This is a quick demonstration of the Lenovo Ideapad A1 running on Android ICS 4.0.4 through Over-The-Air (OTA) update from Lenovo. The first step to updating this is to obtain a ICS ROM first, then run the updating process built-into the Android OS. Audio sync may be a little off, but nevertheless, it worked pretty well, and somewhat less laggy than the original 2.3 gingerbread ROM. Note that this version has the * soft buttons * in ICS which is good!

The video will demonstrate some of the features, such as home screen, settings, wifi, video, sound, video playback, games loading and animation. Enjoy this short demonstration. Some small hiccups here and there e.g. screen brightness slider misses, slight delay thinking what to do next.. lol...

Oh yes, if you happen to brick your lenovo A1 for some reasons, you can visit to see how to unbrick it :)
