You might remember that there was a piece of info saying that Lenovo priced the IdeaPad A1 tablet at $200 in the lowest storage version with a mere 2GB of memory. Well, it seems that Lenovo thought things through and came to the conclusion that although this is a good Kindle Fire rival, it still needs to make a profit.

Thus, the cheapest Lenovo slate is priced at $229, while the US is getting the 16GB $249 version. So, if you live in any other country you will pay $20 less than in the States and get a tablet that doesn’t quite compare with the Kindle Fire, but it’s still a pretty good way to start your journey into the world of Android tablets.

The IdeaPad A1 comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 1GHz Cortex A8 processor, GPS and 7 inch display supporting a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS are also on board, packed inside a shell that weighs less than a pound.
