lenovo_tablet_720_a1000

Lenovo is one of those interesting hardware makers in that they’ve quietly made plenty of Android devices over the year. I say quietly because it’s very rare that you see one of their tablets in the real world, especially in the United States. This goes doubly for smartphones. As to ...
