Lenovo "Horizon" wins award at Las Vegas consumer electronics show
LAS VEGAS, United States, Jan 10, 2013 (Xinhua via COMTEX) --
A half-PC and
half-tablet product by China's PC manufacturing giant Lenovo on
Thursday won the "Best of CES" Award for PC and Tablets products
at the 2013 International CES, the world's largest consumer
electronics trade show.
Horizon is a Windows 8-based 27-inch PC. On top of Microsoft's
new operating system, Lenovo has added its own multi-user
interface called Aura.
CNET, the world's famous consumer products news and reviews
brand, said that "Lenovo's Horizon 27 takes coffee-table computing
to a new level."
Lenovo wants customers to think of the 27-inch multi-touch
Horizon not so much as a semi-portable desktop, but instead as a
multi-user device. Most of Horizon's programs on display at the
show are games, such as air hockey, a four-player shooting game.
"In the past, only hardware and speed matter for the Internet
handset devices... But today, hardware, software and applications
all must work together, and it is essential to create a great user
experience," Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing told a products news release
conference earlier on Tuesday.
More than 600 Chinese companies, including major brands like
Haier, Hisense, Huawei and Lenovo, came with growing presence at
the Las Vegas show.
