Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Tablet Review

The Lenovo K1 tablet has got a powerful processor and the Honeycomb OS, this is good specially when the world is looking for the android ice cream sandwich OS, just one step behind. The price seems okay when compared with other hi-end tablets with nearly similar specifications but no 3G support is somewhat disappoint, especially in India where you do not find many Wi-Fi hotspots. Another disappointing factor is the missing GPS.
