Lenovo is making its first public appearance in the region at today’s Gitex. The company, which acquired IBM’s PC division for a massive US$1.75 billion in May, now claims to be the third-largest computer firm in the world. And it’s certainly showing its muscle today, as it wows the crowds with its latest wave of new launches. Among the plethora of products on the vendor’s stand is its ThinkPad X41 Tablet, which Lenovo says creates a whole new alternative in tablet computing without compromising either weight or functionality. “This year’s show is going to be one to remember,” says Imtiaz Ghani, regional manager, Lenovo Middle East, Egypt and Pakistan. “Anyone who wants to know anything about Lenovo, its products and how we plan to bring new competition to the region’s PC market will be able to do so at Gitex this week,” he adds. Located in hall three, visitors to the Lenovo stand can learn how the enlarged computer company aims to combine the strengths of IBM and Lenovo. The team is telling delegates how it intends to meld the heritage of IBM with its own manufacturing efficiency and market reach. Visitors to the product-filled stand can also check out demonstrations of the firm’s ThinkVantage technologies for wireless, security, data protection and PC management, most of which are available in the firm’s ThinkPad notebooks and its ThinkCentre desktops.
