Lenovo's Legion Gaming Tablet Harks Back to a Long-lost Era

 

Perhaps it's safe to say that the consumer electronics landscape has undergone a massive handheld gaming revival, with several major brands each offering their own premium gaming handheld devices. With that in mind, a lot of these are dedicated portables with physical controls and specially-designed user interfaces.

 

In a somewhat surprising move, Lenovo has just announced expanded availability for the Lenovo Legion Tab, an Android tablet which is designed for gaming performance. Originally launched in China, the tablet features an 8.8-inch display, and is powered by a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, in addition to 12GB of RAM, 256GB of expandable storage, and a 6550 mAh battery. The tablet also features Lenovo's custom cooling system, as well as haptic feedback for gaming sessions.

In a way, the Legion tablet does remind us of the earlier days of dedicated gaming tablets such as the NVIDIA Shield Tablet, which also offered gaming-centric features. Although in a time when Android gaming portables have evolved to include physical controls and other such features, Lenovo's decision to launch a tablet specifically made for gaming does leave us wondering what its strategy is here, especially when the company already has a portable gaming handheld.

 

In any case, the Lenovo Legion Tab will soon arrive for select markets in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia, for an SRP of €599.


Lenovo has a freaking cool transparent laptop that could debut at MWC 2024

 

There's really not much that companies can do when it comes to laptop designs. Sure, they can choose new and interesting materials or stick a bunch of LEDs in it, but that's really all there is. Or is there? It seems that Lenovo could have something amazing to show off at MWC 2024 in the form of a transparent laptop.

 

A post on X by reputable leakster Evan Blass has revealed a transparent laptop concept that Lenovo is apparently working on. This device could make its debut at MWC 2024. Whether or not it will actually be manufactured and sold in the market is a different story, but damn that is pretty cool.

 

 

The renders show a laptop form factor with a completely transparent display. It also features a touchscreen where the physical keyboard should be. It also appears to be using a virtual keyboard. The transparent display is pretty awesome, but the virtual keyboard not so much. We'd still much rather have a physical keyboard given the choice, but this is merely a concept.

 

As for how practical such a laptop is, that's hard to say. Lenovo has a history of launching some wacky and cool concepts in the past, so this doesn't come as a surprise. Just don't get your hopes up at owning one of these laptops in the near future.


Lenovo's Confident that Motorola could Become the World's Third-Biggest Phone Brand

 

Motorola's had a rich and colorful history throughout the years - as one of the earliest mobile phone manufacturers, the brand has since found itself under new management, and is currently owned by Lenovo. With that being said though, Lenovo thankfully did not leave the good Motorola name in the dust, and even thinks that it could rise to become one of the top names in the industry once again.

 

In fact, Lenovo's own President of International Markets Matthew Zielinski thinks that the brand has what it takes to be the third-largest smartphone brand worldwide in the next three years. Speaking to CNBC, he states that he would "bet a paycheck that in three years we [Motorola] will be number three around the world."

 

He adds that Lenovo has turned around the Motorola business and "hyper-prioritized" it, and that is now paying off.

 

 

Going back to its goal to reach third place in the coming years, Lenovo plans to implement a growth strategy which will pit the Motorola brand in the premium segment of the market, facing off against Apple and Samsung. Zielinski points to the Motorola Razr series as one of the company's attempts at competing in a high-end smartphone market.

 

Motorola did have significant success in the US market in recent times, currently sitting in third place behind Samsung and Apple based on market share. Internationally however, Motorola and Lenovo combined recorded around 4% market share in the Q3 2023, managing to land in eighth place.


Lenovo's latest AIO desktop could actually be good for gaming

 

Computers are designed and configured in a variety of ways to cater to different needs. For example, AIO desktop computers are usually created to be space savers and focus more on day-to-day tasks rather than be designed as workhorses for professionals who need more computing power.

 

That doesn't mean that all AIOs are necessarily underpowered, there are some powerful options out there. If you like the concept of an AIO but also need the power for your work, then Lenovo's latest AIO desktop, the ThinkCentre M90a Pro Gen 4 could be the perfect system.

 

Under the hood, the computer is powered by Intel's 13th generation Core processors. It will support up to 64GB of DDR5 RAM, which is more than enough for most users, but what's even more exciting is how it can also be configured to include an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 laptop-class GPU.

This will give the PC enough of a graphics boost where if you need to do things that are graphics intensive, like video editing or rendering or even playing games, the RTX 4050 should be more than capable of delivering.

 

The desktop itself features a 27-inch QHD display, and also features a host of connectivity options like Thunderbolt 4, USB-C, USB-A, HDMI and DisplayPorts for additional display connections, and RJ45 Ethernet. The display itself can also be mounted with Lenovo's Ultra-Flex V Stand that gives users more options when it comes to adjusting the distance and height of the display.

 

If you're interested in the Lenovo ThinkCentre M90a Pro Gen 4, the company mentions that it is available for purchase today in "select markets" but did not mention how much it will cost.


Lenovo gets into handheld gaming with the Legion Go

Gaming laptops are great if you are constantly on the go but still want to play your games, but sometimes it's just not practical to lug it around with you. If you're interested in gaming on the go, then Lenovo could have something for you. During IFA 2023, the company announced the Legion Go.

 

The Legion Go is similar to other handhelds that have been launched in recent years, like the Steam Deck and ASUS ROG Ally. The Legion Go will come with an 8.8-inch QHD+ PureSight display with a 16:10 aspect ratio. It supports up to 144Hz refresh rates and offers up to 500 nits of brightness.

Under the hood, the Legion Go is powered by an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor and AMD's RNDA Graphics and comes with up to 16GB of RAM, along with up to 1TB of storage that can be further expanded up to 2TB via an expansion slot. It also boasts removable controllers on the side, similar to consoles like the Nintendo Switch, along with a 49.2Wh battery.

 

Lenovo has also equipped the console with its Coldfront thermal technology and a liquid crystal polymer 79-blade fan that helps keep the device cool even under heavy loads. The best part is that it runs Windows 11, which means that in theory, you should be able to play all your PC games as long as they support gaming controllers.

 

As for pricing, the Lenovo Legion Go is priced starting at $700 and will be available for purchase this October.
