Lenovo unveils the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 7-inch Android tablet

Aside from Samsung and Toshiba showing off their own Android tablet at IFA 2011, Lenovo has their own Android tablet they are showcasing at the same event in Berlin. Lenovo's tablet is not like Samsung's or Toshiba's which says "I'm the world's thinnest" or "I have Super AMOLED Plus on" but the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 7-inch Android Gingerbread powered tablet is one of the cheapest in the market when this device becomes available. So how cheap is it really? The 8GB version will only cost you $199. How's that for something that's easy on the wallet?

The tablet packs a 7" (1024x600) touchscreen display, it is being powered by a 1GHz single-core processor (Cortex A8), a 3MP rear facing camera, a VGA front, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, microSD card slot, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
"The 8 GB version of the IdeaPad A1 is set to cost $199, although using US Dollars there is a bit odd, considering that this particular version of the tablet will never make it to the US. Strange, we know. The USA will only get 16 or 32 GB options, with the former costing $249 and the latter $299. Still, if that $199 doesn’t ‘translate’ into something like £300 or €350 (as things usually happen when a product reaches Europe), color us interested." - UV
