Word about Lenovo working on an Android powered laptop broke out a couple of weeks back. The company didn’t confirm its existence until last week, when it revealed that it really does have an Android laptop up its sleeve. Lenovo A10 has now been launched, the company’s new 10.1 inch laptop that’s running Google’s mobile operating system, version 4.2 to be precise.
The company has focused on making the laptop light and portable, it weighs less than 1kg and measures 17.3mm at its thickest point. Lenovo A10 is actually based on a dual-mode platform, a laptop mode and a stand mode. In laptop mode, the device offers a unique and customized user interface with an app launcher, status bar and task bar. In stand mode, the A10’s 10.1 inch 1,366×768 display can be flipped around 300 degrees for greater ease of use with touch-enabled applications. Lenovo A10 has a 1.6GHz RK3188 quadcore Cortex A9 processor, which providers “solid performance for gaming and entertainment purposes.” There’s a 0.3 megapixel webcam for video chatting. According to Lenovo, the A10’s battery is good for up to nine hours of continuous playback. Pricing and availability of this device will obviously vary by region, Lenovo itself hasn’t revealed exactly when the A10 is going to be available in major markets such as North America and Europe.
