I was recently invited to attend the Bloggers launch for LENOVO MOBILE. And I was like, wow. I’ve only known Lenovo as a laptop and now, they came up with mobile phones.
I was excited with this new product because I’ve been eyeing to get a new phone that will at least give a fair competition to the iPhone I am currently using. I love mu iPhone but there are stuff that I can’t do with it like the ones offered by Android phones.
One thing that I liked with the Lenovo Mobile is that they proved that a mobile phone does not have to be expensive for it to be branded, trendy or even techie.
Here are some stuff I found out about Lenovo Mobile:
Lenovo Mobile Communications Technology Ltd., China’s leading mobile phone manufacturer, is offering Lenovo mobile phones through Open Communications Inc. and its more than 2,000 retail outlets nationwide.
The branded phones, which range from the classic bar to the popular QWERTY and Android, will sell for Php 10,000 and below and are already available at some of the leading stores nationwide.
Hyacinth Serrano, Open Communications business unit head, said they are targeting tech-savvy and fashion-oriented teenagers and young professionals on the strength of Lenovo’s brand and product image.
“Lenovo is known worldwide for its stylish, affordable computer and mobile phone products that don’t compromise quality and durability. The phones boast of world-class hardware and software technology that Lenovo is known for,” Serrano said.
Lenovo phones use a single manufacturing platform for all parts and components to ensure utmost quality and reliability. The mobile phones also go through several quality control tests similar to what Lenovo laptops and desktop PCs are subjected to.
“The Lenovo mobile phones also have distinct traits and personalities similar to our target market,” Serrano said.
The new Lenovo mobile phones include the S800 fashion phone, A60 Android phone, Q350 Internet phone, Q330 QWERTY phone, A336 gaming phone and E156 basic phone.
The Lenovo S800 is the perfect accessory for fashionistas who want to stay in touch, in style. Apart from its sleek design, the S800 swanks a 2.4-inch color display that’s completely see-through. A built-in answering machine, 2MP camera/webcam and other features make the phone both chic and functional.
The Lenovo A60 is for those who want to keep in touch and stay in touch with the hottest apps. It is a dual-SIM phone equipped with the latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS for easy downloading of apps. The A60 also has a 3.5 inch HVGA capacitive multi-touch screen and built-in portable WiFi spot.
The Lenovo Q350 is the perfect gadget for those who are constantly online and on the go. This QWERTY phone has a built-in Bluetooth, WiFi, push mail and social networking apps (Facebook, Twitter, Nimbuzz and Opera Mini browser) that offer more ways to share experiences with the world.
The Lenovo Q330 is a full QWERTY phone that is ideal for those who can’t get enough of social networking. It has a built-in Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo Messenger and Opera Mini browser that allow one to share experiences with the world.
The Lenovo A336 is for the avid gamer and music lover. Its built-in game simulator allows users to download free NES ROMs through the Internet, save it onto a microSD card and play it on the phone with its dedicated and customizable game keys and 2.4-inch screen. It also has dedicated MP3 music keys and password protection for messages, phonebook, call logs and gallery files.
The Lenovo E156 is a dual SIM phone for those who wish to talk and enjoy a few more add-ons. On top of standard features such as music player, FM radio and voice recorder, the E156 is GPRS and WAP capable to enable users to access information on the go and stay connected with friends on social networking sites.
During the event, Lenovo Mobile was nice enough to raffled off three of their mobile units and I got the chance to bring home a brand new A336 Gaming Phone. Although what I wanted to have was the 6800 Fashion Phone because of its unique battery that looks like an aquarium and the see-through screen, I guess I have to wait for it to happen.
I’m still thinking if I’ll be raffling off the A3360 Gaming Phone I got from Lenovo Mobile, but who knows? Stay tuned and maybe I might give this away to one of our loyal followers.
