Star of the Night
*Mini review up ahead*
The Ideapad K1 comes with an application that allows ending running applications without having to enter the settings. Pre-installed full version of Document-To-Go is definitely a plus point.
It also comes with a rotational lock and a HOME button where holding it allows you to capture screen AND also acts as a sensor for up / down swipes for certain functions. The Ideapad K1 also comes with
The Ideapad K1 is on the curvy look, compared to other similar tables it could actually look bigger BUT the curves mades the K1 a winner when it comes to long-term usage as it hurts less.
On the down side, it lacks a scratch resistant screen and the battery only resides on the Keyboard dock. Another factor of concern to me is the Micro HDMI output.
Overall – it’s still a great Android based tablet, and not something competitor brands should overlook. 🙂
