Lenovo also had some products to showcase in Berlin during IFA 2011, including the IdeaPad A1 slate, priced at $199. This is an Android model, that joins the likes of the IdeaPad K1 and ThinkPad Tablet, but in more low end form. We’re talking 7 inches here, Android 2.3 and $199, a very affordable price.
Lenovo IdeaPad A1 uses the already famous Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and it seems to include a custom interface made by Lenovo, with a special area in the middle for the main functions, such as music, browser and email. The 7 inch display supports a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels and the specs of the device include an ARM Cortex A8 1GHz processor, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and up to 32GB of internal memory.
A dual camera is also on board, as well as a microSD slot and microUSB port, while the battery inside provides up to 7 hours of functioning time. The weight of the product is 400 grams. Various color version of the slate will be available and in case you want to see the product in action, there’s always the video below, taken on the IFA 2011 floor:
