We got a first look at the Lenovo A10 Android notebook when some manuals and product listings appeared online earlier in the month. Given the details from the leak, there wasn’t much room left for doubt, however Lenovo did follow-up with a quick confirmation. The key, that confirmation was a simple comment. As of today however, the Lenovo A10 has been officially announced.
Lenovo is touting the A10 as being “an ideal companion for users on the go.” They are pushing this Android powered notebook as having a laptop-mode and stand-mode. With laptop-mode users will be able to sit back with a notebook like experience. The A10 has a full-size AccuType keyboard along with an app launcher, task bar, status bar, file manager software and more.
The Lenovo A10 will be running Android, however there was mention of it being a “Lenovo customized OS.” For this, it was said those customizations will allow the user to easily locate and manage everything from documents to videos and music. Flipping over to stand-mode and we have what Lenovo is pushing for fun and entertainment. The A10 has a 10.1-inch (1366 x 768) display with 10-point multi-touch, stereo speakers and a 0.3 megapixel webcam.
Other features of the Lenovo A10 include a quad-core Rockchip RK3188 processor, 2GB of RAM, up to 32GB of storage and a battery that is said to be able to provide up to “nine hours of continuous video playback.” That all being said, while Lenovo did offer this announcement with an official press release — they have kept the pricing and release date a mystery for now. To that point, Lenovo has said that “pricing and availability varies per region.”
