Where to buy Android Tablets at the best prices? Get the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 for the lowest price we could find for $199.99.

The Lenovo online store has the IdeaPad A1 Android Tablet for $150 dollars off.  It is only running Android OS 2.3 (GingerBread) has a single core TI processor with limited RAM and 2GB onboard storage expandable via MicroSD Card.  This is best deal has $150 in savings off of the initial price.   But that price was too high and this probably is not your best purchase.

Still we are listing it here for those of you who have some reason to want it.

NewTabletReview suggestion: Wait on better hardware, for the same price.  In a similar price range you can find the much more capable Vizio Vtab Android Tablet which runs HoneyComb. For about ten dollars more you might be able to find a used one of these which is ten dollars well spent.


The rather generic specs are listed here:


  • Texas Instruments OMAP 3622 ( 1GHz ) (Single Core)
  • Android 2.3
  • 512 MB LPDDR2 600MHz
  • 7.0″ SD LED Glare Multi-touch with integrated camera
  • MultiTouch Glare resistant Display 1024×600
  • Two Cameras Front 0.3 MP, Rear 3.0 MP
  • 2GB Internal Memory
  • GPS
  • Micro SD slot
  • Bluetooth 2.1

Is this the right table for you?  There really isn’t too much to be excited about with this cheap and uninspired tablet. If you wait and look around, you will find better hardware for the same price.   Still if this is the tablet you were looking for you can buy it at the Lenovo store.
