Basic Android tablet priced at $199, ships Oct. 27

Lenovo has quietly begun taking sales for its new IdeaPad Tablet A1. The company had announced the entry-level device back in early September with similar lack of fanfare. The seven-inch device, which runs Android 2.3, is priced from $199 to $249, depending on capacity.

The IdeaPad A1 runs on a low-cost, 1GHz TI OMAP 3622 ARM Cortex-A8 processor, a front two-megapixel camera, and a rear five-megapixel camera. The base built-in storage is as little as 2GB, with an optional 16GB version. Lenovo claims the battery runs for up to five hours, or up to seven hours when just browsing.

The 2GB version, available in black, is priced at $199. A 16GB version, which comes in a choice of black, blue, white or pink, will cost $249. Lenovo will begin shipping new orders for the IdeaPads on October 27.
