NEC dumps smartphone business (but will keep making tablets)

NEC has pulled out of the smartphone business, conceding that it has been left behind in the highly-competitive segment, and announcing an immediate cessation of development, manufacturing, and sales of the devices. The Japanese company will continue to make dumbphones, however, along with tablets, but "handset shipments are following a downward trend and it is difficult to foresee improved performance in the future" in its smartphone business, NEC concedes.

LenovoEMC PX2-300d with Milestone Arcus NVR Review

LenovoEMC PX2-300d with Milestone Arcus NVR Review

With the latest deliverable in NAS technology we've got the LenovoEMC PX2-300d with Milestone Arcus Network Video Recorder software embedded, complete with hardware you might recognize as a rather close relative of the Iomega PX2-300d in both looks and function - to a point. This is because both PX2-300d units are essentially made of the same basics on the outside, working now with the company's upgraded brand name (LenovoEMC) and taking on the mantel of big-power small-footprint NAS for SMB. Here we've also got the very first NVR (network video recorder) to feature Milestone Arcus; video management software that makes the whole process as quick and easy as possible.

Lenovo Yoga 11 Windows RT seemingly axed as official store stops sales

Lenovo has apparently discontinued its only Windows RT notebook, the IdeaPad Yoga 11 convertible, quietly ceasing sales through its own online store. The Yoga 11, which ran the pared-back Windows RT on NVIDIA's Tegra 3 chipset, has seemingly been superseded by the newer Yoga 11S, which swaps out the ARM chipset and replaces it with an Intel Core i3 processor and a full copy of Windows 8.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S Review

Being touted as a "mini ultrabook" the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S is the latest and greatest to grace the IdeaPad lineup with full-fledged Windows 8 on board. Everything about the Yoga 11 from last year is still present, only we've received a huge upgrade to an Intel Core 15 processor (no ARM Tegra 3 here) and dropped Win RT for the full experience. The device is still as portable and impressive as ever, so read on for the rest of our thoughts.

Lenovo ThinkCentre M93p desktop keeps it “Tiny”

Lenovo ThinkCentre M93p desktop keeps it “Tiny”

If you've seen some of Lenovo's previous efforts in the miniature desktop machine environment, you'll know that they're aiming to be the best immediately, if not soon. Though they've not got the marketing hype of the newest Mac Pro, they're certainly part of the same modern environment - they've got a rather similar aim, that is - packing as much power and high-end features into one super-small form factor as they possibly can - that's what's coming in the ThinkCentre M93p.

Lenovo A1000 hits shelves with Nexus 7 price-chopping

It would appear that the folks at Lenovo have decided to launch several new tablets - announced at Mobile World Congress though they were - to the market without much warning. You'll find the Lenovo A1000 leading this pack with a cool $149.99 USD pricetag, clearly aimed at taking a piece of the pie still being devoured in a large way by Google's ASUS-made Nexus 7 tablet. It's got the specifications to - almost - back it up side-by-side as well.

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix Review

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix Review

Lenovo has big plans with Windows 8, convertible laptops and Ultrabooks, and more but one that caught our eye at CES was the ThinkPad Helix.

After a few delays the ThinkPad Helix is finally available today, so we're taking it for a full spin in its retail form. Is the nearly $1,700 base price tag worth it?
