Lenovo Announces Range of Touch-Enabled PCs!


 

Lenovo announced the availability of a new range of touch-enabled PCs which come in a variety of form factors. These include the award-winning IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC, a evolutionary interpersonal computing device, the IdeaPad Yoga 11s, the first multimode mini Ultrabook™ equipped with powerful Intel processors and featuring Windows 8, the ThinkPad Helix, a premium convertible for business professionals featuring a “rip and flip” design and the ThinkPad Edge E431, designed for small businesses who want to leverage on Windows 8’s touch optimization.

We are excited about Lenovo’s latest range of touch-enabled devices that will create and define a new computing experience for our end users,” said Jessie Quek, Country General Manager, Lenovo Singapore.

The advancements in touch optimization and processing power will enable these new form factors to take off and gain rapid adoption. With these tools, Lenovo can empower the Doers of today to work and play with digital content like never before.”

IdeaCentre Horizon Creates an Interpersonal Computing Experience

 

The IdeaCentre Horizon is designed to create a new way of thinking about computing – one that makes the experience shared, collaborative and personal. With a supersized 27-inch screen, dynamic graphics and 10-finger touch, the Horizon allows up to four people to use it simultaneously for both work and play.

 


When placed parallel to the ground, users can activate the Horizon’s Aura interface and begin interacting with people and content ranging from photos and videos to apps and games. The Horizon comes preloaded with a library of games created by Lenovo. Complementing these games is a special set of onthe-glass accessories including an e-dice and four joysticks and four strikers. The Horizon also doubles up as a high performance, all-in-one 27-inch desktop. With up to Intel® Core i7™ processors, NVIDIA GeForce graphics and Dolby Home Theatre® v4 audio, Horizon displays content beautifully and supports fast and smooth multimedia playback. All these features make it the ultimate home entertainment center, and a great device for collaborative work in the office.
IdeaPad Yoga 11s – Small Yet Powerful Ultrabook

 

Hot on the heels of the first two Yoga-branded convertibles launched last year is the new IdeaPad Yoga 11s, which comes equipped with a new low power lineup from Intel with up to 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i5 processors and Windows 8 to give users the full power of multitasking and using Office applications, all in a svelte, 0.68-inch thin frame. Similar to its predecessors, users can utilize the Yoga 11s in four modes – laptop, tablet, stand and tent – for both work and play.

 

The IdeaPad Yoga 11s features an 11.6-inch HD IPS display that supports 10 finger multi-touch and Motion Control which allows users to swipe their hand in front of the webcam to advance photos, videos and other documents.

The IdeaPad Yoga 11s also has the same attractive rubber painting and a soft-touch exterior as the IdeaPad Yoga 13 and will be available in Silver Grey and Clementine Orange

ThinkPad Helix Fuses Laptop, Tablet and More with “Rip and Flip” Screen

The ThinkPad Helix is a premium convertible that defines the next generation of mobile computing through its ground breaking “rip and flip” design. This special design gives users absolute mobile freedom and versatility with multiple unique ways to use it.

ThinkPad Helix first functions as a high performance UltrabookTM. For added mobility, the 11.6-inch tablet can separate from its base to become the thinnest full-function Intel® 3rd generation Core™ tablet with vPro, also weighing in at 835 grams, making it one of the lightest around. The innovative “rip and flip” screen lets users flip the tablet 180° and snap it back into the base – this mode, called Stand mode, transforms Helix into a mini-movie theatre or business presentation central. From here, users can also fold the screen down to use it as a tablet while keeping the base connected for added ports and
connectivity.

As a ThinkPad-branded device, the Helix also delivers on the brand’s reputation for quality and reliability, along with enhanced security and manageability features.

So, do uWant the iPhone5 still?


iPhone 5 was announced this morning slightly less than a year after the announcement of iPhone 4S on the on the 4th October 2012.

Actually, I was pretty disappointed with the announcement. Partly because practically all the leaks came out to be 100% accurate so it somehow spoils the fun. Secondly, THAT’S ALL APPLE? I AM SO NOT IMPRESSED. 😦

On the bright side, Singapore will be part of the first rollout of the iPhone 5. This is the first time for iPhones. I am glad that Apple decided to upgrade Singapore to “first class” citizen since the launch of the new iPad (aka iPad 3).

The iPhone 5 will be available in Singapore, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the US and the UK on Friday, 21st September 2012 and pre-orders start this Friday, 14th September 2012.

iPhone 5 will roll out to 22 more countries (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland) on 28th September 2012.

iPhone 5 - Black
iPhone 5 – Black

iPhone 5 - WhiteiPhone 5 – White

It comes with both black and white color, available in 16GB, 32GB or 64GB model. The black variant will come with black anodized aluminum back while the white version will have a raw aluminum back. (No more glass cracking if you accidentally dropped them!)

Prices remain the same as iPhone 4S when it first came out:

  • iPhone 5 (16GB) – SGD$948
  • iPhone 5 (32GB) – SGD$1,088
  • iPhone 5 (64GB) – SGD$1,238

iOS 6 software will be available to download for iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, the new iPad, iPad 2 and iPod touch (4th generation onwards) on next Wednesday, 19th September 2012. iPad 1 users, sorry but you have been left out.

In terms of specification vs. iPhone 4S:

Left: iPhone 4, Right: iPhone5

  • Lighter (122gm vs 140gm) and thinner (7.6mm vs 9.3mm)
  • Supports LTE
  • Screen has gone bigger (4″ vs 3.5″)
  • Resolution has gone higher by 176px (1136×640 vs 960×640)
  • Back camera is almost the same but with the ability to take panoramic pictures
  • Front camera has been upgraded to 1.2MP with 720p (30fps) video recording up from VGA quality
  • Battery life has been approved by a little but I doubt you will notice the different. Standby time (225H vs 200H), 3G (8H vs 6H), Wi-Fi (10H vs 9H)
  • New earphones – Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic
  • The headphone jack has been moved to the bottom
  • Uses NanoSIM instead of MicroSIM
  • Uses new connector (8-pin) named “Lightning” (previously was known as Apple 30-pin Dock Connector)
