The market for dedicated tablets based on mobile operating systems such as Android and iOS is in decline, but the same can't be said for 2-in-1 detachable Windows PCs. These hybrid tablet/laptop systems offer an additional level of utility that standalone tablets don't provide, and best of all, they don't force consumers on a budget to choose one form factor over the other. Microsoft envisioned this very scenario playing out when it introduced Windows 8 and later its first Surface tablets. Now we have Windows 10 and newer generation Surface models that are much improved from the original, along... Read more...
On Thursday, Lenovo summoned the tech press to San Francisco where it took the wraps off two new mobile phone platforms that could both be game changers. It unveiled the world’s first Project Tango-enabled phone in the Phab2 Pro, and introduced an all-new type of modular smart phone with the Moto Z. The Moto Z has the ability to be upgraded via things Lenovo calls Moto Mods. We got some hands-on time with all of the new gear after the keynote, which we'll be presenting to you here. Lenovo's event was dubbed Tech World and drew over 400 media attendees from across the globe. Lenovo CEO Yang... Read more...
We were impressed when the LG G5 rolled out with its “Friends Modules”, but Lenovo just upped the game with the new Moto Z family of smartphones. Today, Lenovo announced the Moto Z and Moto Z Force, which are next generation Android flagship smartphones. The Moto Z is the standard model, measures just 5.2mm thick and comes with a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display. Inside, you’ll find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM and either 32GB or 64GB of storage. And just in case you want to expand your storage further, there’s a microSD slot that takes you up to 2TB. A 13MP rear camera features... Read more...
Google has been teasing us with its Project Tango augmented reality (AR) platform for years. We’ve seen breathtaking demos on both smartphone and tablet hardware, but no OEMs have stepped up to the plate to deliver Tango-enabled hardware — until now. Lenovo has come out swinging with its PHAB2 Pro phablet, which packs modern internals and a full-fledged AR experience for users.We should start off by saying that to our knowledge, the PHAB2 Pro will be the first commercially available Lenovo smartphone in the United States. We’ve been drooling over Lenovo’s smartphone products for quite some time,... Read more...
Lenovo's business savvy isn't called into question all that often. The Chinese outfit climbed its way to the top in PC sales and has managed to not only retain pole position, but defy market conditions by continually growing PC sales when sales across the board are down as a whole. However, not every decision Lenovo makes is a good one, such as buying Motorola. Acquiring Motorola from Google was a play into the seemingly fashionable mobile sector. Lenovo already competes in mobile with a line of its own brand handsets, but scooping up Motorola would give it a larger presence, especially in territories... Read more...
Lenovo just disclosed that Moto G4 Plus smartphone will be upgraded in 2017 to Android O. This leak has come ahead of Google’s announcement of Android O, which should be deployed over a year from now. Image from AnzuhoGoogle announced Android N far ahead of schedule. Instead of waiting for this year’s Google I/O conference, Google made the Android N Developer Preview available as an OTA update in early March. The Android N Developer Preview currently supports the Nexus, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Nexus 9, and the Pixel C. Some Android N improvements include multi-window support, direct...

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...
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...
