Motorola's been a bit quiet in the high-end smartphone market, though it looks as if the Lenovo-owned company is getting ready to make a splash with its fourth generation Moto X. Some leaked renders of the forthcoming Moto X4 suggest and all-metal construction with a curvy top and bottom, along with something interesting on the its backside. Towards the bottom of the rear are two rows of dots. They almost look like speaker holes, except the series of gold contacts suggests they'll be used to connect to a smart dock, possibly one that can charge the handset and/or offer additional functionality....

At a time when laptop makers are shunning big and bulky notebooks in favor of thin and light designs, Lenovo went a different direction with its ThinkPad P70, a mobile workstation brimming with high-end hardware for tackling rough and tumble tasks in the field. It's all about finding the right tool for the job, and just as a lumberjack wouldn't trade his gas-powered chainsaw for a Swiss Army knife just because he could fit in his pocket, there are certain computing tasks that require desktop-class performance. That's what the ThinkPad P70 aims to deliver. The ThinkPad P70 is one of the first mobile... Read more...
While it's not uncommon for consumers to want to upgrade their smartphones each and every year, the market is learning more and more that tablets don't enjoy the same kind of uptake. IDC's latest report highlights this well, as it shows a 14.7% year-over-year decline in tablet shipments. That puts the total at 39.6 million shipped, and includes both standard "slate" and detachable form-factors. With these results, it's clear that there is not as much demand for tablets as there once was, but things could change in the future as more and more users are ditching their desktops to become more mobile....

Rick Osterloh is returning home, so to speak, to Google to head the company’s newly hatched hardware division. Osterloh originally arrived at Google by way of the search giant’s purchase of Motorola in 2011. While under the Google umbrella, Osterloh was promoted to CEO of Motorola, but was unceremoniously booted from Mountain View when Motorola was sold to Lenovo in 2014. Osterloh left Motorola last month and is now back into the newly open arms of Google, which wants to get its house in order when it comes to hardware. Google is especially eager to get the ball rolling after losing Regina Duncan,... Read more...
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga marks a marriage between two of Lenovo's premium notebook lines: the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the ThinkPad Yoga. The X1 Carbon line was introduced in 2012, bringing a largely carbon-fiber filled construction to decrease weight and increase durability compared to their previous X1 ultrabooks, while still maintaining the classic ThinkPad design established way back by IBM. The ThinkPad Yoga line, introduced a year later in 2013, consists of smaller 11 and 13 inch 2-in-1 form factors with a reinforced hinge capable of folding beyond 180 degrees into tent, stand or even tablet modes....

Motorola's getting ready to release a new generation of its stylish and relatively low cost G series smartphones. Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing hinted as much when introducing its own Zuk Z2 Pro in Beijing earlier this week, adding that Lenovo's Motorola division is prepping a new and "exciting" device for a June 9 debut. Mr. Yuanqing stopped himself from providing any other concrete details, such as specs, price, or even a name. However, recent rumors and leaks suggest the company is working on two handsets, the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus. That seems to be the trend these days, with Apple offering two... Read more...
With the release of Windows 8, Microsoft effectively encouraged its hardware partners to think beyond the confines of traditional PC design, giving them the nudge they needed to introduce bold new products. Lenovo embraced the challenge, and in 2012 it brought its first Yoga system to market, a multi-mode laptop that could fold back onto itself like a carnival contortionist. The design proved popular, so over the past few years Lenovo has added new laptops to its Yoga line. One of the newest is the Yoga 700, a 14-inch convertible that takes advantage of the latest technologies, pairing Intel's... Read more...

Ashton Kutcher has been a product ambassador for Lenovo for just over two years now; or as his official title says, Product Engineer. In the past, Kutcher has been extremely hyped about helping to develop the Yoga family of Android-powered tablets, and now his area of expertise is expanding to smartphones. More specifically, we should mention that Kutcher is extolling the benefits of Motorola’s latest range of smartphones.  According to Kutcher, he will be spending much of 2016 in the Moto labs, listening to customer feedback in an effort to help develop future generations of Moto smartphones....

Lenovo is displaying the kind of business savvy that must have competitors going nuts with envy. To wit, Lenovo became the world's top supplier of PCs a long time ago and has managed to maintain its No. 1 ranking by outpacing market trends, and now it's showing it can be successful in the mobile market as well. More on that in a moment. For its third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2015, Lenovo reported $12.9 billion in revenue. That's actually down 8 percent year-over-year (or 2 percent year-over-year in constant currency), but good for a $300 million profit, up 19 percent compared to the same... Read more...

We covered a lot of miles at CES 2016 this year, our fitness trackers often chirping "success" rather early in the day, but we saw a lot of people and a lot of tech gear in our travels. Some of it was hot - damn hot - some of it, not so much. There were some recurring themes this year, as with every year at CES it seems. The hot topics and trends this year were autonomous cars, virtual reality, more thin and light computing and of course more powerful gaming gear. Every Tech Web publication has its own short list of the best products showcased at CES 2016. We're going to run down our top 10 products... Read more...
