Android-Based Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Hits Amazon For $500 [PRE-ORDER]


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 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.

  1. That flower in the middle had better be a removable widget. I’m only saying this because (as anyone who follows Lenovo tablets knows) it look a lot like a miniature of the home screen they were going to use on the U1 (back when they were going to use their own proprietary OS for tablets.)

    I really hope they don’t screw this thing up by locking that media hub thing to the center of the home screen.

    On a side note, wouldn’t it be great if one of these heavy hitters would offer up an Android tablet that had the option to order it rooted from the factory but without a warranty. I know I’d buy it, my tech toys always out-live their warranties anyway. Just a thought.

  2. Looks like this was removed from amazon, like it was for and officemax before… should be up some time soon again
