Lenovo seems to be on tablet overdrive right now. The Chinese electronics major dominated the limelight with three of its IdeaPad and ThinkPad tablet PCs, and now the FCC has cleared new Lenovo tablets in its listing under the names IdeaPad A1-07 and LePad A1-07.
As usual, details are being kept under wraps, though most likely they appear to be the same device under varying names to be sold in different markets. The only semi-concrete information about the product points to both the tablets having Bluetooth radio built into them as per the FCC listing.
It is also being speculated that the tablet might actually be the slimmer version of the LePad which has been promised in March. Also, with the model showing ‘A1-07’, the tablet is expected to be smaller with the 07, indicating a seven inch screen, while the IdeaPad K1 has a 10 inch display. If that’s the case, then it would be safe to assume that the cost of the A1-07 would also be less, since it is smaller in size. The LePad with its 10 inch display costs less than $500.
For the operating system, it is expected to be Android stealing the show, as is the case in all other Lenovo tablets, with Zone UI built on top of it.
