Computer maker Lenovo is better known for its desktops and notebook computers than it is for tablets and smartphones, but it is using this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) convention to change that with the debut of three handsets, a tablet and a suite of DOit apps designed to help people simplify their digital lives by allowing them to share, sync, protect and manage information on their mobile devices. The Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ offers a multimode experience with features including a Full HD screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a high-resolution rear camera and the DOit apps suite. The tablet's Smart Display automatically adjusts the image qualities on the screen to ambient light, while 18 hours of battery life and its three modes of use provide longevity and versatility. The S660 smartphone is a compact, 4.7-inch handset powered by a MediaTek quad-core processor; the S850 is a slim and ultralight device with responsive quad-core processing and a 5-inch display with an ultra-wide viewing angle, and the S860 boasts a huge 5.3-inch display and a brushed metal exterior.
