Lenovo open to making a HoloLens competitor

Agam Shah | Jan. 11, 2016
Lenovo is closely monitoring the virtual and augmented reality markets, CTO Peter Hortensius says.

Some companies offer an entire range of products -- PCs to monitors -- for gamers, but Lenovo doesn't have a gaming tablet. When questioned on whether Lenovo company would introduce one, Hortensius said a gaming tablet "makes sense. We'll see over time."

Products shown by Lenovo at CES include the innovative ThinkPad X1 Tablet, which can be customized to fit individual needs. Customers can add or remove features by snapping on modules at the bottom of the device. Right now Lenovo offers projector, battery and media modules, and new ones could be added if there's customer demand, Hortensius said.

Lenovo also was the first vendor at CES this week to announce a hybrid with an OLED screen -- its ThinkPad X1 Yoga.

Hortensius said the company will continue to add new features to computing devices. One heavily talked about feature is wireless charging, but he said that could take a while to reach PCs.
