Lenovo Leads in Launching Windows 11 on New Yoga Laptops
Lenovo unveiled new premium laptops providing fast and responsive computing ideal for the next normal. Introducing the world’s lightest 14-inch OLED laptop for exceptional portability, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon and the new 16-inch ultra-slim Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro—amongst the first laptops bringing you the powerful next-gen Windows 11 operating system (OS) with greater convenience and seamless experiences.

Lenovo Unveils a Brighter Future for Hybrid with Premium Tablets with 5G and next-gen Add-ons
Tablets are indispensable for both work and play delivering endless ways to enjoy entertainment and get more done at home and on the go. The world needs a healthy escape now more than ever ergo consumers are spending more time streaming everything from shows and movies to games. According to research, Millennial parents are more likely to provide their kids with their own tablet than their own TVs, continuing the pattern of young digital natives learning and engaging through streaming on YouTube and other social platforms over cable.
The new normal has also led to an uptick in consumers creating their own digital content, and as any rambling creative who’s ever tried to write lyrics, post to their blog or submit an online review from their tablet’s touchscreen will attest – a physical keyboard and integrated trackpad comes in very handy when typing anything longer than a quick email to friends. Incredibly versatile, the tablets unveiled today can double as a smart display for managing your smart home devices, and one can even serve as a second screen for your PC via wireless connection.
This is all possible with Lenovo’s new smarter line of powerful, premium P-Series tablets, including the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro that’s revolutionizing personal ‘me-time’ along with the debut of our new wireless connectivity framework software, Project Unity, as well as our first Android tablet with dedicated 5G connectivity, the Lenovo Tab P11 5G. And for the ideal in-ear audio experience for either of these tablets, PC or smartphone, turn to our new Lenovo Smart Wireless Earbuds that pair instantly with up to two devices simultaneously via Bluetooth to enable great sound plus smart noise cancelling.

Lenovo Introduces the Powerful and Flexible ThinkEdge SE70 Edge AI Platform
The ThinkEdge SE70 is purpose-built to unlock the power of CV applications for enterprise. A version of the ThinkEdge SE70 will be offered with AWS Panorama Device SDK pre-installed, allowing enterprise customers to transform every-day IP cameras into ‘smart’ cameras that run CV apps at the edge. AWS Panorama enables tasks to be automated that have traditionally required human inspection to improve visibility into potential issues. For example, AWS Panorama can be used to track assets for optimizing operations in facilities and monitoring inventory levels on retail shelves–even in environments with limited internet bandwidth.
The new ThinkEdge AI-capable edge appliance is powered by NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX, a production ready, high-performance, small form factor, power-efficient system on module that is cloud-managed for enhanced security and ease of training and deploying a variety of AI and machine learning models to the edge. It delivers up to 21 trillion operations/second (TOPS) of accelerated compute, runs modern neural networks in parallel and processes data from multiple high-resolution sensors. Jetson Xavier NX leverages NVIDIA CUDA-X™, a comprehensive AI software stack with highly optimized, domain-specific libraries that reduces complexity and speeds time to market.
The rugged design of the ThinkEdge SE70 combined with powerful processing power and flexible configurations position the solution as critical infrastructure for smart networks supporting real-time decision making in new hybrid business models with advanced automation.
