(HKSE: 0992) (PINK SHEETS: LNVGY) today announced a line-up of new
Android tablets, offering configurations and form factors to match
consumer needs for both ultra-portable tablets and multimedia
performers. The portfolio, which also boasts unique connectivity
features, will be available starting in the second quarter 2013.
The range starts with two new A-series tablets, seven-inch 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 announced the new 10-inch S6000, which offers extended I/O
options, a large, vibrant screen and a super-slim profile that looks
sophisticated and elegant, whether the user is web-surfing in the coffee
shop or enjoying movies and games at home.
“Lenovo’s latest Android tablet family is designed to meet the demands
of a wide range of customers, particularly young, active users who are
always on the go, and have adopted the seven-inch form factor as their
own. With these latest additions to our tablet portfolio, we’ve created
devices that address these customers’ needs, as well as devices for more
demanding gamers and multimedia users,” said Chen Wenhui, vice president
Lenovo and GM Mobile BU, “We believe that our Android family of tablets
will appeal to customers across the world as we’ve built our products to
be highly accessible and flexible to serve multiple needs and budgets.”
S6000, Mobile “Home Entertainment” Center
As tablets have continued their march into the mainstream, increasing
demands with regards to larger screen devices have raised the bar for
tablet makers. Lenovo has responded with the S6000, a sleek and powerful
option for customers looking for a device that switches seamlessly from
entertainment to social media and beyond. Powered by the MTK 8389/8125
1.2 GHz quad-core processor, the S6000 shines as a multimedia and gaming
tablet fronted by a 10.1-inch IPS 1280X800 display with a wide,
178-degree viewing angle, micro HDMI port and digital microphone. The
S6000 also offers a number of additions to optimize its performance as a
connectivity tool for social networkers including optional HSPA+ and a
substantial battery that allows for more than 8 hours of continuous WiFi
web browsing. Even with these specifications though, the S6000 does not
lose track of style and convenience; it is all tied together in a super
slim (8.6mm) and light (560g) frame that feels good and helps users look
A3000, Full Performance in a Compact Package
In today’s connected world, devices must be mobile, without skimping on
performance. The A3000 bristles with specifications typically found in a
much larger device, all packed into a seven-inch form factor that is
thin and light. Powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core, MTK processor, the A3000
optimizes the user experience for games, video, photo-sharing and
web-browsing, offering seamlessly fluid navigation and highly responsive
performance. The benefits of the seven-inch form factor are not ignored
on the A3000 either. The tablet, which sports an IPS 1024x600 screen,
weighs in at less than 340g and is only 11mm thick, but can still hold a
wealth of content with an extensive memory, which can be extended to
64GB with the external micro-SD card. Optional 3G HSPA+ support ensures
users stay connected on the go with Lenovo’s ultra-portable tablet.
A1000, Pocket Studio with Dolby®
The A1000 delivers an audio experience normally reserved for more
expensive tablets in a seven-inch device. With Dolby Digital Plus
integrated into the device and large, front-facing speakers that ensure
the sound is directed at the users’ ears rather than the floor, the
A1000 is perfect for music lovers and those seeking a “pocket studio”
for either music or movies. The A1000 runs Android Jelly Bean 4.1 on a
1.2GHz dual-core processor and has on-board storage of up to 16GB,
extendable to 32GB with a micro-SD slot, so users can load content up
and take it to the gym, the office or anywhere else they want to
experience high-quality sights and sounds. It also comes in either black
or white, allowing users to customize their Lenovo pocket studio to
Lenovo Mobile Access
All the new Android tablets come with Lenovo Mobile Access, a unique
service that allows users to connect instantly “out of the box”. When
customers first power up their Lenovo device, they will see an icon
indicating Lenovo as their access provider. Without having to set up a
special data plan, they can immediately start browsing web pages,
accessing their email and sharing content with friends using HSPA+ 3G
access or through WiFi according to their specific configuration. When
the initial Lenovo Mobile Access service expires users will be prompted
with the option to easily renew their plan or select an alternative
Pricing and Availability1
The newest Android tablets will be available worldwide from Q2, 2013.
Although pricing varies according to market, configuration and model,
each tablet in the range is competitively priced to ensure maximum
accessibility to a premium user experience for all customers.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
