    Report: Lenovo Prepping A Quad-Core LePad Tablet PC For Early 2012

    Lenovo is reportedly working on a quad-core LePad (ThinkPad in other markets) tablet. This comes from a Digitimes report that credits upstream supply chain partners as the source. The news, if it’s true, is somewhat predictable as tablet makers move to dual-core CPU platforms. Lenovo has seen a fair amount of success in the tablet market thanks to its solid ThinkPad Android tablet. Read More

    The Lenovo LePad S2005, A 5-inch Tabletphone For The Chinese Market

    Lenovo, taking a page out of the Android history books, just announced the LePad S2005 tabletphone for the Chinese market. This Gingerbread device pushes the recent trend of supersize phones into tablet territory. But that’s been done before. The Dell Streak rocked a 5-inch screen with pride way back in 2010. However, way back then, the EVO 4G stole most of the limelight, leaving the… Read More

    Gartner: Lenovo Replaces Dell As No. 2 PC Maker, HP Still On Top And Growing

    What’s that noise about living in a post-PC era? The personal computer market is actually growing per a new preliminary Gartner report. The research company found third quarter PC shipments as a whole are up 3.2% over the same period in 2010, totaling 91.8 million units. This number is slightly less than Gartner’s earlier projections and the Western European market is partly to blame. Read More

    Lenovo And YouTube Announce Space Lab: The Ultimate Science Fair

    When I was just a wee pupil, an excellent science fair project didn’t get you much. At best, you walked away with a blue ribbon and the satisfaction of knowing your paper mache volcano was better than your friends’. These days, a great science project can win you much more, like the opportunity to attend a rocket launch in Japan. Way cooler, yes? Thanks to a partnership between… Read More

  • Get $100 Off The 64GB Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Before It’s Even Out

    Get $100 Off The 64GB Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Before It’s Even Out

    I like this trend. The Lenovo IdeaPad K1 is the latest non-iPad tablet to find deep discounts as soon as it’s announced. Similar cuts were made to the TouchPad and other Honeycomb tablets shortly after launch. This affilate deal comes by way of LogicBuy.com who is offering a clean $100 off the MSRP of the just-announced 64GB Lenovo K1 tablet. That brings the 64GB flavor down to the price… Read More

    Lenovo Outs The ThinkPad Tablet, An Android Tablet You Might Actually Want

    Last week I tuned into a press preview of today’s Lenovo announcement. It was an online presentation so, you know, I went on and did other things while half listening. I was nearly ready to close the tab after listening to 20 minutes of some product manager explaining every little detail about the consumer-oriented IdeaPad K1 Honeycomb tablet. All he really had to say was, “We made… Read More

  • Lenovo And NEC Launch PC Joint Venture In Japan

  • Lenovo Waves Their New Tablet Around At Brazil Event

    We’ve heard many things about Lenovo’s tablet plans, but they’re a bit hard to parse. After all, Lenovo is among the tablet faithful, and their convertible Windows machines have been selling steadily for years.

  • Lenovo Sees 2012 To Be The Year Of USB 3.0

    USB 3.0 devices have been available since late 2009. I tested several first-gen USB 3.0 external hard drives in early 2010 and the spec hit several laptop platforms a bit after that. Still, even though it’s nearly halfway through 2011 now, USB 3.0-equipped computers are rare. One Lenovo product manager expects the spec to hit the big time next year. Read More

  • Lenovo: "No Plans To Introduce A 23-inch Tablet"


    Did the story about Lenovo’s 23-inch tablet sound a little too advantageous? Yeah, it was.

Ray Gorman, executive director of Lenovo communications, said via ZDNet: “As you know, it is usually not Lenovo’s practice to talk… Read More

  • A 23-inch Tablet Coming From Lenovo This Year?

    Lenovo be crazy. Or smart. Either way it seems the firm is hoping to out a 23-inch tablet by the end of 2011. This comes right from William Cai, a Lenovo senior specialist in marketing, during a talk at this year’s Gadget Show Live. I’m going with smart rather than dumb. The man goes on to talk about the obvious challenges with the project with battery life being the biggest issue. Read More
