Usually, when we first hear about an unreleased smartphone or tablet that is “set to come soon”, it happens through leaks that unveil at least part of the gadget’s spec sheet, while leaving... its official branding and ETA to mystery.

Lenovo has decided to break this “tradition”, however, and has made three of its future gadgets official, way ahead of their public release, without let...

lenovo-ideapad-k1

Joining the drove of Honeycomb tablets that were released in 2011, Lenovo’s IdeaPad K1 became the company’s first foray in the Android tablet market. A year later, it looks like Lenovo is...  ready to drop support for the K1, but not without first giving away some parting gift.

Lenovo is releasing a basic and non-customized Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the IdeaPad K1...

No matter how hard Intel is trying, things don’t seem to go too well for them in the mobile market. According to sources quoted by Digitimes, the sales of the Intel-based smartphones aren’t... going so well, and now two of their main partners, Motorola and Lenovo, are delaying their own Medfield-based tablets (and probably phones as well) at least until November.

At that point, we’ll prob...

IdeaTab-S2110-Tablet-front

If there’s one thing to take away from the current incredible demand for the Google Nexus 7, that is great specs alone won’t sell a tablet. Cutting-edge specs must be accompanied by an affordable... price point. Hoping to successfully apply this model, Chinese juggernaut Lenovo is now offering the IdeaPad S2110 tablet at a very attractive introductory price.

The IdeaPad S2110 is one of the better l...

Jelly-bean-easter-egg

Android = diversity! You’ve probably heard this one before, but what does it actually mean? While it’s a fact that the principle of diversity is as valid as ever in... the mobile industry, different groups of people have varied opinions on how useful the diversity of the Android ecosystem actually is, in its current state.

If you happen to notice that the t...

Lenovo is having a great year. In spite of falling PC shipments worldwide, the Chinese electronics mammoth is about to overtake HP and become the largest... PC maker in the world. That would be a momentous event, because it would mark the first time in history when a Chinese company attained the first position in any major industry. Lenovo is not doing s...

Lenovo K860

The high-end Android smartphone market niche might not be overly crowded at this time, but the situation could change soon enough. Aside from the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X, which have... seen the light of day recently, the LG Optimus 4X HD, Huawei Ascend D Quad, HTC One XXL and maybe even the Meizu MX Quad-core could stir things up over the next few months.

Another quad-core beast...

Lenovo LePhone S880

Samsung’s Galaxy Note, the first-ever “phablet”, obviously opened tech users’ appetite for larger and brighter screens, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that everyone is now trying... to come out with their own phone/tablet hybrids.

Lenovo has just outed its first attempt at this market niche in China (where else?), and, while the new gadget does come with a large screen and a...

LePad-A2107

In a tech world where pretty much everything has been done at least once, it’s very difficult to truly innovate.

However, while most manufacturers are simply doing their best to... come up with the thinnest gadgets (0.000001 inch slimmer!) or the ones with the crispest screens, Lenovo has unveiled a tablet with at least one truly original feature.

The LePad A2107, the com...

Lenovo, the second largest PC company in the world, is doing quite well in the smartphone market and is planning to release up to 40 new models during the second half of 2012.  In 2011, the Chinese... company, which bought IBM’s entire PC business in 2005, built and sold six million smartphones. For 2012, the company wants to triple that number to 18 million units. To do this, Lenovo will la...
