While some other tablet manufacturers are hitting high peaks when it comes to pricing, the folks over at Lenovo feel that is seemingly the wrong way to go. Instead of releasing a really expensive Honeycomb tablet, they've stuck to announcing a $199 Gingerbread powered device that may never get upgraded to Honeycomb. The IdeaPad A1 tablet is 7 inches running Android 2.3 Gingerbread on a single-core Cortex A8 processor, and a touting a 1,024 x 600 display.
When it comes to storage, you're looking at 8GB, 16GB and 32GB - which versions will be available in the US isn't known at this time but pricing goes like this 8GB - $199, 16GB- $249 with the 32GB - $299. WiFi is on-board as well as GPS but not mention of 3G connectivity at this time, though it may come in later versions but you do get front and rear facing cameras with the better 3MP shooter being placed on the back. Plus, a SDCard and mircoSD card for watever you do so wish. Anyone still interested in a Gingerbread tablet? You can hit the Lenovo site for more details should you need them.
