Lenovo’s purchase of Motorola is now complete – meet Motorola, a Lenovo Company

On the same day that the Motorola built Nexus 6 went on-sale in the US, Motorola and Lenovo have jointly announced that the sale of the company from Google to Lenovo has been completed. The sale of Motorola caught many by surprise when Google announced it back in January, when they had sold Motorola for $2.91 billion. The sale was rumoured to be a bid to quash concerns by Open Handset Alliance manufacturers who saw the relationship between Google and Motorola as a little too close, despite statements that a ‘Firewall’ existed between the two companies. The sale is now[Read More...]

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is an Android tablet with an integrated projector

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is an Android tablet with an integrated projector

Ok Lenovo, you’ve piqued the interest of the internet. Whereas the Samsung Galaxy Beam with a built in pico-projector didn’t quite float everyone’s boat, offering a dull, battery sapping projector on a fairly non-descript phone, the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro could be something special. The Yoga Tablet 2 offers a built-in projector which will offer you two ways to watch a film, either on a 13.3″ QHD (2560×1440) resolution display or switch on the integrated projector to view the 50″ projected image. To complement the 50″ projector the tablet also includes 8W JBL Speakers and an integrated sub-woofer. The tablet[Read More...]

Lenovo Thinkpad 11e — Review

Lenovo Thinkpad 11e — Review

Lenovo is the largest manufacturer of laptops on the planet. Along with Lenovo branded laptops, Lenovo is also responsible for continuing the legacy of the Thinkpad branded notebooks which were built by IBM until they sold the brand to Lenovo back in 2005. And continue the legacy they have, producing high quality and functional laptops for both business, personal and educational markets. While other manufacturers such as Acer, HP, Samsung and Toshiba have released Chromebooks in the Australian market since they launched last March, Lenovo has avoided the Australian market – until now. The release of the Thinkpad 11e and[Read More...]

The Future Of Motorola

The Future Of Motorola

When Lenovo purchased Motorola Mobility from Google earlier this year there was some scepticism about what would happen to Motorola’s line of Android devices. Anyone who has seen a Moto G or a Moto X knows that Motorola have a close to pure stock Android experience. The UI is stock Android in its design but Motorola have added some excellent features to it without ruining the user experience (*cough TouchWiz*). Today Motorola VP of software, Punit Soni, took to a Google Hangout to answer questions from Joe Public regarding Motorola and their vision for the future. Punit stated that Motorola[Read More...]

Rumour: Lenovo could possibly bring their phones to more markets including Australia

Rumour: Lenovo could possibly bring their phones to more markets including Australia

Lenovo first entered the smartphone market back in 2012, but it’s been a fairly limited release with the majority of their phones released in Asia. This strategy has been fairly successful so far with Lenovo currently the largest vendor of smartphones in Mainland China. But they’ve been looking to expand their market to western countries – as evidenced by their purchase of Motorola back in January – and Australia could be one of the markets they try to expand into. Last night Lenovo posted a picture of the Lenovo Vibe X smartphone to a number of their social media channels[Read More...]
