Lenovo previews "world's first foldable PC"

Lenovo previews Lenovo previews "world's first foldable PC"

It's hard to talk about Lenovo's new prototype, announced overnight at the company's Accelerate conference, simply due to lack of adequate language.

Lenovo has kicked off its presence in the foldables market in a big way with its new ThinkPad foldable PC prototype.

The device you see above and below is a prototype ThinkPad. According to Lenovo's research, a large percentage of mobile workers would prefer to use larger laptop displays but are unwilling to compromise on portability. But the new product will be part of Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 flagship series and will arrive in 2020. The company is aiming for a full day of use, with planned support for cellular data.

A Bluetooth keyboard comes with the foldable device and is a must for working professionals.

Looking at a couple of hands-on videos online, the device is still a prototype and you'll notice a crease in the middle of the display just like the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The Galaxy Fold user manual for the AT&T version has leaked in the Korean media, and it does indeed contain a number of warnings based on the issues that were encountered. The company is also doubling the testing on its device's hinge to ensure functionality and reliability. We no longer create devices for our needs but needs for our devices, driven in our experiments by the fact of possibility rather than the enthusiasm of desire. Or at least it will be very soon, pending a slight delay.

2019 has been declared the Year Of The Folding Smartphone.

Software is a different story. However, Lenovo also had another new device on hand to unveil: the ThinkCentre M90n-1 Nano. Still, it was enough to get an idea of what a foldable PC is going to look like and what it'll be like to work on one. Combining the corporate bonafides of ThinkPads with the design flair of a certain other computer maker's popular laptops, the ThinkBook lineup is explicitly designed for younger workers who need business essentials but crave them in an aesthetically pleasing package that doesn't scream "cubicle occupant".
