The majority of high-end smartphones seem stuck at 3GB, though that's finally beginning to change. Asus kicked things off with its ZenFone 2, the first smartphone to boast 4GB, and Xiamoi followed suit with the Mi Note Pro. Keeping the momentum going, Lenovo is getting ready to release a new handset, the K80, also with 4GB of RAM.What's also interesting about the K80 is that Lenovo didn't go with a Qualcomm Snapdragon System-on-Chip (SoC) or any other ARM-based part, instead opting for a 64-bit Intel Atom processor clocked at 1.8GHz, Chinese-language website China Mobile reports. The number of... Read more...
Remember when tablets were supposed to render the PC market obsolete? Yeah, that may have been a slight overreaction by analysts to an emerging category that grew quickly due to the initial excitement, but now that the dust has settled, we can see just how unfounded those fears were. After all, another 68.5 million PCs were shipped and added to the tally in the first quarter of 2015 alone, with Lenovo leading the way. Sure, that represents 6.7 percent year-over-year decline in shipments, but we're still talking about tens of millions of PCs in a single quarter, 14.2 million of which landed in the... Read more...

The ThinkPad name has a storied history in the notebook sector. Originally developed under the helm of IBM, and passed on to Lenovo roughly a decade ago, ThinkPad notebooks are still considering some of the best in the business. Lenovo’s latest 2015 edition of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is no exception; the 13-inch class notebook is a strong performer and boasts excellent battery life thanks to its new Intel Broadwell processor architecture. With a base price of $1,299, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon carries with it a bit of a premium compared to other machines in its class, but it was still enough to earn... Read more...
When the Android Wear platform was unveiled last year, the star of the show was undoubtedly the Motorola Moto 360. With its stainless steel body and round display, the smartwatch looked futuristic while retaining styling that was somewhat familiar to traditional timepieces. However, it’s been a year since the original Moto 360 was unveiled and there have been a number of round-faced Android Wear devices that have either hit the market or will in the coming months. LG has both the G Watch R and the Watch Urbane, while Huawei came completely out of left field with its “Watch.” Motorola, of course,... Read more...
Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been through a few revisions now and it's easy to see why the product sells so well and why Lenovo continues to invest in the model lineage.  The ThinkPad X1 Carbon combines the sleek profile of a mainstream ultrabook with the durability and utility of Lenovo's classic ThinkPad line of business-class notebooks. With arguably some of the best notebook keyboard and trackpad setups in the market, the ThinkPad line is built for road warriors and demanding professionals first, but the X1 Carbon straddles the line with light-weight composite carbon fiber construction...

Earlier this year, we took a look at Lenovo’s innovative YOGA Tablet 2 Pro that features a built-in projector. If that tablet caught your eye, but its size was just too big for your tastes or it's price was too high for your budget, the Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 may be a better option. This smaller tablet features a 10.1-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1920x1200 and a price tag under $250. As you might expect, there are quite a few similarities between the YOGA Tablet 2 Pro and the YOGA Tablet 2. A quick look at the specifications of both models reveals the same 4th generation Intel Atom processor... Read more...
Lenovo on Tuesday announced a new generation of ThinkVision T Series monitors that feature the latest green certificates and a more refined design than what you might be used. Part of that entails new thinner profiles and an ergonomic stand that supports lift, tilt, and pivot adjustments, along with the ability to swivel into portrait mode, an oft-overlooked feature even among professional panels. While on the topic of physical design, the refreshed monitors sport an equal bezel width on all sides, as Lenovo wanted to ensure a seamless flow for those who choose to configure a multi-monitor setup...

You expect the usual names like HTC and Samsung to make a splash at Mobile World Congress, but Lenovo? Part of the company's stated strategy going forward is to become a leader in smartphones and tablets. Following yesterday's unveiling of three affordable slates, Lenovo today is introducing a pair of new smartphones and a tiny projector.The first is the VIBE Shot, Lenovo's first smartphone crossover device, or 2-in-1 camera phone, if you prefer to call it that.

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for Lenovo. The company found itself embroiled in a nasty scandal involving Superfish adware that it installed on consumer notebook and desktop systems. Not only did Superfish hijack encrypted web sessions, but it also left its customers susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks. Lenovo offered an apology, issued step-by-step instructions on how to remove Superfish manually, and even released an automated tool to rid systems of the sneaky adware/malware. But the damage was already done; not only did Lenovo’s reputation for making excellent computer systems (especially... Read more...
Lenovo said it's currently investigating a cyberattack that took the company's website down for several hours earlier this week, though it may not have to look very far. The ornery hacking group known as Lizard Squad is claiming responsibility for the security breach, purportedly as punishment for the recent Superfish scandal. Let's backtrack a quick moment. Lenovo came under fire earlier this month when it was discovered that a piece of bundled software on consumer laptops and desktops was duping security certificates in order to display ads. Called Superfish, the software is a visual search program... Read more...
As we discovered late last week, Lenovo has been serving up some tainted Superfish via its consumer PCs. Once Lenovo was called out for its heinous actions, the company offered an apology and vowed to remove Superfish from shipping systems (it provided removal instructions and later an automatic removal tool for machines already affected by Superfish). However, the apology apparently wasn’t enough as Lenovo is already facing a lawsuit stemming from Superfish. Now it looks a though hacker group Lizard Squad is retaliating in its own, childish way. At around... Read more...
Lenovo had a rough go of it over the past few weeks. First, news broke that Lenovo had installed Superfish (widely regarded as adware) on some of its notebooks. As public outcry mounted, Lenovo offered a public apology and provided customers with instructions for removing Superfish. But all the negative publicity isn’t Lenovo’s only headache now: someone claiming to be a customer affected by the software has filed a lawsuit against Lenovo in California. And, they’re aiming for class-action status.  The plaintiff in the case is Jessica Bennett, who suspected that her... Read more...
