Camera options and picture quality is good also.
It's a stupid problem that is a major issue for anyone that tries to do anything on this tablet.

Just get rid of the awful Lenovo launcher and you're good to go.

I picked up this tab a few days ago after some extensive research. Was in the market for a budget tablet $250 or lower. My choices initially were the Kindle Fire, B&N Nook and the Ideapad A1. When the specs/price was put together the Ideapad A1 came out way ahead of the rest. It's true that the Nook and Kindle Fire are dual core tabs but that really doesn't mean anything since usability there is severely limited to be anything more than a media consumption tool for their respective vendors - Amazon and B&N. The Kindle Fire as a permanent storage handicap of 6GB so that was out. The Nook requires an additional $30 SD card since there is only 1GB user space on the device...so that brings the tab price to $279. For just $199 this Ideapad tab gives you everything that you could want in a budget tablet.

- 16GB of storage space (2GB+14GB internal SD)
- MicroSD expansion slot
- GPS which works offline as well (I have not tested this)
- Bluetooth 2.1 in addition to WiFI b/g/n
- Front and rear facing cameras although the front cam is pretty low resolution (.3MP) it's better than no camera at all!

The tab ships with Gingerbread using a very ugly Launcher, this is quickly remedied by installing Launcher Pro which makes it nice and pretty. The capacitive touch screen has no lags at all that I noticed and works very smoothly.

- Screen quality is excellent, at this price point it's terrific, does have an ambient light sensor in the front
- Audio quality via headphones is great, the speaker is pretty loud but speakers on mobile devices are all pretty bad so...

After what seemed like forever waiting for a 7" tablet that was designed to be a tablet, with a capacitive screen, GPS, bluetooth, a camera (this has two) and all of the standards (not requiring cell service) for an affordable price (and not being a China wanna be), I thought I finally hit gold with the A1. I actually pre-ordered this directly from Lenovo prior to common availability. Well, to sum it up briefly, it's tons better than any China Wanna Be of any size, but only ties with a converted B&N Nook. (*"converted meaning: rooted and using either a Gingerbread or Honeycomb formatted SD.)

The processor lags compared to Nook. If surfing the Market or the web, you're really never quite sure if you hit the back button because of the lag. Kinda annoying when you discover you've lost you're search or closed out of a program because of this.

Although the resolution is the same as the Nook, the quality and light sensing of the Nook is by far superior.

The touch sensing is equal to the Nook. At times it is very sensitive - unless it's edge sensing. Like the Nook, it sometimes gets a bit persnickety.

The cameras aren't to compare to today's phone or digital camera standards, but this isn't a phone or digital camera and wasn't designed as such. They do the job exactly as I would expect them to. (**Skype is claimed to not work, however other video chat clients have been reported to.)

The GPS rocks. Plain and simple. No data/Wi-Fi required as long as you use a locally installed Nav program. Lenovo includes a limited (one state) nav program just for this. If you hotspot your phone for a data connection, you can use Google's Navigation which is also included. (**GPS does not work within buildings but does fine in a car in a wooded area.

Idea­pad A1 Pros:

*Dual cam­eras (3.1 megapix­els for the rear cam­era)
*Built in GPS and Google maps
*The only one with Blue­tooth
*Built in 16GB stor­age, eas­ily expand­able up to an addi­tional 16GB for $20, or 32GB for around $40 via Micro SD Cards. Accord­ing to Ama­zon 8GB is enough to hold 80 apps, plus 10 movies or 800 songs or 6,000 books.
*The light­est of all
*Runs Android 2.3 (Gin­ger­bread), with many more options than the Ama­zon App Store. No need to hack it or root it.
*Mini USB port for fast dig­i­tal video, audio and data trans­fer. It is also the same port as my phone, one less cable to worry about.

Idea­pad A1 Cons:

*Lack of 3G sup­port.
*512 MB of RAM vs. 1 GB on the Kin­dle Fire.
*Sin­gle proces­sor while the oth­ers have a dual core.

Con­clu­sion: For $200 I get pretty much the same, or bet­ter, specs than the Kin­dle Fire and Nook Color, but I have access to the full Android Mar­ket­place AND the Kin­dle Reader app. If I com­bine this with Ama­zon Prime ($79/year or $39/year if you are a stu­dent) I believe I can get the best of all worlds.

I've had this unit for several days. As the title says "Wow".

Out of the box, I've found his unit to be solidly built. Its performance and speed, for me, has been great. Running applications, internet, everything to date has a "snappy feel". I've experienced very little lag time on my streaming video (I've tested Crackle, YouTube, and netflix). The Cameras are a nice plus. The internal GPS works well (I would like to get a little better map routing software than the "free" version supplied.). Finally, it runs almost everything I've tried to install.

My previous experience with a tablet has been with a Velocity Cruz T301 that I received for father's day. I enjoyed using my Cruz, however, early on, I recognized its limitations. I decided after 6 months of using it to upgrade. After researching everything is the small tablet form factor, I choose, based on specifications alone as there were no good user reviews at the time, the A1 tablet. I have not been disappointed with my choice.

I debated the new Nook and Kindle Fire. I was impressed with most of their specifications but was turned off by their proprietary interfaces and lack of features.
The Kindle Fire is less memory (8gb) and no external on board storage expansion, no cameras, etc.
The Nook was expandable, but seemed to be heavily entrenched in their proprietary interface. I wanted the more open android experience. (I did not want to wait for any new 3rd party android builds.

I could have purchased an iPad2. However, I really wanted a smaller form factor. Also, with the rapidly changing tech world, I know that I would be disappointed when the iPad3 comes out and I've sunk $500 into this year's unit.

I bought my unit for $199.
