Johannesburg, South Africa, June 22, 2020 – Remember when devices were designed to only do one thing, in one place, and for a single user? Not anymore. Our world is changing fast; with smarter technology more prevalent than ever in our daily lives, multitasking has increasingly become the norm. With grab-and-go form factors, our screens are our lifelines when we’re on-the-go or just moving from room to room in our own homes.
As we are finding out, remote working, online learning, and virtual social gatherings do not have to be hosted from any particular place – all it takes is the right technology. In this time of connectivity, Lenovo is committed to delivering on all fronts by providing more people with the accessible and multipurpose technology they will need to thrive.
A simple way to enjoy this innovative versatility and personal connection at home is with the upgraded Lenovo Smart Tab M10 FHD Plus (2nd Gen) with Alexa Built-in™, which enables the popular hands-free ‘Show Mode’ experience from Alexa® when docked and charging in its Smart Dock, with the added benefit of being a full-function Android™ tablet for when you don’t feel like staying put in one room.
Best of Both Worlds
For over a year, households have enjoyed Alexa’s hands-free ‘Show Mode’ experience without the need for multiple devices by simply placing their full-function Lenovo Smart Tab into the complimentary Smart Dock to charge. You might ask, “Can it get any better?” Yes, it can. Lenovo took what customers loved about its original game-changing tablet created in collaboration with Amazon® and made it even better; introducing the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 FHD Plus (2nd Gen) with Alexa Built-in.
By using customer insights to identify opportunities for improvement, this newly designed tablet is easier to set up and sports a more expansive 10.3-inch Full HD IPS screen, a faster and more powerful mobile processor, and a sleek Platinum Grey metal back cover that complements nearly any home décor.
Designed to be portable and light at 460 grams (1lb), the technology inside the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 FHD Plus (2nd Gen) with Alexa Built-in gets a significant boost with up to 2.3Ghz Octa-core MediaTek Helio® P22 mobile processor for more multitasking, plus a TDDI chip (Touch and Display Driver Integration) for better and more efficient display and touch sensing for up to 9 hours of battery life.1
Easily and more securely log in to your tablet with the instant facial unlock feature with its integrated camera. Connect to friends and family members when you get cabin fever using the smarter ‘Drop In’ calling feature that serves as a modern two-way intercom, plus get even more advanced Alexa communication features such as messaging and voice/video calling between supported devices, at no additional cost.2
Another must-have for families staying at home is the enhanced Kid’s Mode that offers parental controls, dedicated kids’ content, and specialized eye protection features to reduce harmful blue light, plus ‘posture’ and ‘bumpy environment’ alerts to encourage a healthy viewing gesture when hand-holding the tablet.
When the tablet is hand-held, watching YouTube™ and playing games just got better with four-sided narrow bezel with up to 4.6 mm (0.18 inches) slim borders on each side, plus dual front-facing speakers tuned with Dolby Atmos® for immersive sound.
Or go hands-free and see what’s new on Prime Video™. The modern fabric covering on the Lenovo Smart Dock in new Graphite Grey hue is designed to look great even while charging on pogo pin connectors. You can also ask Alexa to tell you the latest news updates, show your calendar, search for recipes, control your home’s smart devices3 and listen to your favorite tunes with Amazon Music™ and watch as the lyrics flash across the screen—all with just your voice from across the room, thanks to three far-field mics.4
