Long time laptop manufacturer, Lenovo has been easing its way into the tablet sector lately with its IdeadPad K1 and ThinkPad tablets. The 7” IdeaPad A1 will be the newest member of the family bringing with it an attractive $199 price tag. The A1 specs aren’t all that, but it’s an Android tablet on the cheap nonetheless. While the onboard OS is Gingerbread, Lenovo has augmented it with the same special launcher software as debuted on the K1. The A1 will sport a 1GHz processor, have two cameras, up to 32GB of storage, and a 7” 1024×600 resolution screen.
Lenovo also plans to bundle the Lenovo App Shop in addition to Android Market. The App Shop will supply only apps designed for Lenovo Tablets, and if that’s got you skeptical, they’ve promised 200 apps at launch.
