I had the opportunity to pick up a Lenovofrom the local store today and as itâ€™s a new entrant to the Clovertrail tablet market I though it would be worth snapping it up for a test. The unboxing video is below. I havenâ€™t got the keyboard dock yet but that should arrive next week.
At 555 Euro for the 64GB version itâ€™s not the cheapest Windows 8 Clovertrail tablet and the keyboard (with battery inside) is another 150 Euro but Iâ€™m looking forward to seeing if this baby beats other Clovertrail dockables where it really matters â€“ typing. Itâ€™s Lenovo, Iâ€™m hoping, and if it works, I may use this as my blogging PC at MWC in 4 weeks time.
For an 11.6â€ tablet itâ€™s amazingly light â€“ 635gm / 22.4oz and the screen looks nice. A plastic back fells somewhat cheap as does the cover hiding the micro-SD card slot. I love the USB charging feature though!
More first impressions over the next couple of days but feel free to drop questions below. Check out full information, more videos and links in our Lenovo Ideatab Lynx information page.
You can see that itâ€™s charging via a standard USB cable here (in this case a Nokia adaptor.) One of the first things Iâ€™ll report on is charging time. Donâ€™t expect it to be short over a standard USB cable!
