Is there really any more space for a new entry in the tablet wars? [firstpara] The answer for Chinese tech giant Lenovo, is a resounding yes! It is preparing to jump right into the thick of battle with the new Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet K1.

The IdeaPad Tablet K1 is the first of its kind from Lenovo.

It is in for a tough go, as many of its competitors are at least in their second or third iteration, as notes.

First-generation hardware could be understandably a little rougher on the edges, or so most people will think.

Especially in the heavy presence of more established, more proven adversaries, the IdeaPad has to break that very perception, if it is to establish a foothold in the market. Hey, if Lenovo was able to make its name in the equally-competitive laptop arena, we wouldn’t be surprised if they make a name for themselves in the tablet market as well.

The IdeaPad is as sleek as tablets come, and its specs are telling of the fact that it should have no problem competing. It boasts a 10.1-inch HD touchscreen, an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core chip, 1 GB of RAM, along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

It is available in 16, 32 and 64 GB capacities—specs that are pretty much standard in today’s market. Just as most new offerings present, this one is equipped with dual cameras, a 2-megapixel camera on the front and a 5-megapixel shooter on the back.

It packs powerful software too, backed by Android 3.1 Honeycomb, and pre-loaded with 30 apps for gaming, music, productivity, social networking and more. So let’s say it: the IdeaPad K1, based on the numbers, is just as capable as its competitors. But what kind of push is Lenovo willing to make to gain considerable market share?

In the meantime, check out the gallery below to see the IdeaPad K1 from different sides.
