Lenovo makes some pretty high-quality and durable computing products, so when their Android-based Lenovo Lephone and Lenovo LePad failed to reach American soil, I was more than slightly disappointed. With promises to make a push into the US Market, we’ve been teased by the Lenovo Ideapad K1, a tablet which we’ve seen appear at Buy.com and OfficeMax for $500.

Now Amazon is getting in on the fun, not only listing it for $500 but also allowing you to place a pre-order.

I’m curious to see how hyped people get about the IdeaPad K1 and equally as interested in how it performs. Lenovo has a loyal following for their Thinkpad and Ideapad brands, and launching an Android-based device that carries the Ideapad name is – as Ron Burgundy said – kind of a big deal. In fact, I’ll be anxiously awaiting the rumored limited edition BurgundyPad that says, “Stay Classy, fellow Phandroid” every time you shut it down.

UPDATE: It looks like Amazon has pulled the K1 from it’s site as the link no longer works.
