Lenovo Ideapad A1 spotted in the wild

The Ideapad A1 was submitted for FCC’s approval yesterday

There could be more tablets from Lenovo after the dual release of Ideapad K1 and Thinkpad Tablet. A new tablet, codenamed Ideapad A1-07 hit FCC yesterday, making it the third in a row of possible releases from the Chinese laptop giant. No specs were confirmed then, but a couple of leaked photos by Engadget today reveal that the tablet will have a 7” screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. It could also feature a Broadcom GPS unit, 3G wireless with a SIM slot, and a microSD slot as well. A 3,700mAh battery should provide enough juice for close to 7-8 hrs of sensible use. Like most of today’s tablets, this one is also expected to sport both front- and rear-facing cameras.

Rumors of a 7” tablet surfaced last December, but no news surfaced after that about that machine. In April Netbooknews reported of a leaked roadmap of Lenovo that suggested another 7” tablet sporting dual-core ARM powered tablet with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. We are not sure if we are talking about two different 7 inchers here, but one thing for sure – Lenovo has been keeping itself quite busy these days.
