Lenovo’s A-Series of tablets is made up of three models. First you have the 7-inch A7 which is made for reading and browsing, the 8-inch A8 billed as an entertainment tablets and the 10-inch A10 which can be used for both entertainment and productivity. All three tablets feature the same Mediatek 1.3 GHz quad-core SoC, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and run Android 4.4.2. Today we will be checking out the Tab A8 which sits right in the middle of the A-Series with an MSRP of $149.99. Let’s take this tablet for a spin and see what it really can do!
Wearables seem to be like the next hot thing with everyone coming out with these devices. It looks like Lenovo is the next big company to jump one this craze. They have quietly put up a product page for the Smartband SW-B100. The device is said to be able to track fitness, sleep and heart-rate, but it also has another big feature that is not on competing devices.
Lenovo today announced the new YOGA 3 Pro, an ultra slim convertible PC. The new 13-in YOGA 3 Pro uniquely address users’ desires for an extremely stylish device, best-in-breed performance capabilities and the hardware and software adaptability they crave.
Lenovo has always done a pretty good job at taking criticism and improving products with new revisions. The Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ hopes to be one of those products. This second generation version of the tablet features a higher resolution (1920 x 1200) screen, more powerful Snapdragon 400 APQ8028 quad-core SoC, and improved 8-megapixel camera. The tablet also offers a very unique cylinder-type design on its bottom edge. This doubles as a flip stand and allows the tablet to have a larger 9000mAh battery for up to 18 hours of usage according to Lenovo. Will this be your next tablet? Let’s take a look…
The 8-inch tablet market is literally overflowing with choices. What makes 8-inch or similar tablets great is that they are small enough that you really do not feel like you are carrying around say a laptop or Ultrabook. While Lenovo does offer 8-inch tablets, this is a ThinkPad tablet, which means it is targeted at business users. Being a business user on the go you want something powerful enough and that can do everything that your PC or laptop can do. I would much rather carry around an 8-inch tablet than an Ultrabook. Running a full version of Windows 8.1 and with its 1920 x 1200 display the ThinkPad 8 might give you a reason to ditch your PC. Read on as we take a look…
The original Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga made headlines with its unique hinge lid design that allowed the lid to be flipped completely over turning the laptop into a tablet. On top of that the design made for some other useful modes as well. Lenovo is back with the brand new Yoga 2 Pro, which is one of the best Ultrabooks that I have seen to date. Lenovo has kept the same lid design, but has made the unit thinner and lighter. On top of that the hardware inside has been upgraded and Lenovo has added a QHD+ display giving users 3200 x 1800 is screen real estate to work with. Is this the Ultrabook to have this year? Read on as we find out…
There are quite a few different home cloud storage and NAS options out there, but lets admit they are ugly and look more like a real server than anything else. Lenovo introduces Beacon, their take on home cloud storage. I have to say the Beacon is just sexy!
While the big story of CES was Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon they also took the time to announce their Miix 2 Hybrid Laptop / Tablet. The Miix 2 is the ideal solution for someone who frequently uses both a laptop and a tablet.
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been Lenovo’s best Ultrabook for business and to start off 2014 they have fixed some of the minor issues with the original version and added a few things as well. One of the additions is the adaptive keyboard, which is one of the coolest things that I have seen so far at CES.
