There seems to be no stopping. The ongoing tablets war is inviting many more players with each passing day. Today India has invariably become a top destination of many leading tablet makers. And the latest entrant here is none other than Lenovo, a well know laptop manufacturer which has already launched its Windows 7 based tablet named as IdeaPad P1 in US. The Chinese company has announced that it would be launching a series of tablets in India by September this year.
The report states that Lenovo would launch tablets ranging from low-end models to high end ones. There was however no mention as to whether the one launched in US will be available here or not. The whole episode will be kicked off with the company launching a 10 inch tablet, IdeaPad K1, which will be based on Google’s Android Honeycomb 3.0 operating system. There is an anticipation that the tablet might be based on the upcoming Android version 3.1 update.
The IdeaPad range of tablets will be manufactured in lines with the US version of the Lenovo tablet called Lepad. Some of its tech specs include 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1 GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core processor and 1GB of RAM. Over and above that, there will be both front and rear cameras. However, the device may be just Wi-Fi only.
Coming to the pricing, there has been no official report so far. However, some of the international advertisements have put its price at $ 500, which is equivalent to Rs. 22,500 in India. That we guess would be just for a 16 GB version because IdeaPad with 32 GB is another version which will cost Rs 32,000. By around the same time, the same range of tablets would also be launched in Australia, reports AndroidOS.in.
