Lenovo ideapad A1: the next tablet sucess after the Touchpad rush

Lenovo ideapad A1 is the most promising tablet to be released in the next days or weeks. 7" display with a resolution of 1024x600 pixels, 1 GHz single core Tegra 2 as a processor, 2 cams (2 and 5 Megapixels), offline-working GPS, good looking (4 colors available) and solid construction are the positive points. The dark side of the medal is the version of Android installed on the device, which will be Gingerbread (Android 2.3). Seems that newer versions of Android require more power than what the single core Tegra 2 is able to provide. So, sorry, but there won't be any Honeycomb or Ice-cream Sandwich for the Ideapad A1.

However it's still a killer device if we consider the price announced: 199 $. Why would you buy a Nook Color or an Amazon tablet if you can have a better device for a smaller price? That's probably why Lenovo recently announced its intention to sell between 1.5 an 2 million tablets in 2011 (among which 1 to 1.5 million ideapad K1 and A1)...
