favored by these users. There is also a new model from the P-series for

smartphone functions at an affordable price for new users and the
budget-conscious. The entire portfolio features dual-SIM slots, larger, higher
resolution displays and enhanced specifications.

“For smartphone users, one size does not fit all,” commented Liu Jun,
president MIDH and senior vice president Lenovo Group, “We’ve learned from our
customers, and we know they have many different, unique reasons for selecting
Lenovo smartphones. Our new portfolio, features devices designed to please and
amaze a wide range of customers globally, with a phone for every user.”

S890, Optimized for Entertainment

Young consumers of the “digital native” generation have high demands for their
digital products. Not only do devices need to offer the latest technology and
strong performance, but they must look good as well. The S890 excels on all
these fronts. The phone sports a 5-inch 960x540 qHD screen, for crisper images
and more viewing area to share videos and hi-definition photos with friends.
An 8MP auto-flash camera, complemented by Lenovo super camera software, takes
photos in low light and allows photo in video and complex photo-editing. All
of these functions are packed into a super-slim (9.3mm, .36-inch) and
lightweight (176g, 6.2 ounces) package, sporting a uniquely elegant “loop”
design that makes the product feel thinner and sexier.

S720, Multimedia Workhorse

Young urbanites are constantly using their smartphones to view, edit and share
multimedia content and the IdeaPhone S720 is tailor-made for these consumers.
In addition to key multimedia enhancements like built-in Dolby Digital Plus
and Super Camera software, the S720 optimizes the value of its configuration
with a dual-core MTK CPU for enhanced performance and a 2000mAh battery to
ensure the phone can easily handle greater power demands. The 4.5-inch 960x540
IPS display ensures that photos taken with the 8MP front camera or the 1MP
rear camera can be viewed easily from wider angles, while dual SIM
functionality provides easy switching from home to office networks for
sharing. All of this is packed into a slim, 9.9mm (.39-inch) package with a
unique “Loop” design, and comes in three color options so you will always look
stylish while enjoying a full multimedia experience.

P770, Professional Business Device

Businesspeople demand more from their smartphones: more talk time, more
security, more reliability and more options. The IdeaPhone P770 is a perfect
complement for today’s always-connected, frequently traveling global
executive. Sporting a 3500mAh battery with enhanced power management software,
the P770 delivers up to 30 hours talk time between charges, while a unique,
“genuine battery detection” function ensures P770 users get the most from
their phone. In fact, with USB on-the-go, the P770 can even serve as a charger
for other devices, while easily sharing files and data secured by native
anti-virus software. Dual SIM capabilities allow you to move seamlessly across
networks wherever your job may take you.

A800, All-Round Entry-Level Smartphone

The A800 strikes a strong balance between performance and price, granting
users access to a range of specs that have normally been reserved for much
more expensive phones. With a dual core, 1.2GHz CPU and dual SIM slots for
switching between data plans on the go, the A800 is a solid performer for work
and play. A 4.5-inch FWVGA display, accompanied by a 2000mAh battery, ensures
the A800’s performance stands up for photo sharing, games and web-browsing.
Best of all, the A800 offers all of this in an affordable package, making it
an ideal choice for first-time smartphone users or those seeking an all-round
performer on a budget.

A690, Balance and Value

The IdeaPhoneA690 challenges preconceptions about what can be offered with an
entry-level smartphone. The phone is the first in its class to break the 1GHz
barrier, offering speed and responsiveness previously unheard of for the most
affordable phones. With a 4.0-inch 800X480 WVGA screen, which also surpasses
the competition, the A690 delivers an enhanced viewing experience with sharper
resolution. The ergonomically designed A690 feels great in the hand and also
offers dual SIM capability so users can select the most cost-effective data
plan for their changing needs.

The newest phones from the IdeaPhone portfolio will be available in China and
select regional markets beginning January. Pricing for models varies according
to market and model.
