple apps/games running doesn't slow down much.
Netflix = although.... Kindle app rocks!!!
Never had any of the issues that I read about on this site.
Overall a strong entry into the
Cons Price still a bit high if you don't travel. (I travel 18-20 a month.. Lots of airplanes!!!
Summary I had the advantage of testing out a few different tablets, Thrive, Galaxy, Zoom, and Lenovo K1. I found the design and layout on the Lenovo the best. If you are looking to use your tablet for more then games, I would reccomend you check out the Lenovo Thinkpad.
I am going to test out the Sony S and if I like that one better, give this one to my wife.
