We found 150 results for 'lenovo'
We heard about Lenovo's Honeycomb-sporting ThinkPad (aka Think Slate) tablet yesterday, but I guess that just wasn't enough rumor coverage for Lenovo. In the same PowerPoint where they found the info on the ThinkPad, tech blog This Is My Next has also stumbled across a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet that could possibly come out sometime in Q4. While there is little known at this point, here are the (rather vague) details from the leak:
- 7 Inch, 1280x800 display
- Dual Core ARM processor
- "Le OS / Honeycomb" Android with Lenovo UI
- Available Q4 2011
It looks like it should have the same custom interface as the ThinkPad, which we don't really have a lot of information on. Read More
In case you aren't sold on any of the current crop of Honeycomb tablets, Lenovo is about to throw their hat in the ring with the ThinkPad Tablet (also called the Think Slate). The folks at This is my next got ahold of a PowerPoint with all the specs, and this tablet can certainly hold its own amongst the competition:
- NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
- Android 3.0 with custom Lenovo UI
- 1280 x 800 IPS 10.1" display
- 16, 32, and 64 GB models
- USB, micro USB, mini HDMI ports
- Full SD card reader
- 3G and possible 4G connectivity
Interestingly enough, the Think Slate will also ship with two key optional accessories: a pen and a "keyboard portfolio case," which seem to mimic the HTC Flyer and Asus Transformer, respectively. Read More
The idea sounds good in theory: a device that has the comfort and usability of a laptop combined with the portability of a tablet. Lenovo's LePad was rumoured earlier this year and it has finally been unveiled together with the IdeaPad U1 Hybrid Netbook partner.
The LePad comes with a customised version of Android 2.2 (called LeOS) and runs on a 1.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The U1 comes with Windows 7 Home Premium and runs on a 1.2 Ghz Intel Core i5-540UM (with an i7 option). Read More
Lenovo has a strong name in China, and hasn’t faced much competition from Apple there. In fact, they’ve even mocked Apple about “wasting” their presence in the enormous market. However, as the iPad is set for release in Hong Kong this Friday – and is expected to be fully available in China soon – Lenovo plans on stepping up their game and challenging Apple with an Android tablet.
Other than the fact the tablet (the “LePad”) will run Android, no real specs have been revealed. Read More
OK, so I have some good news and bad news. First, the bad news: if, like me, you were looking forward to some hot notebook/tablet hybrid action with Lenovo’s U1, well, you might as well keep watching that YouTube video, because it doesn’t look like it’s going to hit store shelves anytime soon. And by ‘anytime soon’, I mean ever.
That’s right, Lenovo canned their Skylight operating system, which is what the notebook was to run when it was in tablet mode. Read More
If corporate patent litigation was a soap opera, it would be at once the most interesting and most snooze-inducing show on television. The latest twist comes from a three-year-old suit by Fujifilm against Motorola Mobility, which was still a Google company instead of a Lenovo one when the suit first started. Fuji alleged that Moto violated three camera patents and one wireless patent in its phones without licensing. A San Francisco court invalidated Fuji's claims on all but one of them, so Moto will have to pay for the privilege of one camera patent. Read More
Not long ago, a $250 unlocked smartphone was probably asking for trouble - a sketchy processor, WVGA display, potato-resolution camera, and 3G were basically what you could expect. But as technology has marched forward, component costs for things like 1080p LCD panels, 13MP camera sensors, and LTE have become much cheaper. Read More
Motorola's President and COO, Rick Osterloh, hosted a Twitter chat yesterday under the hashtag #AskRickO in which he answered a few questions regarding the company's expansion, release plans, device updates, and showed his current phone and watch setups.
The most interesting bit of information came in reply to Sumer Broota, who asked him whether Motorola had any plans to release a tablet this year. Read More
This week at MWC, Intel revealed its 2015 and 2016 mobile chipset lineup, as well as the fact that the company is adopting a similar naming scheme to its Core line of processors with these new chips. They've been dubbed x3, x5, and x7, and as with the Core processors, bigger is generally better. Read More
