What’s that, is it LePad? Sort of! It’s the USA version of China’s LePad, here called the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 carrying around Android 3.0 Honeycomb and a slew of other elements you might rack up as oddities. Right now it’s appearing in a couple of online stores as “out of stock” or “sold out” and you know what that means – coming on quick. This device is slated to be released in June and will be for sale at Buy.com and Krex first if they’ve got anything to say about it.
First lets have a look at the Krex listing – this one they’ve got the device up for a total of $510 and it’s Out of Stock. Next they’ve got a listing up on Buy.com that has no price but does have a much more involved listing – a nice spread! Several of these magical images can be found in the gallery below.
This device is running Android 3.0 and an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor at 1.0GHz out of the box. This device also includes 1GB DDR2 memory, 32GB Flash storage, has a 10.1″ 1280 x 800 pixel resolution screen, 2.0MP Front Camera and 5.0MP Rear Camera, weighs in at 1.65 lbs, and connects via 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1. It’s got a whole bag full of ports: Multi-function Connector, Micro SD Card Reader, Micro HDMI out, SIM Card Port, 3.5mm stereo headphone output, and built-in digital microphone. AND it’s running a Lenovo-specific user interface that’s running over Honeycomb.
And look at this, a whole giant pack of odd apps right out of the box : Android Market, Lenovo App Shop, Amazon MP3, Slacker Radio, mSpot music, Netflix, mSpot Movies (SD), mSpot HD, Acetrax, Zinio, Kindle, Silver Creek Games (5), Oberon Warships, Rovio Angry Birds, Talking Tom, Galaxy On Fire 2, Need for Speed Shift, Vendetta Online, Murtha Drawing Pad, Kongregate, ooVoo, PokeTalk, eBuddy, Twitter, Symantec, Accuweather, Docs to Go.
