Portfolio of Devices for Accessing Personal Media and Interacting with the Family
LAS VEGAS, NV – January 7, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Showa portfolio of devices geared toward the home to allow users to enjoy, connect and interact with their media and content. These devices include the Lenovo Beacon personal cloud storage device, the Lenovo N308 Android home computer, the Lenovo Horizon 2 Table PC and the Lenovo A740 All-in-One (AIO) PC.
Lenovo’s first personal cloud storage device, Beacon, allows users to easily store and share multimedia via their PC or mobile device in the home or remotely1. Using the downloadable Android app created for Beacon, users can even turn their Android smartphone into a remote control for the Personal Cloud Storage Device. As Lenovo’s first Android desktop, the Lenovo N308 AIO provides access to a world of apps on its 19.5-in multitouch display starting at $4502. The Horizon 2 Table PC expands upon Lenovo’s leadership in multimode computing with a radically thinner and more portable design, and as the thinnest 27-in AIO3, the Lenovo A740 creates a versatile and stylish home PC.
Beacon Makes Personal Media Always-On
Beacon makes it simple for users to capture and relive memories from personal media: With the camera auto upload feature, shutterbugs can automatically upload a photo from their smartphone’s camera via WiFi or 3G4 to store a copy of it on Beacon. Using Lenovo’s custom app, users can even use their Android smartphone as a remote control to play their multimedia stored on Beacon to a TV connected by HDMI.
Beacon offers a more personal solution versus “in the air” cloud storage services. Files reside inside Beacon, and the device stays fixed in a physical location in the home. It offers large storage capacity easily expandable up to 6TB, and there are no monthly fees for data storage. Outside file transfer to one’s mobile device occurs seamlessly from Beacon. Beacon runs an Intel®Atom™ dual core processor, supports file transfer through 3G4, WiFi and Ethernet and comes in white or black.
Android Moves to the Big Screen
Horizon 2 Recasts the Table PC Mold
For example, users can now access media from their PC or smartphone on their home network directly on Horizon 2’s display when it lays flat in Table Mode with the Aura interface activated. They can either use the new Horizon mobile app to shake their mobile Android device, allowing the content to “fall”onto Horizon 2’s screen. Or they can place the mobile device on the screen, which signals to the Aura dial to open around it and “pull” out content onto Horizon 2’s display. Also, users can edit photos and share directly from Aura to Facebook.
New motion control features allow for easy navigation of photos, presentations, e-book pages and music tracks, and using Horizon 2’s new face tracing feature, users can upload photos from their camera or smartphone and the Aura interface will try to recognize the faces in the photos. The Horizon 2 also comes with dozens more new multi-user, multi-touch family entertainment including Ubisoft’s Chubby Kings; a four-player family fun game, Omnivision’s Halli Galli; a popular entertainment game; and Legacy Games’ Crayola’s Songbook; a children’s interactive musical and drawing experience along with several education apps such as I Spy from Scholastic.
Horizon 2 continues the interpersonal Table PC’s focus facilitating collaborative computing in both Table and Stand Modes with its Windows 8.1 10-finger touchscreen, large traditional or hybrid storage, up to 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and Dolby®Home Theater.™ Of course, users can adjust the screen in Stand Mode for a performance AIO desktop. They can also enjoy it in Table Mode when it’s laid flat for computing together and playing games with up to four people. With nearly four hours of battery reserve5and optional table accessory, it can be transported easily from room to room.
