Lenovo IdeaPad A2109 tablet discounted to £170

The Lenovo IdeaPad A2109 tablet is currently on sale at Amazon for £169.97 including delivery. The device is similar to the Google Nexus 7 tablet but packs a few more goodies.

You get the same Nvidia quad-core SoC, the Tegra 3, clocked at 1.3GHz. There's also Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Lenovo's own Mondrian UI, a 9in 1,280 x 800 pixel display, 1GB of Ram, 16GB onboard storage, micro-HDMI port and microSD card slot, dual microphones and dual speakers (with SRS TruMedia technology), a metal rear, air brushed finish, a rear camera, Wi-FI, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS and up to nine hours battery life.

That said, don't expect it to be as portable as the Nexus 7. A bigger screen means a bigger chassis and as Lenovo opted for a thick bezel, you end up with something that is closer in size to an Apple iPad 3 than an Apple iPad Mini.

Given that you can get a 64GB microSD card for less than £30, you should be able to get a tablet with 80GB storage for around £200. A bargain. Check out our review of the IdeaPad A2107, the smaller version of the A2109, here.

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.
