Lenovo kicked off the year yesterday with a full range of exciting products at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The new product range solidifies Lenovo’s dedication to innovation through the lens of every individual as today’s consumers expect their devices to be tailor-made.
“Our approach to innovation is to ensure we’re constantly evolving and understanding how technology is infused within every individual, business and home,” said Gianfranco Lanci, president and chief operating officer, Lenovo.
“We’re dedicated to understanding our customers and will never stop creating better experiences, whether PCs for work, play or gaming, next generation AR/VR innovation or within the smarter home.”
Unlocking AR and VR experiences with Phab 2 pro Apps
The world’s first Tango enabled smartphone, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, is now available online and on shelves, unlocking unique mobile AR experiences for smartphone users all over the world. Users can now, among other things, decorate and map their own interiors, film themselves with holograms or transform their home into a virtual playground.
Lenovo is dedicated in the Android and Chrome space, with the successful launch of the Lenovo Yoga Book and Lenovo Phab 2 Pro in 2016. Lenovo will continue focusing on products such as the Yoga Book; Chromebooks; and on the Tango technology with AR/VR devices.
A premium PC experience with the ThinkPad X1 family
The next generation of ThinkPad X1 products are committed to uncompromised innovation and embracing the needs of the evolving consumer, who now blurs the line between work and personal PC use. Customer feedback, insight and experience has pushed Lenovo to truly understand what matters most to users and match those wants with its products.
The 2017 ThinkPad X1 Carbon, available in classic ThinkPad Black and a new silver colour, is the lightest 14-inch business notebook, weighing just 2.5 pounds, packs a 14-inch IPS display into a new sleek 13-inch form factor. It also offers up to 15 hours of battery life for extended time away.
Work-life integration with the Miix 720
The ultra-chic Miix 720 Windows detachable includes the features needed to work smarter, combining an ultra-crisp 12-inch QHD+ display and precision touchpad-enabled keyboard with up to 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and Thunderbolt 3, the fastest port available on a PC today.
When it’s time to hit the road – or your next meeting – you can simply remove the keyboard to instantly transform the Miix 720 into a feature-rich touchscreen tablet. Paired with a multifaceted Lenovo Active Pen 2, the Miix 720 is ideal for effortless note taking or bringing creative concepts to life.
Making smart technologies accessible
Bringing great smart home experience to more households and making the technologies more accessible is one of our big goals in the connected world. After conducting a series of studies on consumers’ pain points and needs, Lenovo designed the Lenovo Smart Assistant, a new mainstream digital personal assistant, with Amazon Alexa cloud-based voice services.
Built in collaboration with Amazon, the elegantly designed Lenovo Smart Assistant recognizes users’ voice commands to conduct web searches, play music, create lists, calendar reminders and much more. And because Alexa’s brains are in the cloud, it means she’s always getting smarter. The Lenovo Smart Assistant is also designed to run Lenovo smart home devices, as well as scores of existing third-party products to expand user options.
Lenovo Smart Storage, rounding out our mainstream smart home offerings, is a secure digital storage solution with massive – 6TB – capacity, dual-band wireless access and multi-device auto-sync capabilities.
Taking control with the Lenovo 500 Multimedia Controller
With the explosive growth of internet-enabled smart TV, we built Lenovo 500 Multimedia Controller, a state-of-the-art wireless keyboard and mouse that fits in the palm of your hand and dramatically improves not just the way homeowners connect to their PCs, the web and displays, but re-defines the very notion of how a compact, Human Interface Device (HID) should look, feel and function.
The keyboard area doubles as a Windows 10 gesture-supported, multi-touch capacitive touchpad – meaning that users can type like a normal keypad with their thumbs or glide their fingers across the surface like a touchpad.
