Lenovo A1

Hosted By Picasa Web Albums
First of all Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope that you haven’t managed to stuff yourself with too much turkey. So the Lenovo A1 tablet! The Lenovo A1 tablet was first announced several months ago and since I first heard about it on All About Android, I have been anticipating this tablet. Overall I have been extremely impressed by the build quality of the A1, especially since it is a budget tablet. At one point two weeks ago the A1 was on sale for as low as $200USD! Once I had told my mother and sister about my recent purchase they hurried online to lenovo.com in order to purchase their very own A1 tablets. I must say that this is a first that my family has rallied behind technology in such a fashion, but it is kind of cool that we all three have the same tablet. I had purchased the white model, whereas my sister and mom purchased the pink and light blue models.

Well enough of that, on with the specs! The Lenovo A1 is a 7inch tablet sporting an Cortex A7 processor similar to the one found in the original iPad. The tablet comes with 16 gigabytes of storage and an expandable microSD slot supporting up to 32 gigabytes. The screen resolution is actually higher than the iPad 2 and has 512 megabytes of RAM. The cameras are okay for video chat, the front facing camera is about 1 megapixels and the rear camera is 3 megapixels. The major downside of this tablet is that it is only running Android 2.3 but I am expecting Cyanogen to release a mod to either Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich eventually. The last negative about this product is that it doesn’t seem to stay connected with my router. After spending way too long with customer support I decided to take my tablet to my public library to test out their wireless. My Lenovo A1 works on every other wireless network I have tried except mine at my house. I have spent countless hours fooling around with trying to figure it out and I have decided to get a new Cisco router tonight at Walmart for their Black Friday special. Hopefully this will work! But I highly recommend this tablet and I will definitely keep everyone posted once I figure out the wireless problem!
