Meet the A1000
The 7-inch Lenovo tablet is a semi-bare bones device that features an equalizer that makes audio sound great while using headphones, but its low-res screen and buggy demeanor make it unappealing.
The inclusion of a microSD expansion slot is one of the most useful features of the IdeaTab A1000, but with plenty of other better performing budget tablets touting the same spec, it's not a big selling point.
If holding the tablet in portrait orientation, the headphone jack and Micro-USB port are located on the top edge.
The tablet's back isn't much to look at, unless you like to read the fine print.
Underwhelming screen, meet underwhelming performance
The A1000 sports a boringly low screen resolution that detracts from what would otherwise be stunning HD content.
Thin and light, but not sleek
Although the tablet boasts similar dimensions as other 7-inch tablets, its design is rather austere.
Front-facing camera and speaker
The A1000 houses one front-facing camera and two speakers, even though only one is visible in this photo. Trust me. It's there.
