Lenovo puts out 7-inch Android tablet, names it IdeaPad A1
Remember in July when we found a mysterious, 7-inch Lenovo tablet? Well, now it's September, and it's not so mysterious anymore. It's called the IdeaPad A1, and on top of the brilliance that is a 7-inch Android tablet, it's also only $249.
It's not as advanced as Lenovo's other offerings, but it sure does give you plenty of bang for your buck. In fact, at only $249, it still manages to pack some killer specs, like a 1GHz Cortex-A8 processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, dedicated GPS, and a screen resolution of 1024 x 600. Naturally, it has front- and rear-facing cameras with 16GB of storage to store those pictures on. In terms of connectivity, it's pretty loaded: WiFi and Bluetooth, of course, and also that dedicated GPS, which means you won't need to have an internet connection to navigate yourself around town.
The IdeaPad A1 only half an inch thick, and weighs less than a pound. You can also get its magnesium alloy casing in black, white, pink, or blue. So at $249, I'd say this is one heck of a deal. You can pick one up stateside in September.[Engadget]
