IdeaPad A1 from Lenovo is expected to be back in the shelves starting 21st November with the company restarting their order lines again. This after their stocks were completely drained in October. The 7 inch tablets would this time come with the color options of black, white, blue and pink.
Other technical specifications of the tablet remain unchanged with the 1 GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 3622 single core processor along with 512 MB of RAM with the OS being Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The 7 inch display has a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixel while the front acing camera would be of 0.3 MP resolution and the rear camera of 3 MP resolution. For connectivity the IdeaPad A1 would have 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1.
However, with everything else remaining the same, there has been some strange developments on the pricing front. Like the version with 2 GB of on-board storage has been priced at $229 (and not $199 as was initially announced), the same with 16 GB of memory has been priced at $249. This is weird as for just $20 more, one can pick up an IdeaPad A1 that offers 16 GB of storage.
What makes things even more interesting is that the 16 GB IdeaPad can still be picked up for $199 by using the coupon code USPA2M1104. Lenovo hasn’t stated how long the offer will last and so on, which means it makes sense to make full use of the offer while it exists.
