Lenovo launches Table PC
Los Angeles, January 8, 2013
Lenovo has launched the IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC, the company’s first "interpersonal PC," a multi-user, multi-touch, multi-mode device for the home.
The device allows users to turn their personal computing experience into a shared computing experience, it said.
As a Table PC, Horizon can lie flat on any surface, lets two or more people use the screen at the same time. It supports interactive physical gaming accessories and is designed for touch screen game-play among several players.
“Horizon takes advantage of Windows 8 touch functionality to bring customised games from Electronic Arts and Ubisoft to life in a way players have never seen before. Horizon can also easily transform into a 27-inch high-performance desktop to handle whatever productivity tasks users need to do,” the company said.
At the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show this week, Lenovo also demonstrated a large 39-inch wide-screen Table PC, code-named "Gamma." While still an early concept, Gamma illustrates the outstanding multi-user entertainment experiences such a large screen can provide and is indicative of Lenovo's future direction in Table PC computing.
“We've seen technology shifts across the four screens, from the desktop to the laptop, tablet and smartphone, and yet, while people have more computing power than ever before, there is still room for technologies like Horizon that bring people together. Horizon makes personal computing interpersonal computing with shared, collaborative experiences among several people,” said Peter Hortensius, president, Product Group, Lenovo.
“Now many people can enjoy different photos, music and video on the same screen, and they can play games with our special accessories that blend physical and digital interaction. Horizon reflects our commitment to delivering the innovative products that define the PC Plus era.”
The IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC will be available beginning in early summer through Lenovo business partners and www.lenovo.com. Prices start at approximately $1,699. – TradeArabia News Service
