Lenovo is all set to enter the tablet market by launching two tablets viz. the IdeaPad K1 and ThinkPad tablets. Lenovo has announced the UK release for both the tablets along with their launch dates and pricing.

The IdeaPad K1 tablet is targeted at normal users where as the ThinkPad is focused at business users. Both the tablets are powered by a Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor. They will run on Android 3.1 as well as sport Lenovo’s SocialTouch app.

The IdeaPad K1 packs a 10.1 inch WXGA1280×800 screen, a 5 megapixel rear camera and a front facing camera of 2 megapixel. The tablet weighing just 1.6 lbs also comes with 40 pre-loaded apps like Adobe and Amazon.

On the other hand, the ThinkPad tablet also comes with the same specs just as above. However, the tablet also boasts few additional features to lure business users. It comes with Citrix Receiver used for remote network access as well as security features such as data security and anti-theft software. Also bundled with the tablet are usual business programs which include Documents To Go along with Microsoft Office.

Additionally, launch of the Lenovo App Shop has also been announced by Lenovo which will allow downloading apps for both IdeaPad K1 as well as ThinkPad tablet.

The IdeaPad K1 is expected to hit the store shelves in August with a price tag of £369 where as the ThinkPad is said to be out in September with a price tag of £399.
