Lenovo IdeaPad K1

If you've yet to pick up a Lenovo IdeaPad K1, you're definitely in remiss as far as Honeycomb tablets goes. Lenovo's 10.1-inch consumer-friendly (as opposed to the more business-oriented ThinkPad tablet) is actually a bit of a looker. It's more rounded than the likes of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 (we'd dare call it a cousin of the dying HP TouchPad), but it's definitely thicker, too.

For the most part, it's a pretty familiar feel, sporting NVIDIA's Tegra 2 system on a chip, though the Honeycomb user interface has been skinned a bit, plus Lenovo's added its custom launcher and quick-launch system to the home screens. We're actually rather enjoying them -- they're at the very least a little different.

It's got ports up the wazoo as well, which also explains a bit of its girth.

We've got more pics and video after the break.

It doesn't look any bigger than a xoom honestly.

Nice form factor! Personally, I feel like some of the thinner tablets seem so thin I'd be afraid to break them. Any word on pricing?

I like the thickness of my Xoom, don't think I would want much thinner in a tablet. Have spent some time with the sammy and it seems like it would get broken in my backpack. Most of these go in a case of sort anyway so I guess its a moot point.

Can this be used with the Thinkpad's pressure sensitive stylus?

Ok so some retarded German Court thinks the Tab 10.1 looks like an iPad and bans it. This look pretty much the same as the Tab. Im not supporting Apple here, quite the opposite, maybe we should all release Android tabs that look the same and put Apple into a legal spin it will never recover from.

Robbzilla says:

the problem with that is, if they get a strong ruling, it sets precedent, and you've just turned every other manufacturer into an ATM for Apple.

I prefer the tablet that is thicker like this one and my Xoom. The thinner tabs are just a little too thin for my backpack.
