Lenovo to make Surface rival
Lifestyle News | Posted Thursday, 16th Aug
The tablet device market is starting to heat up and tech firm Lenovo is the latest company to join the race.
As ever, Apple was the first to test the water with the launch of the iPad, while the iPad 2 is the clear market leader.
However, Microsoft is expected to give the Californian giant a run for its money with the forthcoming launch of the Surface.
And now Lenovo is looking to take its share of the market with a device that will be seen as direct competition by Microsoft.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the new Lenovo device, like its Microsoft competitor, boasts a flip-out keyboard - something which is seen as the key advantage over the iPad series.
While pricing information has not yet been released, new iPads cost around £400 and it is a safe bet that any new devices will carry similar price tags.
As such, potential buyers could be tempted to take out an unsecured cash loan to make sure they can have the latest gadget without disrupting their monthly budgeting.
