Lenovo A1 Tablet The Best $150 You Will Ever Spend!

Lenovo launches the A1 simply the best budget tablet on the market today!

 

Forget all of your old ideas of cheap Chinese made Android tablet, in fact wipe all thought of buying yourself one of those $200 Amazon tablets, because Lenovo have launched what is possibly the best budget Android tablet on the market!

The 7-inch Lenovo A1 tablet isn’t your typical run of the mill bargain basement Android device. Usually a low price translates to little in the way of features, but that is not the case for the A1!

Watch the Lenovo A1 Gingerbread tablet in action in the below video!

Lenovo have actually launched 2 versions of the easy to pocket A1. There is the basic 2GB version which comes in either black or white, for $156 (1000 Yuan) and the larger capacity 16Gb model which comes in pink, blue, black or white for slightly more $203 (1300 Yuan).

Other than the colour options and the available memory (which isn’t really a problem as both have memory card expansion), the specification of both models of Lenovo A1 are pretty fantastic!

First of all the screen is a 7-inch capacitive unit (1024 x 600) with a higher pixel per inch (PPI) value than the iPad, at 170 PPI!

Then there are the 2 built in cameras, the front being a 0.3 mega-pixel unit (same as the iPhone 4) and the rear is a manual focus 3 mega-pixel unit.

Both models also have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, micro SD card expansion (up to 32Gb), micro USB, 3.5mm headphone jack and, very surprisingly, GPS!

The fact that Lenovo have built in a standalone GPS which will work offline is a huge bonus to many (and has possibly swayed myself to purchase one for navigation duties over the Chinese National Day holiday!).

Running the show is Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which has had the usual Le-makeover and does a sterling job functioning on the 7 inch screen.

The 7-inch A1 is simply the best Android tablet on the market for the money, and easily out performs many costlier devices.

Keep your eyes peeled for a full in depth review of the Android  A1 tablet on Gizchina later this month!

    Hello, i bought this pad (16Gb) in China and boy i’m soooo sorry to open my wallet!
    For local Chinese is ok, but if you are foreigner my advice is: stay away!
    Problems so far (~3 days):
    1. Language, customization, localization.
    After you switch to English your A1 is half English and half Chinese. Around 60-70% of icons, programs, instruction, buttons, etc. is still Chinese! If you cannot read Chinese…disaster!
    2. APP Market.
    Lenovo remove everything (100%) which have something to do with Google APP market. There is Chinese (or Lenovo?) APP market with around 600 Chinese APP’s and that is it! There is no options to register device into Google APP market and as result you cannot download any international title. I always get message “no registered device”.
    SHAME ON YOU LENOVO!

    I’m 100% sure that i will return device back to store (if possible????).
    Cheers.

    Hey Mark… How did you buy the device? online or from the store? Didn’t the store guys help out in converting the device into English?

      Yup, I am a bit surprised that you are having such a bad time with it. I was having a bit of a play the other day and found it to be a more than adequate little tablet for the money.
