Lenovo’s Relentless Innovation Delivers Power and Portability with Two New Think Products

Lenovo (SEHK:0992) (Pink Sheets:LNVGY) today, at its Accelerate 2014 Partner Forum in Orlando, announced two new additions to its product portfolio, both ideally suited for business users. The ThinkPad 10, Lenovo’s ten inch premium multimode business tablet, offers a full PC experience and uncompromised productivity with a range of business features, no matter the working environment. The redesigned ThinkStation P300 workstation features the ultimate in usability and performance at an affordable price point.

ThinkPad 10: The Best Business Tablet gets Better

Pioneering for a superior user experience, ThinkPad 10 is optimized for business professionals seeking the ultimate in flexibility and connectivity. Constructed from premium aluminium with Gorilla glass to protect its ten inch full HD vivid display, the ThinkPad 10 tablet delivers a premium mobile experience with enhanced productivity capability in a purposeful lightweight design. Users can be creative with four flexible modes – Tablet, Stand, Laptop and Desktop. When connected to the optional ThinkPad Tablet Dock or USB3.0 docking station, users can add an external display, mouse, and either the Compact Bluetooth keyboard or directly attach the ThinkPad 10 Ultrabook full sized keyboard, making the transition from a highly mobile tablet to a resourceful office environment seamless. The Quickshot Cover makes photo taking a breeze. Whether for personal or business use, a quick flip of the cover protecting the eight megapixel camera launches the app automatically, ready for that dramatic landscape or the insurance assessment.

“Customers want a versatile device that adapts to their way of life and offers uncompromised productivity whether in the office or on the move,” said Luis Hernandez, vice president and general manager, ThinkPad, Lenovo. “Our new ThinkPad 10 tablet marries business optimized features with a unique multimode design to offer an exceptional computing experience that allows users to work, play and create in virtually any environment. ThinkPad 10 is engineered for quality you can touch and measure and is designed to adapt to be what you need, when you need it.”

Boasting an unmatched range of business features and accessories, the ThinkPad 10 comes with a digitizer pen for pinpoint accuracy and natural writing input, Windows 8.1 including 64-bit support, up to 4GB of memory and up to 128GB of storage. Wireless options including 3G/4G LTE1 ensure access to data virtually anywhere and up to ten hours of battery life provides productivity throughout the day. IT managers will also appreciate VPN access control, application deployment management and can prevent users from installing prohibited apps. In addition, Lenovo Services offer a complete suite of packages, including sealed battery warranties, accidental damage protection and laser etching and tagging.

ThinkStation P300: Engineered with Quality

The ThinkStation P300 entry-level workstation boasts an intuitive new purposeful design that delivers unprecedented flexibility. The redesigned chassis no longer features a bulky handle, but rather intuitive red touch points and extended lip in the front and the back for easy carrying and deployment. Additionally, the new FLEX module gives users the option to add only the components they need, allowing customized productivity-boosting configurations with added cost savings for vertical workflows. The FLEX module supports a combination of an ultra-slim optical drive, 29-in-1 media card reader, IEEE 1394 Firewire, and eSATA.

“Professional workstation users run very advanced, specialized applications. The ThinkStation P300 features the processing power, graphics capabilities and ISV certifications, needed to run these applications smoothly,” said Victor Rios, vice president and general manager, Workstation, Lenovo. “But the ThinkStation P300 also gives these users a new level of customization. The new FLEX module provides a Fully Loaded Experience, offering customers truly unique configurations that match their specific project needs and goals.”

The ThinkStation P300 is available with the latest Intel® Xeon® E3-1200v3 product family as well as new 4th Generation Intel® Core processor and ECC memory support for improved productivity and reliability.

“The new Lenovo P300 with our latest Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200v3 product family, including Intel® HD P4600 Graphics, delivers workstation performance and graphics demanded by design engineers engaged in advanced 3D mechanical designs and workloads,” said Frank Soqui, Intel General Manager of Technical Compute Cloud and Client. “Now professional users who may have previously purchased a desktop client with hard drives can afford a real workstation with advanced graphics and solid state drives.”

Regardless of the industry - Oil & Gas, Media & Entertainment, Engineering, Architecture, Finance, Medical & Science – workstations run mission critical workloads and users are running very specific, high performance applications. They demand that the software runs fast and without error. The ThinkStation P300 delivers on all fronts. Extensive ISV certifications ensure application reliability and the P300 is engineered for superior dependability. The broad selection of processor, graphics and memory configurations safeguard investment and boost performance and productivity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
