My 11-year-old cousin Henry from Denmark walks around the Toshiba booth at IFA 2013, testing out the new Toshiba Tegra4 tablets, checking out the latest Toshiba 4K Upscaling Blu-ray player, Windows 8 touch-screen devices and more.
The Vibe X has a Full HD 5″ screen and is one the smallest devices with a 5″ screen. The Vibe X has a polycarbonate design that looks like metal. The vibe X has a 5mp front camera which is good for self portraits. The Vibe X has the latest Mediatek 6589T processor at 1.5ghz and 2gb of ram. Unfortunately the device has no removable battery and a fixed 16gb of storage. Lenovo puts their own custom user interface on top Android 4.2 similar to MIUI in that it removes the app drawer called Lenovo Launcher. The Vibe X Should be available in China in October and outside of China in December and the price is yet to be announced.
Lenovo mostly targets Asia, Russia, the Middle-east, developing countries particularly with its smartphones and has yet to announce plans for Europe or the USA.
The first product shown was a Toshiba W30t which is a hybrid laptop and tablet with a detachable screen. The W30t runs on the Windows 8 platform. Similar to other laptop hybrids the W30t keyboard docks includes an additional battery and can achieve up to 10 hours of battery life with the dock plugged in and 5 hours with it removed. The W30t has a 13.3″ touchscreen with an unspecified “HD” (probably 1366×768) resolution. Unlike other tablets and ultrabooks the W30t doesn’t have a ssd and instead has a conventional hard drive. The product comes with either Intel Core processors or AMD APU’s. The price should be 750 USD starting price for the Toshiba and even less with an AMD processor. Expect a Q4 2013 release.
AMD shows off some of the latest best value Laptops based on their A-series APUs, such as a 15.4″ AMD A10 laptop from Acer selling at $480 with additional ATI discreet graphics inside, also featuring examples by Lenovo, Toshiba, HP and other.
Kobo is probably the second biggest seller of E Ink e-readers in the world, focusing on many of the markets where Amazon isn’t wanting to have a big presence. The new Kobo Aura HD e-reader is awesome, features the thinnest and lightest 6″ touch and front-lit E Ink e-reader yet on the market. The Kobo Arc 10 HD is a new Tegra4 tablet with a 2560×1600 screen retailing at 379 Euro in Europe. Kobo also talks about a 1920×1080 7″ Tablet to retail at 199 Euros. What do you think about Kobo? I think Kobo is being very aggressive and coming out with very interesting mass market devices selling more and more.
