Is the Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 a good alternative to the Nexus 10? Find out in our full review of this 9-inch Android tablet.
Lenovo’s IdeaTab A2109 is yet another tablet aiming itself at the £200-ish price point. The idea, of course, is that those who can’t afford top notch tablets, but want to steer clear of the kind of drek that tends to clog up the very lowest end of the market, will gravitate around this price point creating plenty of market for different manufacturers.
There’s a logic to the view, but people are also looking for quality products, and as we’ve said before, the Nexus 7 is the target everyone has to shoot at in this price range.
Lenovo isn’t perhaps the first name you would associate with a mid-range Android tablet, but the company has in fact been around doing Android for a while, and it brings some interesting features to its £200 IdeaTab A2109.

The HTC One is the new flagship Android phone, running Sense 5, and is HTC’s attempt to compete with the likes of the Galaxy S4.
HTC has unveiled its new flagship device for 2013. The HTC One builds on the well-received One X from last year, and develops the company’s focus on design, imaging and sound.
The HTC One features a 4.7” display, the same size as on the One X, but upgraded to full 1080p HD, and retains its position as the best in class. The camera has been downrated to 4 megapixels, but those pixels are considerably larger than on other smartphones. Coupled with a fast f/2.0 lens and optical image stabilisation the phone should excel at low light photography.
The One sports dual front facing stereo speakers, as well as dual microsphone that record at different ranges, enabling high quality recording even in very loud environments.
