    I'm going to buy the Lenovo A820
    It doesn't come with Google Play as standard

    Will I have any trouble installing one of the standard ROMs?

    Can someone point me to a newbie guide to rooting and installing a new ROM

    I can't see any problems installing google play on the phone.

    See these reviews
    Lenovo A820 - User opinions and reviews

    as there's some links for rooting but you MUST be 100% certain you get the correct files for your phone otherwise don't bother rooting until absolutely sure.Some of the reviews are negative but that's the same for most devices.I run a Lenovo Ideapad and they are reasonably well built.

    Also another useful thread,

    HTH :)
  3. I moved the thread to the forum for discussing tablets that do not have a dedicated forum of their own.
