Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Tablet Review
The IdeaPad K1 offers middle of the road performance at a price to match.
Reading eBooks on the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 is relatively simple, as the Android Market grants you access to just about every eReader application out there. Once you've selected your eReader of choice, you can open your title through the app, and start reading from there. Many eReader apps will allow you to tap or swipe to turn pages, and change font size and color if you so wish. The Amazon Kindle App is available on this tablet.
If you elect to use the market-leading eReader app, the Kindle App, you can access Amazon's brobdingnagian eBook store through the link at the top of the screen once you've opened the application. After you've linked your account to the application, turned on wireless, and added your billing info, you can simply tap the title you would like to buy, and your download will begin shortly.
Because the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 has access to the Android Market, the file format support is limited almost only by which apps you run for your eReader. Different stores will use different formats, so it's a bit of a pain to mix and match, but if you really like one interface, you can always use a program like Calibre to convert files to the appropriate format on your computer.
Newspapers & Magazines
Also present in the Kindle App is a newsstand where you can buy periodicals of your choice much like you would an eBook, or instead you can subscribe to them, and download new editions as they become available. The process for purchasing these is the same as it is for eBooks.
