I gave up on the A1, too much promise, not enough facts and footage. We'll see in a month if I did the right thing or not
Not a bad choice I was very interested in the Flyer when it first came out. It is one nice device. And now that it's down to $300 it's an even more attractive choice.

"Lenovo Ideapad A1 Review and Rooting guide"

More on Lenovo Ideapad A1 as it is presented throughout the world.

Sometimes the translation is rough but not hard to understand.

A fair review. Contents table to the left side.

Price bump alert for Lenovo A1

$229.

http://www.geek.com/articles/mobile/...-229-20111012/

As the article on Geek.com explains, not sure why price raise on the Lenovo site.

Could just be for early adopters, until Amazon gets the item.

Could be that Lenovo has realized that the Amazon Fire isn't being sold outside the US, at least for a while.

Even at 229USD, the Lenovo is better.
Or let me put it another way. I will never buy the Kindle Fire to use as a tablet with only 6GB of memory and no way to add.

You can take that cloud and smoke it!

I just saw it on Geek.

I thought the earlier event was a reduction of the $250 16GB A1 by $20
whereas this was an increase of the 2GB from 199USD to 229USD.

Looks like I may have crossed some wires.

Anyway, thanks for prompting me to look.

Looks like the A1 has been removed from the Lenovo website. Can anyone find it?

You have to select the A1 from a drop down menu. Maybe that page hasn't been updated yet to include the A1.

It never ceases to amaze me how many times companies self destruct. It's hard to get momentum going and when they do, they start doing bone head moves like this. Jacking up the price, then pulling the product from the web site.

Someone just pointed this out to me:

This model is temporarily unavailable for purchase on lenovo.com
So, there are pictures and descriptions, but you can't buy it. Just last night you could customize and checkout with a November ship date. What the heck is going on?
