August 18, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Home is where the heart is – for Lenovo, that is. The company has just released in China their new tablet LePad A1-07. The home market release may have come first, but it is seen as a first step towards introducing the device to other countries soon.

Though the company is yet to disclose the tablet’s world wide release dates or other details, the spotting of the LePad A1-07 at the FCC makes us think that a US launch is imminent.

The LePad A1-07 boasts a 7-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 and runs the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system. Powered by a 1 GHz TI OMAP 3622 processor, it has under its hood 512MB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage capabilities.

The tablet comes with dual cameras. A 3 megapixel rear facing camera for pictures and a VGA resolution front facing camera is also included. The tablet offers a GPS, Wi-Fi, a microUSB port, microSD card slot and flash support. A 3550mAh battery allows 7 hours of continuous operations.

The device will be yours to pick in shades of black, white, pink and blue. I measures 195 x 125 x 11.95 mm and weighs 400 grams. In China, the company has attached a price tag of 2500 Yuan (that is about $391).

The company is gearing up to launch their new tablets, a ThinkPad with Android and the IdeaPad P1 with Windows 7 soon in the US. However, the picture is unclear about the pricing and launch of the LePad A1-07 tablet. Stay tuned as we will make efforts to bring you all those details soon.
