Tab For $199? Lenovo’s A1 Idea

Click to enlarge
Great Idea: Lenovo IdeaPad A1

But IdeaPad A1 won’t be on Honeycomb 3.0 – the OS Google specially built for tabs. No sir. 

Instead, the Chinese branded slate will operate Android Gingerbread 2.3 – usually the domain of smartphones. 
This 7-inch 1,024 x 600 res display, unveiled at IFA Berlin, still has pretty decent specs despite the cut price with a single-core Cortex A8 processor,3MP camera, Wi-Fi, GPS. 
For a 16GB you will have to fork out $249 and stretch for a 32GB to $299 but on Aussie conversion this means pretty good bang for your buck.
At IFA, Sony also unveiled its answer to the iPad with two Android Tablet’s P and S but are far pricier with much better specs. 
P is a 5.5″ folding tablet, said to cost US$500 for a 16 GB model.
