Bluetooth/Bluetooth Settings
You can establish a wireless connection with any other Bluetooth compatible device using Bluetooth technology. Examples of such Bluetooth compatible devices may include stereo earphones, keyboards, etc.
Since a Bluetooth-enabled device communicates with other devices by radio waves, you do not have to position your IdeaPad Tablet K1 to be directly opposite the other device. You simply need to ensure that the maximum distance between the two devices does not exceed 10 m (about 32 feet). However, please note that the Bluetooth connection can sometimes be interfered with by barriers such as walls or other electronic devices.
Your IdeaPad Tablet K1 supports V2.0 Bluetooth specification. To ensure the interactive operation between your IdeaPad Tablet K1 and another Bluetooth-enabled device, please use only Lenovo-approved accessories applicable to your IdeaPad Tablet K1 model. Also, check with the manufacturer of the other device to determine whether the device is compatible with your IdeaPad Tablet K1.
In some cases, the use of Bluetooth may be restricted. Please consult with your local authorities or service provider.
Using functions requiring Bluetooth technology or running these functions in the background will consume the battery power of your IdeaPad Tablet K1 at a faster than average rate, also reducing the service life of your battery. You can perform the following functions in the Bluetooth Settings:
  • Bluetooth devices: After Bluetooth has been turned on, your IdeaPad Tablet K1 will automatically display a list of any Bluetooth-enabled devices it can find in the nearby area (i.e. scan for devices).
