In 5 years of its existence, Android has been seen on a number of devices and places. From phones to tablets, gaming consoles to smart TV boxes, to even smart watches. However, there was always a demarcation between such portable devices and a full laptop. Phones, and tablets in particular had a single screen for touch and type, while laptop had a form factor allowing to type on easily on keyboards, with the comfort of a large screen. And, what if the both can be merged? That’s the question which surely would have inspired Lenovo to create A10- the world’s first Android powered laptop. It can be said as the convertible device which can be used both as a tablet and laptop as well.
Lenovo has customized the laptop mode of the OS to get quick access to app launcher, task bar and status bar. There’s also File Manager app to easily manage larger library of files. The stand mode as the name suggests, make the A10 as a tablet.
The experiment from the Lenovo is really interesting, but there doesn’t seem anything useful in it for the end-user. Android OS is not built for laptops, so it does not provide a good experience.
