Best Buy is selling for $299 the Lenovo IdeaPad A2109, a 9-inch tablet pre-installed with the year-old Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a speedy 1.2Ghz quad-core Tegra 3 processor. The $299 device sold by the retailer has 16 GB of storage and comes with Wi-Fi connectivity only. The tablet has a thickness of just half an inch and has a rollcage for added durability.
What Else You Need To Know:
- Other specs include a decent 1280 x 800 resolution for the 9-inch touch-screen, 1 GB of RAM, micro SD card support, front (1.3 MP) and rear (3 MP) cameras, HDMI slot, and 2 Cell Li-Ion battery.
- There have been rumors about a similarly spec'd A2107 7-inch tablet, but Lenovo has not yet launched the device.
If you compare it against the Google Nexus 7 and pay an extra $50.00 the Lenovo S2109 package is quite appealing. It has a bigger display, micro SD card support, twin cameras and an HDMI slot.- Sovan Mandal, Good E-Reader
