Laptops may be the new desktop, with mobile computers already outselling desktop PCs. But Lenovo sees the mobile space getting even bigger. In fact, within five years, Lenovo’s CEO expects 80% of the company’s sales to come from mobile products with wireless internet connections.
That doesn’t just mean laptops and netbooks. Lenovo introduces its first smartphone at CES in January. And while I haven’t heard anything about an iPad competitor from Lenovo just yet, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a consumer oriented slate PC in the next year or two if that space really takes off. In the meantime, Lenovo offers a handful of convertible tablets with full QWERTY keyboards including the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t and ThinkPad X200 and X201.
