Dialog Hub, a distributor associated with Liquipel Asia, held the grand opening of its first boutique store in SS15 Subang Jaya today. The store will specialise in providing customers with the Liquipel nano-coating service. Pre-coated devices are also available for sale at the store, in case consumers do not feel like surrendering their phones for a couple of days.
Lenovo has unveiled two All-in-One computers for the Malaysian market. The Intel Core i3 powered C470 and the Android-based N300. The N300 marks the first time Lenovo has introduced an Android powered AiO, although other manufacturers have already experimented with the combination of the two.
Three notebooks from Lenovo are now available in Malaysia. These are the Y50-70, Z50-70, and Flex 2; which are aimed at different consumers. The Z50 is optimised for multimedia entertainment and features a full 1080p HD display with optional graphics card, while the Y50 is best used by gamers with its UHD screen and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M graphics card. The Lenovo Flex 2 continues to build on the folding form factor introduced by the original Lenovo Yoga, although it doesn’t quite go all the way into tablet mode.
