Lenovo Lephone getting 2H 2010 launch outside China

Lenovo's Lephone was a surprise hit from CES 2010, and just as we hoped at the time it's not just the Chinese market that will get to enjoy it.  As well as confirming that Google's recent spat with the Chinese government (and the delay of a couple of Android devices there, too) won't affect the Lephone's launch, Lenovo have also announced that they will be bringing the Android handset to overseas markets in the second half of 2010.

Lenovo S2 hands-on

Lenovo S2 hands-on

A surprising amount of fabulous devices were shown this past week by Lenovo to the hordes of press looking to snap shots and take video of the latest and the greatest from the manufacturer as they ran Android for mobile and Windows for both mobile and laptop stations - what the Lenovo S2 represents is the Android world. What Lenovo's got here is another chance for you to take advantage of their unique user interface not unlike what we've also just seen on the world's first Android running an Intel Medfield chip, the Racer-A, aka the K800. This device here, the L2, represents a budget smartphone running that same Android user interface.

Lenovo confirms Windows Phone device for second half of 2012

Lenovo confirmed today that it has plans to release a Windows Phone device during the second half of 2012.

Lenovo Android tablet plans paused until Honeycomb

Lenovo has been talking about its Android plans, and contrary to previous reports about a potential LePhone launch outside of China sometime in the second half of 2010, CEO Rory Read has said the company will be focusing on Chinese market share for the next two years.  Meanwhile the company's Android tablet plans are similarly on the slow-burner, with Lenovo holding off from releasing a slate until Android 3.5 Honeycomb - Google's promised tablet-centric version the OS - is available, likely sometime in summer 2011.

Lenovo chairman: Steve Jobs “doesn’t care about China”

Lenovo chairman: Steve Jobs “doesn’t care about China”

Lenovo chairman Liu Chuanzhi has described Steve Jobs as "a big pearl", and said that his company is "lucky that Steve Jobs has such a bad temper and doesn’t care about China. If Apple were to spend the same effort on the Chinese consumer as we do, we would be in trouble."  Apple products have the same halo effect in the Chinese market as elsewhere, but limited official availability has so-far minimized the impact smartphones like the iPhone 4 have had on rival devices.  That limitation has given Lenovo a pass on their limited app selection, Chuanzhi said.

Lenovo Skylight design process arguably more interesting than smartbook itself

Lenovo Skylight design process arguably more interesting than smartbook itself

With the onslaught of gadgets, concept designs and prototypes at CES 2010, it's easy to forget that behind each is a design team slaving away to get things ready in time for the show.  Over at Lenovo's Design Matters blog they're unsurprisingly pretty keen on the Lenovo Skylight; however even if you're not a fan of the smartbook itself you'll probably be interested by the tale of how Richard Sapper - designer of the original ThinkPad - came up with the prototype (including a beautiful olive wood mockup) in just a few weeks time.

Eight Lenovo ThinkPads hit military rugged standards

Lenovo has announced that eight of its ThinkPad notebooks have passed military-standards for ruggedization, making them not only resistant to pressure, humidity, temperature, dust and vibration, but to a greater extent than some "mil-spec" rivals.  The ThinkPad X200, X301, X200s, X200 Tablet, T400, T500, R400 and SL300 all passed durability tests despite not being specifically marketed as ruggedized models.
