Lenovo Multi-Mode Devices to Satisfy the Wired Travelers’ Wanderlust

Frequent travellers are all too familiar with the pain points of travelling with technology, from bulky laptops posing inconvenience during security checks to gadgets being the cause of excess baggage weight. Fortunately for today’s jet-setters, personal technology leader Lenovo has developed a slew of handy multi-mode devices that enable them to stay connected and remain productive wherever they are.

“Lenovo’s latest touch-optimized multi-mode devices including the Flex 2, Yoga 2 Pro and Yoga Tablet have the right mix of portability and productivity to keep travelers connected, organized, and entertained while on the go. Defying norms and breaking the mold in traditional design, these devices address today’s wired wanderers’ irks like tray-table constraints, outlet outage, and limited connectivity, crystallizing Lenovo’s commitment to innovation in the PC Plus era,” said Michael Ngan, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines.

Flex 2: Convenience and productivity embodied in a dual-mode machine

Featuring a comfortable keyboard and a stylish one-piece multi-touch touchpad with optional cool metal palmrest, the Flex 2 dual-mode laptop gives travellers touch-centric functionality and attention-grabbing 300° rotational capability, to keep them productive wherever they are. For killing time during arduous train journeys and plane rides, travellers can flip the keyboard by 300° to transition into Stand mode to view movies and riveting digital content in a whole new way. With the Flex 2’s HD widescreen display, NVIDIA GeForce graphics, and Dolby Advanced Audio v2 technology, travellers get to enjoy a rich entertainment experience when playing games, listening to music, and watching movies. They can also count on the Flex 2’s optional dual array digital microphone for truer to life calls when using the 720p HD webcam to video chat with their friends and relatives back home.

Yoga 2 Pro: 360 degree rotation and multi-touch screen for extreme mobility

Unbelievably thinner and lighter than  before at 15.5 mm thin and 1.39 kg, the extra mobile Yoga 2 Pro multi-mode ultrabook gives a new meaning to “travelling light”, as users can enjoy four modes- laptop, tablet, stand, and tent- in one nifty package, sparing them the hassle of bringing several devices along to their vacation. Its 350-nit screen featuring IPS 178° wide angle viewing allows travellers to enjoy visual clarity and exceptional screen resolution from any line of sight, for a better movie and multimedia experience. With the Yoga 2 Pro’s motion control and voice control, travellers can easily navigate through a wide range of applications, so they get to multi-task even when they are on the go.

Yoga Tablet: Built to last for the long haul with 18-hour battery life

Equipped with 18 hours of battery life, an ergonomic handle, and a built-in adjustable kick-stand, the Yoga Tablet makes travelling seem effortless. From giving loved ones back home a glimpse of the sights they encounter in real time via its high-definition 8MP rear camera and catching the perfect viewing angle in their passenger seat with its hold, tilt, and stand modes, to reading e-books comfortably with automatic Smart Display, which adjusts screen brightness to ambient light conditions, and enjoying good music with Dolby® Audio speakers’ excellent sound quality, the Yoga Tablet covers travellers’ diverse requirements in a portable form factor that they can easily slip into their travel duffel bags. Aside from lasting for 18 hours, the Yoga Tablet’s battery can also double up as a power bank that allows users to recharge their phones without having to rely on power outlets.

Lenovo goes South, opens 2 new Lenovo Mobile Exclusive Stores in Batangas

MANILA, PHILIPPINES – August 28, 2014: There’s only uphill progression for Lenovo as the company heads for South Luzon and opens two new Lenovo Mobile Exclusive Stores (LMES) in Batangas.

One of the two LMES is located at Level 2 in Robinson’s Place Lipa, and is owned and operated by Green Telecommunications Trading Inc. The other LMES is at the second floor of SM City Lipa in Batangas and is being operated by Presnet Cellphone Shop.

Latest data from the National Statistics Office (NSO) showed that over a thousand businesses have since flourished in the CALABARZON area, especially in Batangas. During the Calabarzon Trade and Industry Forum held earlier this year, Batangas has also been dubbed the next Metro Manila. Further giving the city strong potential for economic growth and stability are the presence of the Batangas Port plus three industrial parks in Tanauan City and in the towns of Sto. Tomas and Malvar.

“The CALABARZON area is one of the healthiest and most progressive economies among the regions in the country today, and it is just ideal that we put up our first Lenovo Mobile Exclusive Store in the area in Batangas. This is in line with our campaign to provide a variety of affordable and premium choices to our consumers which, of course, is being offered by Lenovo,” said Michael Ngan, Country General Manager of Lenovo Philippines.

The two newly-opened LMES will carry a variety of Lenovo smartphone products such as the latest A series which includes the A680, A859 and A526; the new Lenovo S Series such as the S660 and S860; and their premium flagship smartphone, the Lenovo S850.
