CES hasn’t even arrived yet, but Lenovo has already unleashed a truckload of new computing products to satisfy business users (and regular consumers that prefer higher-end machines). The company has announced a total of eight new ThinkPad models and two new ThinkVision displays along with two ThinkPad Docks.ThinkPad Yoga 370 So, let’s get right to it, shall we?

Motorola righted many of the wrong of the first-generation Moto 360 with the second-generation model, which was launched in late 2015. However, some still weren’t happy with the $349 staring price tag for the non-Sport model. Then there was still the fact that the “flat tire” display remained even after the first-generation model was heavily criticized for the design choice (read the HotHardware review here). Well, if the price was the only thing holding you back from purchasing a Moto 360, Verizon hopes to erase that doubt. The nation’s largest wireless carrier is discounting the smartwatch from...

Lenovo introduced the Google Project Tango Augmented Reality-infused Phab 2 Pro smartphone back in June and the product marked a number firsts for both the manufacturer and the industry as a whole. The Phab 2 Pro is the first consumer retail device to support Google Project Tango AR technology, with a multi-camera and sensor array that gives the smartphone the ability to sense and "see" the environment around it, and then map and render virtual augmentations in the environment for the user. The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is also one of the largest Android smartphones on the market currently, with a ginormous... Read more...
Lenovo is making a pretty big push for Moto Z Mods, those snap-on accessories that extend or otherwise improve the functionality of the Moto Z handset. And why not? As one of the company's television commercials points out, the smartphone form factor has remained relatively the same for about the past decade without too much innovation to get excited about. The question is, are Mods the answer?Motorola's newest daddy seems to think so. Lenovo, which acquired Motorola from Google for $2.91 billion in early 2014, indicated a bit of buyer's remorse earlier this year when it said that it's "integration... Read more...
Motorola’s original Moto 360 was the headlining hardware for the launch of Android Wear 1.0 in the summer of 2014. The smartwatch garnered praise for its sleek, circular design, but was widely panned for sluggish performance and poor battery life. Motorola improved on the original with a second-generation Moto 360 and Moto 360 Sport in 2015, but it may be a while before we see a third generation of Android Wear smartwatches from Lenovo Moto. Google’s Android Wear 2.0 platform is scheduled to debut during the first half of 2017, but Lenovo Moto will sit this one out says Shakil Barkat, Moto’s head... Read more...
Lenovo is already a juggernaut in the PC business, as it has sat atop the global leaderboard for the past few years. However, its share of the PC market could get a little bit bigger if reports coming out of South Korea are indeed accurate. According to The Korea Herald, in an effort to divest itself of underperforming and unprofitable business units, Samsung is looking to sell its PC business. Lenovo is reportedly in talks to acquire the unit in a deal that could be worth $850 million. This move comes just months after Samsung sold its printer unit to HP Inc. for just over $1 billion. “Considering... Read more...
Lenovo recently released one of the most interesting tablet hybrids in recent memory, just in time for the holidays. The Yoga Book has a digital keyboard that doubles as a sketch pad that even accommodates plain old paper, giving users several ways to draw images or jot notes. In fact, the tablet aspect of the machine is one of the most creative (and fun) concepts we’ve seen this year. The Yoga Book differs from traditional tablet first hybrid devices in several ways, but the most noticeable of these is the permanently attached keyboard, which is a departure from traditional 10-inch tablet...

If you have one of Lenovo/Motorola’s Moto Z or Moto Z Force flagships in your possession, you’ll be happy to know that the Android 7.0 Nougat update will soon be on its way to your smartphone. Motorola announced that the over-the-air update will commence this week for customers. Besides bringing all of the OS improvements and features that you'd expect with Nougat, Motorola also announced that both the Moto Z and Moto Z Force are Daydream-ready. There are very few Daydream-ready smartphones on the market today, with the most high-profile offerings being Google's Pixel and Pixel XL. "Daydream offers... Read more...
Hello again Moto, and goodbye Lenovo. No, Lenovo isn't closing up shop—that would be a silly move for the largest supplier of PCs in the world—but it does plan to stop marketing smartphones under its own brand name. All future smartphones from Lenovo will be labeled as Moto phones. Lenovo will also put new leadership in place at its smartphone division.The Chinese electronics maker purchased Motorola from Google for $2.91 billion in 2014. It may have seemed like a deal at the time to Lenovo, as Google had paid upwards of $12 billion for Lenovo just a couple of years prior in a transaction that... Read more...
LG dipped its toes into the modular smartphone arena with the G5 flagship, but it was arguably Lenovo/Motorola that made the concept easy to use and incorporated useful integration into the Android operating system with Moto Mods. The Moto Z, Moto Z Force and Moto Z Play support the hot-swappable Moto Mods, which snap onto the back of the smartphone with the help of magnets. Official Moto Mods available for the Moto Z family include include the Insta-Share Mod pico projector, Incipio Power Pack Mod, JBL SoundBoost Mod and the Hasselblad 4116 True Zoom Mod. But what about people who want to create... Read more...
  Lenovo/Motorola continues to flesh out its Moto smartphone lineup, and we’ve been impressed with what we’ve seen so far in recent months (Moto Z/Moto Z Force, Moto Z Play). A new member of the Moto smartphone family will soon be making its way to the public according to new leaks, and it should be a boon for customers that value battery life. The Moto M is reportedly powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz. The smartphone is said to include 3GB or 4GB of RAM (depending on the variant), 32GB internal storage, a microSD slot for expansion (up to 128GB), a 5.5-inch... Read more...
Moto introduced the Moto Z family back in July with the launch of the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. Packed with flagship worthy hardware like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, both phones made a serious statement (click for full review) thanks to their modular capabilities, by way of Moto Mods. Moto Mods tune the already premium smartphones to a whole new level when attached. We were impressed by the Moto Mods we played with, including JBL's SoundBoost and the Moto Insta-Share Projector. Unfortunately, these phones were tied to Verizon at the time of our review, but unlocked variants are now trickling... Read more...
This past June, Lenovo invited select press to an event in San Francisco where the company unveiled two upcoming products: Phab2 Pro, and Moto Z. We took a look at the (seriously awesome) Moto Z a couple of months ago, and now, we have the Phab2 Pro to look forward to next month. We'd understand it if you felt a little bored of mobile releases lately, because there's just so many of them, and it's sometimes hard to figure out the true differences between one model and another. But Phab2 Pro is worth your attention, as it will become the first commercially-available phone built on Google's Tango... Read more...
