Re: Ice Cream Sandwich for Ideapad K1

2012-03-13, 21:44 PM

Seems to me that there is a whiff of "class action lawsuit" in the air if Lenovo does not deliver.  They released the information to the press AND, at least for some time, included the information on the product page of their website - NOT a vendor website, mind you.

 

It has already been stated by some that it was the specific reason they chose the K1 over other tablets.

 

To me, the worst part of the situation is that Lenovo will not confirm or deny the situation when just about every other manufacturer has done so for their products.  Even if their answer is truly "no," there will be many upset customers (and perhaps a lawsuit, or two), but it would at least allow for people to move on and either live with what they have, load a custom rom, or dump the piece of ...

 

I am not on facebook, but has anyone that is on facebook tried inundating their page with complaints so that others contemplating a Lenovo purchase is aware of this debacle?

Mark,

 

I'm sure a lot of frustration comes from the silence of Lenovo about major problems. I think that people here prefer your last post rather than another day without any update. Not having an official answer is an update. A poor one but it's better than nothing.

 

Now, please tell your boss at the next meeting that people have bought the K1 after they read on LENOVO'S WEBSITE that ICS was AVAILABLE ! I'm one of them, it is very frustrating ! I know that you know it, but I hope people will not stop to express their opinions until this issue will be resolved. Lenovo has to resolved this issue.

 

To be honnest, I think the K1 will start to be the biggest fail of tablet's history if Lenovo do nothing, not because of the K1 itself but because of Lenovo letting their customers without necessary parts (Power adapter, USB host...) and their lies (ICS was NOT available and the source code Lenovo has provided is non-functionnal even if you flag the Source Code Thread as SOLVED. It is NOT true). For sure it will have an impact on other Lenovo's product.

 

Please keep us informed  more often about major problems we are facing. Almost 3 weeks without being informed about these big issues is not an acceptable option.

 

Thank you.

Regardless of ICS, this tablet has issues and we have not seen Lenovo even try and resolve the current issues. You realize that if you abandon the K1, the fallout for your next tablets will be extreme. You will be known as the Samsung of tablets.

Please try and resolve our issues, if we are not receiving support because of ICS developement let us know. Your lack of support and customer service is sad.

Re: Ice Cream Sandwich for Ideapad K1

I have actually found Samsung support/service to be superior to Lenovo's.  I have iPads for my business, and a Galaxy Tab Plus and K1 for personal use.

 

I know Samsung upset a lot of customers when they stated the older tabs are not getting ICS because of hardware (512MB ram, single core, etc) limitations that can't handle ICS along with their skin - BUT AT LEAST THEY STATED SO.  At least you are an informed consumer and can make your decisions appropriately.  At least with Samsung, it's their older products and you can kind of see their point as ICS was still being worked on.  With the K1, it is fully capable to run them (shown by the fact tabs with same/similar specs will be getting ICS, or already have them), and was issued when ICS was already a "go."   I don't expect any upgrade to Jelly Bean (Android 5) as that is still being developed and won't be fully baked until later this year, but I believe ICS is a reasonable expectation (and  I'm sure other companies with superior support WILL give Jelly Bean to their customers - even for discontinued products, as long as they are hardware capable).

 

People complained about the proprietary connector and the lack of a USB host cable at first - BUT THEY HAVE ONE NOW AND IT'S BEEN OUT FOR MONTHS.

 

With Samsung, you know which tabs/phones are getting ICS, and which are not.  With Lenovo, you know NOTHING because first they say "yes," then they say "no,"  then they say NOTHING when their customers ask "wha?"

I don't know Mark, and have never dealt with him, but I would like to say that "Mark Bashing." does nothing except to discourage someone (and the only one) who is at least TRYING to get answers/solutions.

 

If you want to blame someone, blame the ones who rightfully should be explaining the situaiton - the corporate management.

IMO, Mark is not the one who is making these decisions, he is simply the only "mouthpiece" from Lenovo offering any input.  I am sure his hands are tied, in terms of what information he actually has and what is able to be released. 

 

I am glad to see that he posts anything, whether it is an update or not. 

 

IMO, we should try to spread our concerns and issues to people outside of the the Lenovo users and employee circles.  Sites like Phandroid.com, Android Central, Android Tablets may be interested in hearing the issues.  Unless Lenovo does make great strides with these issues, most of us will not buy any future Lenovo products - however they have already sold us something.  Possibly, we should go back and update any online reviews with this information. 

 

Ask yourself this, would you have bought the K1 if there many bad reviews and concerns about the product.  ???
