Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 tablet goes on sale for £184.98

Lenovo has debuted the IdeaTab A2109 tablet for £199.99 at PCWorld. But until tonight, you can get £5 when you use COMP100 at checkout. In addition, buy a case like the Belkin New iPad Folio case for £9.99 and get £20 off the price of your tablet.

The overall price is therefore £184.98 including delivery. The tablet, which was first introduced at IFA 2012 in Germany back in September, is an interesting inbetweener product that is a worthy upgrade from its little brother, the A2107.

It is actually not a bad tablet for what it offers and is possibly a better purchase compared to the Google Nexus 7 16GB version which costs £160. Like the latter, it has 1GB of RAM, a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 system-on-chip, 16GB onboard storage and a 1,280x800 display.

But its display is slightly bigger at 9in, plus it has a microSD card slot (which means that 64GB cards can be added for around £30), a microHDMI port, a 3-megapixel rear camera and a front facing HD one. Lenovo claims that the tablet can last for up to eight hours which is average. Other notable features include a thickness of 11.6mm and a weight of 570g.

We don’t like the bezel and the fact that it runs “only” on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. But otherwise, it provides with a compelling alternative to other tablets including the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Motorola XOOM 2 families.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
