A couple more questions...

2011-10-16, 9:25 AM



Here it is; went through a couple reviews but havent found any anwsers about this;


1- Is it able to charge "on the go" only with the usb cable? Or do we have to carry both cables?


2- Is the bootloader unlocked? (will we ever be able to play with the OS when/if we ever get ICS sources? Meanwhile, flashing the device with a bloatware-free rom would sound nice)


3- Is Lenevo commited to update its devices to ICS? (I wouldnt ask if you were part of the Android Alliance)



Thankx for your time and consideration.

(The 32gb is up for grabs for 349$CA; thats 150$ less than the Asus, Motorola, etc...!! The cheapest 32gb HC device by far.)

For this price, I can live with a proprietary connector.. and without usb host, for that matter.

32gb + a microSD slot? Yep. Totally can.

Sorry about that, not sure how I missed your post. I see you posted 3 days ago.

1) USB does not have enough power to charge the K1

2) The bootloader was unlocked. And what Bloatware? Almost every thing is removable anyways.

3) ???

BTW the first 2 were answered before :) no biggie
