Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Hands-on
Picking up the tablet for the first time, we’re instantly pinned down by its weighty feel, which tips the scale at 27.2 oz (771 grams). Combining a touch plastic shell with a metallic bezel, it does offer some peace of mind as a solidly constructed tablet – however, it doesn’t try to attempt to keep things streamlined like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Still, we love that it flaunts a nice textured design with its rear cover, which allows for an adequate amount of grip when held. Overall, its design might not be a trendsetter like some of its rivals, but nevertheless it’s nice to see Lenovo putting a lot of effort into it.
Some of its features include a 10.1” display with a resolution of 1280 x 800, 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front facing camera, full sized USB port, and Android 3.1 Honeycomb. For the short time playing with the tablet, it’s clearly evident that Lenovo sprinkled a little bit of personalization as the system bar has a slight different look to it – not to mention the various new widgets on display as well.
