CES 2018 Blackout: 10 Tweets tell the tale

CES 2018 Blackout: 10 Tweets tell the tale

CES 2018 had a blackout on Wednesday, January 10th, resulting in near total darkness in both North and Central halls at the LVCC. The irony of this situation was not lost on participants in the "world's gathering place [for] consumer technologies," and suddenly social networking made sense again. Shared photos, videos, and information bits were made public instantly, and through our compatriots we're able to quite easily tell the whole story to you, right this minute. Reactions to the situation are included here, where I write this article safely at home, hundreds of miles away from the action.

Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Graphics Dock runs Windows Mixed Reality

Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Graphics Dock runs Windows Mixed Reality

Laptops are getting thinner and thinner, not to mention sometimes converting into tablets. But the price of portability is performance, at the very least graphics performance. There are, of course, a new breed of computing accessories that deliver added graphics processing power via Thunderbolt 3 but those are heavy in both price and form. Enter the Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Graphics Dock somewhat quietly revealed at CES 2013. No larger than a laptop, this graphics card enclosure claims it’s powerful enough to even run Windows Mixed Reality at 90 Hz rates. But, of course, there’s always a catch.

Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream hands-on: VR and the camera to shoot it

Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream hands-on: VR and the camera to shoot it

Right now there are two main types of virtual reality headsets, ones that are tethered to PCs and ones that need a smartphone to work. Either way, such headsets are beholden to another device running the show, which also prevents users from accessing said devices normally. Standalone VR headsets have long been a dream but, as far as Google’s Daydream platform is concerned, that almost failed to take shape. Lenovo has, fortunately, come to the rescue with the new Mirage Solo with Daydream standalone headset that promises freedom in more ways than one.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 line gets CES 2018 update plus 4K Thunderbolt 3 display

Lenovo's ThinkPad line-up is getting a refresh for CES 2018, with updated X1 Tablet, X1 Carbon notebook, and X1 Yoga models, together with a brand new 27-inch Thunderbolt 3 display. While they may be ostensibly targeting businesses and mobile pros, the combination of speedy 8th Gen Intel processors and features like Amazon Alexa mean there's likely to be plenty of interest among consumers, too. As for that ThinkVision X1 display, it might be the Thunderbolt 3 display-hub you've been waiting for.

Lenovo Smart Display gives Google Assistant a touchscreen and camera

The Google Assistant is getting its touchscreen and camera, with the new Lenovo Smart Display taking on Amazon's Echo Show at CES 2018. Taking the same Assistant we know from the Google Home smart speaker, Lenovo's new Smart Displays give it an 8-inch or 10-inch housing for video calling and more.

Lenovo Miix 630 Windows 10 on ARM 2-in-1 debuts at CES 2018

Lenovo Miix 630 Windows 10 on ARM 2-in-1 debuts at CES 2018

Lenovo has revealed its first Windows-on-ARM ultraportable, the Lenovo Miix 630, running Windows 10 S on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835. One of a small handful of machines that eschew x86 processors from Intel or AMD in favor of the sort of low-power silicon that you'd more typically expect to find inside a smartphone, Lenovo's newest 2-in-1 uses that power frugality to good advantage.

Lenovo Mirage Solo is the last standalone Daydream headset standing

Lenovo Mirage Solo is the last standalone Daydream headset standing

There were supposed to be two, but it seems there can only be one, at least for now. HTC has backed out of making Google’s daydream of a standalone Daydream VR headset but Lenovo has not. In fact, that device has just made its way to the FCC, making it more than just a plan. Being an FCC entry, there isn’t much to be gleaned from the docs, but at least we now have a name: the Lenovo Mirage Solo. Hopefully, this sighting won’t just be a mirage as well.

Lenovo V730 leak: a business laptop that isn’t a ThinkPad

Lenovo V730 leak: a business laptop that isn’t a ThinkPad

Ever since it acquired IBM’s PC business, the ThinkPad has become Lenovo’s standard bearer for its business-class laptops. While it does have its own laptops, including the Yoga and the new V series, those have been relegated to other purposes and features, like gaming, affordability, or flexibility. It seems, however, that the world’s biggest PC vendor is going to mix things up a bit with a new Lenovo V730 that will have all the specs for a business laptop but without the Thinkpad branding.

Moto Tab marks a return to a stagnating market

Moto Tab marks a return to a stagnating market

Quick, when was the last time you heard of a Motorola tablet? If you've been around the industry long enough, you might vaguely remember the Motorola XOOM 2, which launched way back in 2011. A lot has happened to the company since then, including changing owners twice. Now that it's under new management, it seems that ol' Moto is adopting Lenovo's business model of introducing a dozen and one devices per year. That seems to now apply even to tables, with Motorola's first new tablet in 6 years, the plainly named Moto Tab.
