Lenovo's finally made a definitive statement on what they're doing in the mobile computing space, and they're going to finish the year differently than they started it: the Android-powered LePad is coming in the next few months.
Lenovo's attempt to herald a category of mobile devices has been put off—again—as they announced today that they're ditching their custom Skylight Linux UI in favor of Android. It's a significant blow to the already dying smartbook category.
What if I told you there was an ultralight device that put all the functionality of a powerful tablet into the thinnest, lightest laptop you ever saw? It exists. It could be great. And it's dying before its time.
Just because most of us bought iPads doesn't mean that any of you should. There are plenty of devices, out now or coming soon, that can do some things as well—or better. Here's a roundup of the best:
The Skylight is part netbook, part smartphone, and I'm pretty sure I could throw it 50 yards. The real question is if that makes it a game-changer or a novelty act.
The Skylight is Lenovo's entrant into the nascent smartbook category, and with Qualcomm providing its ballyhooed 1GHz Snapdragon chipset, it may well be an important evolutionary step in mobile computing.
Images have revealed a hole on the Moon's surface that is at least 260 feet deep and may lead to an underground tunnel more than 1,200 feet wide which is part of an entire network of such winding tubes.
The Solatube Daylighting skylight uses a reflective dome to catch light rays and direct them at any angle, regardless of the time of day. It then transports the trapped sunbeams down through a reflective tube into your desired area—think of you going down a waterslide. It's not rocket science, but definitely looks…
Regular skylights merely let light in. This Suntracker's 3 aluminum mirrors track the sun using a tiny solar powered motor. Pretty cool way to get 1000-watts worth of lighting in your house for free. Don't worry, the 95% reflective mirrors hit a diffuser first, so you won't feel like an ant under a magnifying glass on…
