Greetings from Xiamen, China! I’m here for an overnight trip with the Lenovo and Open Communications team. We had a chance to tour the Lenovo factory where their smartphones and tablets are made. More on this in another post. Last night was Lenovo’s debut for their Q3 lineup of phones in time for the holidays. These are the Lenovo K860, P700i and S560.
EDIT: If you want a 5″ Lenovo phablet that competes with the Samsung Galaxy Note, the new Lenovo S880 sells for PHP14,999 only. It’s also dual SIM!
Lenovo is on a roll. First, they upped the bar of the PHP 5,000 thereabouts smartphone by introducing the dual SIM A65 Android device. Today, they are selling a powerful Android device that comes with a big 4″ screen and a long-lasting 2500mAh battery. This is by far the most impressive package we’ve seen for a mid-ranged Android device with all the latest updates that’s only a little over PHP 10,000. Plus, it’s dual SIM.
We have a unit with us so expect a more in-depth review. This phone is being sold in stalls starting today.
