We found 147 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
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. Rick said no and pointed toward Lenovo's line of Yoga tablets as an alternative. 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
As part of a series of education-oriented product announcements, Dell is introducing the Venue 10, a Lollipop-enabled Android tablet. The device, which will have a "Pro" sibling that runs Windows 8.1, is set to debut in the spring and will be Google Apps for Education certified. Read More
Following the, uh, runaway success that was the Galaxy Note Edge, Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S6 (or whatever they call it) at MWC next month in two trims: curved and not curved. At least, that's what Bloomberg is saying.
They're probably right. We've read a handful of pretty reliable reports to date that at least one version of the Galaxy S6 would have a Note Edge-style curved display, so Bloomberg is just piling on to confirm that here - it's not new information in and of itself. Read More
Think of the number one billion. A billion of just about anything is a lot - people, bananas, cars, pints of novelty ice cream flavors. According to a report published by market research firm Strategy Analytics, the number of Android powered smartphones shipped last year was approximately one billion, forty-one million, seven hundred thousand (give or take a few tractor-trailers worth).
