The multi-touch and multi-user interface is backed by powerful hardware and interesting peripherals such as strickers, an e-dice and 4 joysticks. The Horizon big-sized tablet features Intel Core i7 processors, Nvidia GeForce graphic card and Dolby Home Theatre audio under a 27-inch screen. The specifications might seem a bit to much for a tablet but the IdeaCentre Horizon is more than just a tablet as it can easily be converted into a desktop PC thanks to the screen’s backlight and to an increased visibility from most angles.
Users will be able to easily download and install games from Lenovo’s own App Shop. The Shop currently offers over 5000 entertainment applications developed with multi-user capabilities. Furthermore the tablet will already come with a couple of pre-installed games and applications.
Lenovo’s Tablet group president explained: “Now many people can enjoy different photos, music and video on the same screen, and they can play games with our special accessories that blend physical and digital interaction”. And Lenovo means it. The company collaborated with Ubisoft, Electronic Arts and with other big game producers in order to make sure the tablet will allow people to play games as they were intended to be played.
