In promoting an upcoming event, Lenovo is quick to point out that “A #betterway is coming”. On October 30th, Lenovo will host an event which they suggest will give us a new direction forward, and perhaps even a few new devices.
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.
Details of the Lenovo IdeaPad A10 convertible notebook surfaced yesterday. Those pieces included a service manual and user manual as well as a product listing on the German Amazon site. But just in case there was any doubt as to whether Lenovo was actually planning to release the yet-to-be-announced Android notebook -- things have since been confirmed.
As HTC comes off their first quarterly loss ever, many wondered if they were prime for a buyout or merger. Though Chairwoman Cher Wang said HTC was moving in the right direction, their continued slide proves troublesome for observers and investors alike.
Lenovo recently announced a few new Android tablets, and it looks like they may soon announce another item in the IdeaPad family of devices. Except this time around, it doesn't appear this will be a standard tablet. The device is the IdeaPad A10 and it appears to be a convertible notebook. Yes, an Android notebook. While we wait for an official announcement, there has been some sightings.
While the company has released Android smartphones, Lenovo hasn't truly been big in the Android tablet scene, with most of it's large-sized devices leaning towards Windows. But now it seems that Lenovo will be dipping its toes further with two new Android tablets from the manufacturer's unique bending Yoga hybrid line.
Lenovo launched the K900 smartphone with Intel Inside and many had assumed the follow-up device would have a similar Intel processor on the inside. That follow-up is the Lenovo Vibe Z, which was also known as the K910. Regardless though, Lenovo quietly unveiled the handset in China recently and it seems they just as quietly detailed the handset with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
Lenovo is definitely not done in its campaign to leave its mark in the worldwide Android smartphone market. For its next stop, the manufacturer will be unleashing a number of low-cost smartphones from its A series in India.
Lenovo isn't a brand you'd immediately associate with Android smartphones, but the company definitely wants to change that perception. It has just recently announced the Vibe Z K910 phablet in China that, as far as specs are concerned, rivals most smartphones of this generation.
Lenovo announced the S5000 tablet and the Vibe X smartphone during IFA. We recently shared some hands-on images with the Vibe X and now we have some for the S5000. The Lenovo S5000 is a 7-inch Android tablet, and given the size, it seems only natural to have it sitting as competition for the Nexus 7. Of course, while we have some specs for the S5000, we have yet to see the other important aspect -- the price.
