Let me first say, I'm doing this review to help those people, like I was, who have been sitting on the fence waiting for a good option apart from the Ipad 2, so I apologize for the lengthy review.
I do have access to an Ipad 2 (when my daughter is not hammering away at it) & I must say that I love it, but being an android phone user, could not get comfortable with the iTunes thingy & the plain old icons interface. However, for a not so technical user, I think the Ipad is the best Tablet choice out there.
However, apart from liking what I had seen of the Android Honeycomb OS, I was also looking for an Android Tablet with connections (hdmi out, sd card slot, etc.) so that ruled out my early favorite, the Galaxy Tab 10.1. After looking & trying the rest I settled on either the Toshiba Thrive, which is fat, but really has a nice feel in your hands, & the Asus Transformer, which has a nice screen & that keyboard dock. Eventually ruled out the Thrive as I couldn't get over the washed out graphics on the screen & the power problems in sleep mode. So it was the Asus..... until I stumbled on an article on the Lenovo Ideapad K1 which grabbed my attention the very night I was going to order the Asus here on Amazon. (Sorry Amazon!)I decided to check it out at Office Depot the next day as it was rumoured they had it on display but not stocked.
Now, I usually buy all my big electronic purchases from Amazon but I couldn't let this one pass since Office Depot only had one in stock.Read more ›
1. Has not froze or crashed once.
2. Have downloaded a couple of movies from Netflix and spent about 20 minutes watching without issues however never watched a complete movie.
3. YouTube works fine with no buffering problems.
4. Load times for surfing the net are slower than my PC's however don't think comparing a PC to a tablet is a fair comparison. Tablet to tablet makes sense which I haven't done and the speed is not that bad.
5. Don't see a need for half the apps included but they can be deleted and each to their own.
6. Screen sharpness is excellent.
Based on the many negative reviews and my lack of any problems might very well have to do with the first lot of tablets which had to be shipped early in July to meet the late July first day of sale.
I would recommend this tablet.
Right out of the box, most apps will work, including the documents reader. If you received one of the earlier shipped models, however, the promised Netflix app is missing, and many market apps will be unstable (I tried Google Sky). You need to perform an update which will provide Netflix and stability fixes (Google Sky works very well now).
The included documents reader is a definite bonus for this tablet. For example, I'm able to read Office (Word, Excel, etc.) attachments on e-mail. I can download PDFs and read them comfortably. The PDF rendering speed is pretty zippy, fast enough that I'm not distracted by it while reading. For small-font, double-column text that's popular in many professional journals, it's easy to find a screen orientation and zoom level for comfortable reading. Panning around a zoomed-in PDF page is intuitive and smooth.
The reception of the built-in wifi receiver is not as good as my laptop or IPhone. Typically, the signal strength on my Ideapad is 1 bar below my other devices. The signal strength icon is not just cosmetic; when the signal strength appears as 1 bar or below, web page loading and app downloads slow down considerably.
I've also noticed that the wifi receiver can perform better or worse depending on the network. So far I've been connecting consistently with Wireless-G (802.11g). My Ideapad has played well with home and hotel networks, but it's been hit-or-miss with airport networks. At one airport, my laptop performed fine with fast webpage loads, but the Ideapad struggled.Read more ›
10/13/11-So I've only had this tablet for 1 day. I'm kind of getting used to Android but it's not really as fast as I've did with Apple's (Ipod touch). So here are my thoughts. Note: I bought this one from Best Buy so the back might be different (See Pro 6).
1. Rebooting the tablet from power off is very fast. You might as well shut it off (which turns battery and wifi off) than to have it on standby and letting battery drain.
2. Android Market. Yes you get THE official one (which is one of the reasons why I bought this).
3. Lenovo App Market. They have their own market. These apps have been tested on the device to work and be compatible.
4. You get a lot of preinstalled apps. It's nice to save a couple bucks. One of them is Documents to Go. Apparently it goes for about $15 regular. The con is that I don't really like that app, but still, I got $15 app for free.
5. Having dual cameras is nice. Of course the quality isn't all that great, but at least they're there. It can also video record.
6. Honeycomb grip back (at least for my model). See Con #3.
7. Rotation lock button on side.
8. Typing is good, no lag.
9. Capacitive Touch Screen (pinch and zoom type). It's a pro because it's more responsive than Resistive Touch Screens.
10. Because it runs 3.1 Honeycomb, it DOES support flash (major plus for me instead of buying the cheaper tablets).
11. 32 GB HARD DRIVE!! That's a no brainer.
1. Charge via pin connector (like your phone). There is no standard AC like you would for a laptop.Read more ›
