Bringing computers into a new PC+ era, Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY), the world’s number one PC maker, showcased today the company’s latest range of multimode devices for enterprise and consumers including the Horizon Table PC, Flex laptops, Flex and ThinkCenter All-in-One (AIO) desktops, Twist, ThinkPad Tablet 2, ThinkPad Helix and ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch, Yoga convertibles and Android-based tablets and smartphones.
The innovative machines will cater to businesses and consumers alike and aim to enhance the way customers interact with technology by providing more intuitive devices that cater to daily needs and that feature multi-touch screen functionality with the familiarity of a traditional keyboard.
“Touch is the natural evolution of PCs into the PC+ era,” said Mohammed Hilili, General Manager, Lenovo Gulf. “Lenovo prides itself on being one of the most innovative companies in the world, and recent product launches have been a testament to the success of our philosophy. Our transition to a PC+ company has shown great success and strong momentum, allowing us to reach the position of number one PC maker in the world. The launch of our next generation touch devices marks a new era in computing, introducing faster and more powerful devices for businesses and consumers alike.”
“We have made a conscious effort in creating devices that bring multimode computing to mainstream laptops and desktops, as well as devices that are built specifically for business-heavy applications and requirements. This is a range of products that caters to everyone.”
Newly Launched Products
The new lineup starts with a brand new Lenovo Flex 14 and 15-inch laptops which creatively flip 300° for stand mode, a new way to interact with a PC and positions the device closer to the user for more natural, comfortable touch experience. Beyond Flex’s extra value with its dual mode, flip functionality, its fashionable soft-touch black cover trimmed with silver or Clementine Orange also attracts attention. Equally stunning, the interior contains a clean keyboard design with optional backlighting. Images are vividly rich thanks to Flex’s HD or optional Full HD displays. With 10-point multitouch, Flex makes using Windows 8 and collaboration easy. With up to nine hours, Flex 14 and 15 are extremely mobile and are primed for productivity.
The Flex 14 and 15-inch laptops will make their debut at Gitex Shopper 2013.
In addition, the new Flex 20 all-in-one (AIO) desktop has the ability to convert from stand to table mode. When flat in table mode, the Aura interface opens for a multi-game, multi-player experience like no other. In this mode, users can challenge others to play preloaded and purchasable games from the Lenovo App Store powered by Intel App Up. The Aura interface functions as a highly collaborative tool for multi-media content enhanced with its Dolby Home Theatre v4 audio. Unlike most AIO’s, Flex 20 has mobility in mind with built-in WiFi for easy moving around the home or office, and users can pick up and go for up to three hours without charging.
Lenovo also showcased its latest range of Android-based tablets and smartphones in the UAE market.
The range starts with two new A-series tablets, 7” devices, designed for optimal mobility while still packing a performance punch. The A1000 is ideal for first-time tablet buyers and features enhanced audio, while the A3000 offers quad-core processing for speedy performance whether for gaming or web-browsing. Alongside these models, Lenovo also introduced the new 10” S6000, which offers extended I/O options, a large, vibrant screen and a super-slim profile that ensures you will be the envy of the coffee shop while you enjoy movies and games.
On the Smartphone front, Lenovo showcased the recently launched 6 Smartphone models, including the K900 for tech-savvy power users; the P780 for the professional who demands long-lasting battery, USB on-the-go and business applications; the stylish S920 and S820 for heavy multimedia users; and the affordable yet fully loaded A706 and A390.
