 16.01.2010   Lenovo Skylight, il primo smartbook basato su Snapdragon
 

Con il comunicato stampa di seguito allegato il system builder Lenovo ha annunciato Skylight (cfr. le foto seguenti), il primo smartbook al mondo basato sulla piattaforma Snapdragon di Qualcomm, utilizzata anche dal Nexus One di Google, che include un processore di tipo ARM.

In accordo al produttore, Skylight è un prodotto di tipo mobile che si colloca a metà strada tra un netbook e uno smartphone poichè con esso Lenovo punta ad abbinare le funzionalità avanzate del primo al consumo energetico del secondo, al fine di offrire agli utenti una device diversa da tutte le possibili alternative già presenti sul mercato.

Tra le feature dello smartbook di Lenovo segnaliamo la dotazione di una cpu operante a 1GHz e di un drive a stato solido, o SSD, da 20GB; il display ha una dimensione di 10.1-inch ed è ottimizzato per la visualizzazione dei filmati in High Definition (HD). La connettività di rete o con altre device è assicurata dal supporto delle tecnologie Wi-Fi, 3G e Bluetooth.

Il Sistema Operativo preinstallato è rappresentato da una distribuzione Linux altamente custom, che risulta essere ottimizzata per il Web Surfing e rende disponibili un considerevole numero di web gadget predefiniti che semplificano e velocizzano l'accesso ad alcuni dei più noti servizi on line, come Google Gmail, Facebook e YouTube.

Lo smartbook Skylight di Lenovo sarà disponibile negli Stati Uniti a partire dal prossimo mese di Aprile, accompagnato da un MSRP pari a $499, mentre arriverà nei mercati cinese ed europeo entro la fine dell'anno corrente.

"Lenovo is leading the way for innovation in this space by utilizing the groundbreaking capabilities of our Snapdragon platform. We are excited for consumers to enjoy the new mobile experiences, such as extended battery life and increased connectivity that the Skylight will deliver."
