BARCELONA -- February 24, 2013

Lenovo (HKSE: 0992) (PINK SHEETS: LNVGY) today announced a line-up of new
Android tablets, offering configurations and form factors to match consumer
needs for both ultra-portable tablets and multimedia performers. The
portfolio, which also boasts unique connectivity features, will be available
starting in the second quarter 2013.

The range starts with two new A-series tablets, seven-inch devices, designed
for optimal mobility while still packing a performance punch. The A1000 is
ideal for first-time tablet buyers and features enhanced audio, while the
A3000 offers quad-core processing for speedy performance whether for gaming or
web-browsing. Alongside these models, Lenovo also announced the new 10-inch
S6000, which offers extended I/O options, a large, vibrant screen and a
super-slim profile that looks sophisticated and elegant, whether the user is
web-surfing in the coffee shop or enjoying movies and games at home.

“Lenovo’s latest Android tablet family is designed to meet the demands of a
wide range of customers, particularly young, active users who are always on
the go, and have adopted the seven-inch form factor as their own. With these
latest additions to our tablet portfolio, we’ve created devices that address
these customers’ needs, as well as devices for more demanding gamers and
multimedia users,” said Chen Wenhui, vice president Lenovo and GM Mobile BU,
“We believe that our Android family of tablets will appeal to customers across
the world as we’ve built our products to be highly accessible and flexible to
serve multiple needs and budgets.”

S6000, Mobile “Home Entertainment” Center

As tablets have continued their march into the mainstream, increasing demands
with regards to larger screen devices have raised the bar for tablet makers.
Lenovo has responded with the S6000, a sleek and powerful option for customers
looking for a device that switches seamlessly from entertainment to social
media and beyond. Powered by the MTK 8389/8125 1.2 GHz quad-core processor,
the S6000 shines as a multimedia and gaming tablet fronted by a 10.1-inch IPS
1280X800 display with a wide, 178-degree viewing angle, micro HDMI port and
digital microphone. The S6000 also offers a number of additions to optimize
its performance as a connectivity tool for social networkers including
optional HSPA+ and a substantial battery that allows for more than 8 hours of
continuous WiFi web browsing. Even with these specifications though, the S6000
does not lose track of style and convenience; it is all tied together in a
super slim (8.6mm) and light (560g) frame that feels good and helps users look

A3000, Full Performance in a Compact Package

In today’s connected world, devices must be mobile, without skimping on
performance. The A3000 bristles with specifications typically found in a much
larger device, all packed into a seven-inch form factor that is thin and
light. Powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core, MTK processor, the A3000 optimizes the
user experience for games, video, photo-sharing and web-browsing, offering
seamlessly fluid navigation and highly responsive performance. The benefits of
the seven-inch form factor are not ignored on the A3000 either. The tablet,
which sports an IPS 1024x600 screen, weighs in at less than 340g and is only
11mm thick, but can still hold a wealth of content with an extensive memory,
which can be extended to 64GB with the external micro-SD card. Optional 3G
HSPA+ support ensures users stay connected on the go with Lenovo’s
ultra-portable tablet.

A1000, Pocket Studio with Dolby^®

The A1000 delivers an audio experience normally reserved for more expensive
tablets in a seven-inch device. With Dolby Digital Plus integrated into the
device and large, front-facing speakers that ensure the sound is directed at
the users’ ears rather than the floor, the A1000 is perfect for music lovers
and those seeking a “pocket studio” for either music or movies. The A1000 runs
Android Jelly Bean 4.1 on a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and has on-board
storage of up to 16GB, extendable to 32GB with a micro-SD slot, so users can
load content up and take it to the gym, the office or anywhere else they want
to experience high-quality sights and sounds. It also comes in either black or
white, allowing users to customize their Lenovo pocket studio to their

Lenovo Mobile Access

All the new Android tablets come with Lenovo Mobile Access, a unique service
that allows users to connect instantly “out of the box”. When customers first
power up their Lenovo device, they will see an icon indicating Lenovo as their
access provider. Without having to set up a special data plan, they can
immediately start browsing web pages, accessing their email and sharing
content with friends using HSPA+ 3G access or through WiFi according to their
specific configuration. When the initial Lenovo Mobile Access service expires
users will be prompted with the option to easily renew their plan or select an
alternative service.

Pricing and Availability^1

The newest Android tablets will be available worldwide from Q2, 2013. Although
pricing varies according to market, configuration and model, each tablet in
the range is competitively priced to ensure maximum accessibility to a premium
user experience for all customers.
