Lenovo is not a household name in these parts. By the gods of mobile, I think that I only hear the name during CES or MWC. Or during smartphone marketshare announcements or something like that. That is not a problem. I have never seen or held a Lenovo phone before. But how is that a problem to me or to anyone else? Search me. Still, they make mobiles, and that is usually all that I care about, you know.
Lenovo is present at the ongoing CES in the US and announcing some great mobiles though. At least the specifications are impressive. They have a phablet that’s getting good attention, and then they have their IdeaPhone range. You know, like Samsung has Galaxy and LG has Optimus and Nokia has Lumia. You read that right: IdeaPhone.
Sometimes you just wonder who is behind these branding/naming schemes. IdeaPhone? No idea! Or it might just be me.
In the meantime, I love the blue variant of the Lenovo IdeaPhone S890 (pictured above). It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and has a 5″ qHD (540 x 960 pixel) display and there’s an 8MP camera with flash in the kitty too.
