Another day, another tablet – and the Lenovo IdeaPad P1 is a new model that has just been introduced. This will be powered by Windows 7, and that alone ought to caution the more informed out there. After all, have you actually seen a Windows 7 tablet that was actually extremely successful in the market? I rest my case. Still, perhaps Lenovo is able to create some form of magic with the IdeaPad P1, so I would not want to shoot it down too son. Sporting a 10.1″ case, you will find that the P1 is rather beefy inside – well stocked with a a 1.5GHz Intel processor, a 1280 x 800 capacitive touchscreen display, connectivity options such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and USB 2.0, and a microSD memory card slot. Memory and storage space are variable, where you can stash in up to 2GB DDR2 RAM and a maximum of a 64GB SSD.
In front lies a 2-megapixel webcam, while you can also use a stylus just in case your fingers are occupied elsewhere at the moment. We are quite keen on the 14.5mm thin enclosure – which is decent for a Windows 7 device, although it is nearly 50% thicker when compared to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. No idea on pricing, but it ought to roll out sometime before the year is over.
