Sascha took a quick look at Lenovo’s entry-level Android Honeycomb tablet, the IdeaPad K1. From the video, it looks like a solid offering from Lenovo, but nothing too exciting. Based on performance of the accelerometer and scrolling between home screens, Sascha guessed that the IdeaPad K1 is running an older version of Honeycomb. The settings app was locked down, so he couldn’t confirm his hunch. The US Lenovo product page indicates it’s running Android 3.1. It has the typical specs for a Honeycomb tablet:

  • 10.1″ screen
  • 1280×800 px resolution
  • NVIDIA Tegra 2, 1GHz dual-core A9 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB flavors
  • 2MP front cam, 5MP rear cam

Interestingly, the device has a hardware home button, which is rare on Honeycomb tablets, perhaps a nod to the Thinkpad Tablet that has 4 hardware buttons in addition to the typical Honeycomb capacitive buttons. Pricing is around 399 to 429 Euros.

The US Lenovo page has an option to buy, but the only available configuration is 32GB, with a choice of red, black, or white rear faceplate. US pricing is $499.99, currently down $99.01 from the original $599 price.

A black, 32GB IdeaPad K1 model is also available from Amazon for $449.99.
