Lenovo announces $199 IdeaPad A1 tablet, rocks tablet pricing to the core


Looks like Lenovo’s doing some major arm flexing at IFA. The company has just announced their IdeaPad A1 tablet at a price point many won’t be able to resist – $199 (about Php 8500), undercutting many of its competitors by at least half. The diminutive tablet is understandably not the fastest or the biggest of the bunch as it only packs a 7-inch 1024×600 IPS touchscreen display, 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 3MP rear camera but it’s undeniably hard to resist at that price point. It will initially launch with Gingerbread on board, but with Ice Cream Sandwich coming soon (which promises to merge both smartphone and tablet UI into one coherent experience) that complaint is a minor one.
