The A1000 Ideapad runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and a dual core MediaTek processor moving at a clock speed of 1.2GHz. Its front panel is mostly given to a 7-inch capacitive multi-touch screen which delivers visuals in a 1024 x 600p resolution. The manufacturer has only dropped one camera onto the device, a 0.3MP front sensor that sits above the display. The back of the A1000 hides a 3500mAh battery which will apparently render more than 8 hours of browsing over Wi-Fi.
For people who prefer a super sized handset over a regular smartphone, this Lenovo Ideapad may be a tablet at heart, but it has voice calling to offer. The system works on 1GB of RAM and features 4GB of onboard memory. To keep users from feeling the pinch when it comes to storage space for their entertainment content, the company has also thrown in a microSD card slot for allowing up to 32GB of additional locker room.
The Lenovo A1000 can be purchased for a price of Rs 8,999 whenever it is back on shelves. We’re wondering whether the quickly nailed up ‘Out of stock’ sign on the company’s store has anything to do with an oversight. What are the odds of the device having been sold out in India so fast? Even Flipkart is only accepting pre-orders for the tablet at present.
