Lenovo outs first Android-based laptop

The Chinese tech giant Lenovo has announced the Lenovo A10 – a new affordable, portable laptop, which is also the company’s first to run Android as its main OS.

Designed for entertainment, web browsing and productivity the Lenovo A10 comes with a 10.1-inch display at HD resolution (1366 x 768 pixels). The device is powered by a RK3188 quad-core Cortex-A9 processor at 1.6 GHz, which is the highest clocked quad-core ARM chip to date, a battery that provides up to nine hours of continuous video playback and also has built-in speakers and a 0.3 MP camera. All this weighs less than 1 kilogram and is just 17.3 mm at its thickest point. The laptop runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean as main OS.

“With the recent explosive growth in Android-based, smart connected devices, customers are relying more on Android apps for both work and play. Why should they be required to switch and duplicate to use their laptop? Lenovo’s A10 brings ultra-portability and dual-mode benefits to Android users at a reasonable price,” said Bai Peng, vice president and general manager at Lenovo Business Group.

The Lenovo A10 will not be available in North America. As to pricing German customers will be able to get it for EUR 249.
