Voted cold because it's not an Asus Transformer!

Voted hot because its not a tinned sprout.

Voted cold because you're going to get stung, remember bees don't like you.


cold because it's only android 3.1

I voted cold as your saying you get a 64GB tablet for under £400 but chose to lead with the 16GB. Until Android is more secure against Viruses and it doesn't require me to sign up to Sycrippletec or Mcslowfee to keep it safe.

Voted cold, because I'm surprised people have made an Adroid Tablet hot and not freezing.

Voting hot, good price for tablet, has mixed reviews so check them out and make your own mind up!

is this better than the ASUS?

is this better than the ASUS?



no

unless better means worse.

Transformer is currently £280 on Amazon for the 16GB model which is a good price. But I do like like Lenovo kit, and they are a bit more realistic with the price uplift to 32GB than everybody else. Looking at you here Apple. :-)

Not a great review

"ndroid having a few rough edges on tablets. That's OK. We recognised them in our reviews of tablets such as the Motorola Xoom and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, but found them to be great tablets regardless.

There are more than a few rough edges on the Lenovo K1. In fact, a cheese grater covered in sandpaper has fewer rough edges."

Viruses on Android? Have you actually heard of a SINGLE Android virus in the wild? Or are you repeating the statement made by McAfee saying that they saw a huge increase on Android tablets? Because I do not know of any other source reporting a virus risk increase on Android.

PCWorld are doing the Motorola Xoom 32gb for £329 at the moment, so voted cold because there's better deals out there (picked one up Friday and i can say they're awesome!)

£100 cheaper and it would be a decent deal.
Get the asus

No one has said "its not an iPad2" yet

Not a bad deal but will wait till next year.

Ok Viruses was maybe the wrong term but malware is acurate. After all as it is all an open market on Android anyone can code for it and then vendor it. Even then people may just download apps from any place and load them in. What stops any hacker modifying a game, adding some premium texting code and run in the back ground while you play? Nothing thats what.

It is no different from downloading software from Torrent Sites, you don't know what your getting.
Jailbroken Apple devices suffer the same risk. I don't need a security firm to warn me of those potential risks, common sense does that. To deny it is to delude yourself.

Hot because they have their pricing difference right between the two different storage options.

I think the above few comments need to be out into perspective as there's a lot of android bashing going on these days. True.... A lot of malware does slip on to the market but a bit of common sense and just a touch of responsibility does keep you out of trouble. I've had an android ever since the T-mobile G1 and Nexus One first came out and have never (touch wood) encountered any of the so called android foibles. Admittedly..... My money would be on the asus though.... That IPS screen really is quite special and a hands on play with each contender pays dividends.

Seriously though, just pay the slight bit extra and get a tablet that works.. You could even get an iPad 1 for cheaper than this and get one that you can actually get the apps you want.

Stupidity is the only way of getting caught by these things. When you install something, if it wants permission to use the code you mentioned, it brings up a bright orange exclamation mark with "Services that cost you money" written beside it.

Have you personally ever seen one of these pieces of malware you speak off?

Voted cold because it's not a TouchPad.

Voted cold because I want to join the gang.

I've played with the Xoom but found it really, really heavy, even compared to an iPad which isn't exactly svelte compared to the Galaxy Tab 10.1".

Not actually looked at the respective weights in the spec sheets of course. :-)

You get malware on your computer\laptop\tablet...It's YOU who is the idiot, not the seller of said tablet\computer\laptop or software vendor.

Would you like your botty wiped with that too?

It's the price you pay for an open platform. Don't like it? Don't buy it and join the rest of the mindless foolds that buy an iPad1\2 for those reasons. (Because you're too stupid to discern malicious software).

...Which in fairness, is perfectly ok and normal. Most people don't understand computers and how a virus etc gets downloaded and so on. But these same idiots, just put a sock in it and get on with life instead of having some kind of negative to say about things they don't understand.

Android is way behind the game in terms of a user friendly, smooth ui, which is a valid concern. Wouldn't touch an Android tablet till at least 5.x comes out, it's still blatently a mobile phone operationg system, no matter what anyone says.

Transformer is cheaper

Banned

I know it's so old but I hate you apple suckers so much it hurts me.

O and people buy a transformer!

hmm, better tablets available for similar money (transformer, xoom, galaxy tab) so voted cold. its not a good deal.

on the subject of malware, if you stick to official sources (ie, dont steal stuff!) and use your common sense theres no issue. if your worried, theres plenty of anti virus protection out there, and it really doesnt interfere/slow down the experience. i use lookout, which also has a device tracker if you lose your phone/tablet.

Actually between all 3 differnet options... The first company to not take the **** and follow apple, hopefully other companies will take up the challange.

Verdict from Techradar below. Cold from me, better off getting an Asus/Galaxy Tab/ipad2 depending on your budget.

Lenovo's IdeaPad K1 is a tablet with some bright ideas that can't manage to complete the basics. The strength of tablets is that they're computing without the friction or hassle – straight onto the web or email in seconds from picking it up. If the tablet doesn't reliably turn on, or if the web pages won't scroll properly, what's the point in a tablet?

The problems with the IdeaPad K1 could possibly be fixed with an update, but as it stands, we can't recommend it. Look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the iPad 2 and the Asus Eee Pad Transformer instead.

Voted HOT HOT HOT as it is not made by Apple.

nasty bit of kit.

voted cold bacause:itsnotan ipad, its not a galaxy and becuase its not 100 or so tablets that are much better.

I've now read several reviews of the Lenovo tablet and overall, the assessment appears to be that it is a decent android device that has several positives e.g the thoughtful lenovo user interface (ui) and it comes loaded with useful apps and software etc. Not had a play go on one yet but it appears sufficiently worthy to be up there with the rest of the 'quality' android gang, so heat for that.

Hate to say it but i agree with those saying that there is no truly worthy android contender to match the all round silky smooth iPad experience yet and there wont be for some months to come. Therefore the iPad2 will continue to generate absolute shed loads of profit for apple and android tablets need to price themselves much lower than £399 if they are to sell in big numbers. The £299 price point is getting better but still too high IMO at this time. I bet the sales of some of these android tablets must be so low they must be wondering why they bothered. If you are prepared to wait until the new year, i'd hold off as there should be further price cuts to come.

topazz- Agreed about the software not being up with the almighty,but it had the time and monies to get it spot on,and no doubt with ICS and a bit more smoothing Android may well up there?
As to sales of Android noticed some out of stock on some models on-line,so some are selling?
And the with the Asus Transformer now £300 in a few shops it seems that there clearing the decks for the the second generation in the Prime,and what qualities this brings we shall soon see .

voted cold..eee pad TF is a better deal

I never understand exactly what a "user friendly UI" is meant to look like. My old android (2.2) seems to have a perfectly fine and user friendly UI, as did my 6 year old Nokia. What exactly are people wanting?

It to be basic like iOS? I too would like to know what is so user unfriendly about Android?
