When the top guns at companies talk people listen. “We’re very excited to see that TV shows and movies streaming from Netflix will be available on Lenovo’s family of Android-powered tablets,” said Bill Holmes, Netflix vice president of Business Development. So the key words are Lenovo, Netflix, and most importantly will be. Netflix made easy, via Lenovo’s, IdeaPad K1 Tablet, the first line of tablets equipped with the necessary hardware: HDMI out and DRM in (digital rights management), and Netflix video-streaming support, so is it all hype? This guy thinks so, check it out:

Don’t panic, this has been debunked, an automatic update should correct and bugs like the guy ‘thought’ he had in the video. The IdeaPad K1 is running Android 3.1 (Honeycomb) on an Nvidia Tegra 2 T20 processor, with 1GB of RAM, on a 10.1-in display with 32GB of memory. It also has a 2MP front camera and a 5MP rear camera, 2 Cell Li-Polymer battery, and WiFi b/g/n connectivity. The only catch is, gotta have the hardware inside, no updates can help you. The optimized movie app experience is exclusive to the Lenovo family of tablets presently. First Netflix and Lenovo, who will jump on board the Netflix flight next?
