IDC smartphone shipment data testify to Xiaomi’s rise

Some would have us believe that the smartphone craze is starting to settle down and that the industry has reached its plateau. That might be true for some markets, especially developed ones, and some vendors. The smartphone shipment figures for the third quarter of 2014 from IDC, however, reveal that there is still lots of room to grow, especially when … Continue reading

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows 13″ model expands lineup

Earlier this month we went hands-on with Lenovo’s new Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows (and Android), which was revealed in both 8-inch and 10-inch iterations. The maker has expanded upon this, introducing another slate into the lineup: the Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows 13-inch model (not to be confused with the Yoga 2 13). As you’d expect, the big change … Continue reading

Lenovo Smartband SW-B100 sneaks into company online shop

We knew that Lenovo was preparing a smartband, as seen in an FCC filing, but just how soon we never realized until now. Although these are basically just placeholders, the continued presence of the Lenovo Smartband SW-B100 on the company’s e-shop suggests that the company is quite ready to formally announce the device or, at the very least, is comfortable … Continue reading

Lenovo tipped to make a bid for BlackBerry this week

Either Lenovo is very serious about stepping up its mobile phone business or it is getting very desperate. Aside from setting up a third mobile business to target China specifically, rumors are resurfacing that Lenovo is eying to buy BlackBerry out of its woes. Or perhaps the two moves are one and the same, which doesn’t make sense either. Whatever … Continue reading

Google Q3 2014 Earnings hit and a miss

This afternoon Google announced their financial Q3 2014 earnings, this just a short while after Apple held their 2014 iPad event. Generally Apple’s events squash every other kind of technology news released during the day, but Google’s earnings – especially ones that turn their stock into a rock – should be strong enough to break on through. What we’re seeing … Continue reading

Lenovo to step up in China by starting a new phone brand

Competition sometimes drives people to go to the extremes or do things that don’t easily make sense. Although Lenovo is now the top dog when it comes to the PC manufacturing business, as far as the specific subset of smartphones and Chinese market is concerned, it is far from wresting the crown from King Xiaomi. That is why, in addition … Continue reading

Lenovo N20P Chromebook Review

Lenovo’s new ThinkPad Yoga 11e Chromebook isn’t the company’s only Chrome OS machine, and latest to the batch is its new N20P Chromebook. Unlike the 11e, the N20P isn’t styled after the company’s famous all-black ThinkPad notebooks, instead sporting a smooth gray body and lid. What we ultimately get is a Chromebook quite a bit thinner than the aforementioned model, … Continue reading

Lenovo Yoga 2 13 Review

Remember Lenovo’s Yoga 2 Pro? The company has rolled out a similar model, the Yoga 2 13, featuring the same multi-mode design and similar specs.

Lenovo TAB A8 Review

Lenovo has added some new tablets to its roster, among them being the 8-inch Lenovo TAB A8. This tablet is a mixture of goodies — it is thin and light, and boasts an astounding battery life (hint: I gave up on waiting for the battery to deplete in standby after day 19). Though the specs are in the range needed … Continue reading

We’ve reviewed several of the company’s devices in recent times, including the T440s, the X240, and the ThinkPad Yoga. While they’re all fine machines, none of them live up to the sheer beauty and svelte thin … Continue reading

Lenovo T440s Review

Among Lenovo’s newest offerings this year is another release in the T-Series lineup, the T440s. With this ultrabook comes all the trimmings you’d expect to see: Windows 8 Pro, a touchscreen display, Intel Haswell under the hood, and the ever-present TrackPoint nestled in the keyboard.
