Lenovo’s IdeaPad K1 Android tablet has started shipping today
It seems like it was just yesterday when we heard conclusive information about Lenovo’s tablet plans centered around Android. And in fact it wasn’t that long ago. That was in mid-June. Lenovo sure moves fast, since apparently its first Android-powered tablet has just started shipping in the US.
That’s right, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 tablet, which we saw again toward the end of June, is now on its way to those who ordered it from Office Depot. So it’s probably likely that over the next few days it will start to become available everywhere there are electronics (and especially computers) sold.
Competition is always good, yet it’s unclear what exactly may differentiate Lenovo’s first tablet in the crowded Android tablet market. Perhaps the brand is going to be enough for some. Speaking of which, Lenovo is also expected to release a ThinkPad-branded offering later on.
The K1 being branded IdeaPad is aimed primarily at individual consumers, while the ThinkPad tablet will undoubtedly appeal to corporate environments.
