I’m just wondering when all of these tablet makers (or should we just call them iPad competitors?) are going to learn that anything priced over $200 just isn’t going to work.
The Lenovo K1 Ideapad 10.1-Inch Tablet is no different than the rest of the Android tablets that are coming to market way overpriced.
You aren’t going to compete with the iPad on brand or features, which should be obvious to all.
But where you can compete, as HP learned with the HP TouchPad, is with price.
The Lenovo IdeaPad K1 is going to be running the Honeycomb OS and have actual access to the Android Market, but what about the Kindle Fire that about to be released for only $199?
Even with the straight up Honeycomb Android OS and the NVIDIA Tegra2 processor, I think the IdeaPad K1 is going to be a huge flop like all the other iPad competitors.
Hopefully someone will figure out that price competitive advantage that can be achieved competing against the iPad.
And maybe, just maybe, that someone is Amazon.
We’ll soon find out…
