Lenovo clearing out IdeaPad K1 tablet, gives away free keyboard

The Lenovo IdeaPad K1 has been discounted to only £199.99 including free delivery at, a device that also comes with a keyboard dock that doesn’t convert the tablet into a hybrid laptop like the Asus Eee Pad transformer.

The tablet is similar to many Android-based tablets that were launched in 2011, including Lenovo’s own Thinkpad tablet.

There’s a 1GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 10.1in 1,280 x 700 capacitive display, Android 3.1 Honeycomb, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, up to 10 hours battery life, a microSD card reader, a rear 5-megapixel camera, a front-facing 2-megapixel one, an HDMI connector but no micro-USB port (although there’s a proprietary connector for that keyboard accessory).

Lenovo has bundled more than 30 popular apps with the tablet including Documents To Go. At 750g, though, and with a thickness of 13mm, it is fairly thick and bulky compared to the likes of the Toshiba AT300.

As for the keyboard, it is a bog-standard laptop-like model with a small “Enter” key and unfortunately no touchpad or additional ports.
