Lenovo has launched its two first attempts at Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablets, the IdeaPad K1 and ThinkPad Tablet, and we met up with the company to grab some hands-on time with both models. Targeted at consumers and at enterprise, respectively, the K1 and ThinkPad slates each tick most of the Tegra 2 Honeycomb boxes we've already seen from rival tablets; however, Lenovo also has a few tricks to differentiate them. Read on for our first-impressions.
Lenovo has officially announced a trio of slates, including the IdeaPad Tablet K1 and ThinkPad Tablet we saw leaked in press shots earlier, as well as the IdeaPad P1. The K1 and ThinkPad Tablets each run Android 3.1 Honeycomb on NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 processor, and are the first slates to be Netflix-certified; meanwhile, the IdeaPad P1 runs Windows 7 on a 1.5GHz Intel Atom processor.
The official press shots for Lenovo's two upcoming Android tablets have just been leaked. The Lenovo IdeaPad K1 is a consumer tablet that we've seen more details of in previous leaks, slated for a July release. The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet, on the other hand, has remained more mysterious is believed to be designed for enterprise. Both are Android Honeycomb tablets and set to launch any day now.
The Sony S1 and S2 Android tablets with their adventurous form factors are getting ready to hit the market although no specific dates and prices have been announced yet. Plenty of teaser videos of the tablets have surfaced in recent weeks, but today the devices were finally made available for some intimate hands-on time shortly following an announcement that AT&T would be the exclusive carrier for the S2. Here's a roundup of opinions on the S1 and S2 from around the blogosphere.
There's another dual-core device coming, and it's coming from Motorola. One of only a couple of WiMAX 4G compatible dual-cores and certainly the only one with a kick-stand, this device is the newest generation of dual-core Motorola Androids that started with the ATRIX 4G, currently still residing on AT&T exclusively. But I'm sure you knew that, right, they look just the same, right? I say thee nay! Here comes the diamonds, instead!
Welcome back, all those of you who didn't win the first tablet (and yes, we're still waiting on that reply, winner, so be fast or we'll have to give it away to someone else!) We've got our second tablet up for grabs here on the biggest baddest tablet giveaway of them all: Tabletpalooza 2011! This second tablet sticks with the theme of them all being provided by NIVIDIA and toting a most excellent NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor for gaming and speedy rocking and rolling action. This week's tablet, the LG G-Slate, also has the ability to take 3D photos and video - ohhh!
Sony's S1 Android Honeycomb tablet will apparently go up for pre-order on September 1, in the UK at least, lending further weight to rumors of a late-September launch window. That's according to internal documents shared with This is my next, with Sony Centre stores in the UK apparently readying for a significant push "with staffers instructed to know the device inside and out."
We've had more than one look at these magical mystical tablets, one of them a bit fat 9.4-inch Android tablet, the other being a dual 5.5-inch fold-out tablet, also Android based. Both of these devices will be rolling out with Android 3.x (more than likely Android 3.1) Honeycomb and will be connecting over either 3G, 4G, or both, again more than likely. The first tablet is what may be considered at the moment to be a more traditional look at a tablet being 4:3, one piece and ready to roll out with Honeycomb, while the other is a folder-type tablet whose screen spreads out across two displays in a form factor not yet often seen in top-tier Android devices.
