Modified Android installed on Lenovo A10 changes based on screen position
Lenovo has announced its first notebook running on Android, one that it confirmed rumors about last weekend. The A10, running on a customized version of Android 4.2, can be used as a standard notebook with the user interface geared towards normal desktop-style usage, or with the screen turned enough to make it a standing multi-touch display with touch-optimized apps and interface.
The display itself is a 10.1-inch 1366x768 model, which can rotate around 300 degrees to enter the "stand mode." Running on a quad-core Cortex-A9 processor running at 1.6GHz, The Verge reports that it will offer up to 32GB of storage and a maximum of 2GB of RAM. Stereo speakers, a 0.3MP webcam, and a nine-hour battery life are also included, with an SD slot, USB, micro USB, HDMI, and headphone ports also believed to be included with the notebook.
Lenovo has yet to reveal how much it will sell for, nor its regional availability.
