Email

The Lenovo IdeaPad K1 has a native email application where you can link your POP/IMAP/Exchange accounts to your tablet, or you can link your Google GMail account to the Gmail application (much easier). Both apps offer a visually appealing interface with a natural layout to converse with friend and colleague alike via the internet, and both apps will allow you to perform most of the typically supported tasks that could be accomplished with email, including attaching files.

Web Browsing

Users of Google's Chrome browser at home will enjoy a very familiar experience with the Android 3 browser. Despite its re-skin, most of the same options like multi-tabbed browsing, disappearing URL bar, incognito browsing, multiple windows, and bookmarks. To click links, you can tap the hyperlink text, and if the font is just too small, you can pinch to zoom in or out to your heart's content. Beyond that, the experience is relatively the same as it is on your home computer. The Lenovo IdeaPad K1 also supports flash, unlike the iPad and iPad 2, so you shouldn't notice many missing page parts.
