Lenovo Tab P11: The tablet for the entire family

Latest tablet tech without costing a fortune

Published

on

Living well during this new at-home normal takes relying on our technology more for fun, learning and light productivity. It can be challenging enough these days without worrying about sharing technology that’s hard for some family members to use. In comes the Lenovo Tab P11 — it’s the happy medium between giving your family access to the latest tech they need, without costing a fortune or sacrificing the experience you want from a sleek and powerful tablet.

The Lenovo Tab P11 helps you get more stuff done with smarter features and pen support —  making your day better when seeking news, social connections, and hours of entertainment with more pixels.

It offers an 11-inch high-definition 2K (2000 x 1200) touchscreen IPS liquid crystal display (LCD) that’s larger and brighter too at 400 nits. With integrated Eye Care mode technology certified by TÜV Rheinland, the display also helps lower harmful blue light to reduce eye strain.

The exterior of the Lenovo Tab P11 looks as sharp as its clear display, styled with a contemporary dual-tone finish in either Slate Grey or Platinum Grey hue with a sturdy aluminum-alloy chassis for a sleeker profile.

Powered by the efficient Snapdragon 662 Mobile Platform with advanced LTE, integrated Qualcomm FastConnect subsystem and packed with up to 6GB RAM for speedy browsing, the Lenovo Tab P11 is also one of just a handful of tablets certified to stream Netflix shows in HD (high definition).

Listen to your favorite tunes from anywhere in the home for up to 15 hours of usage at full charge, as you endlessly auto-switch between the familiar interface of preloaded Microsoft Office apps (e.g., Microsoft Word, Excel, OneNote and PowerPoint) and the popular productivity apps from Google Play.

The family-friendly Lenovo Tab P11 also comes with Kids Space from Google, a new kids mode that features apps, books, and videos to help kids under nine years of age learn and have fun  (while the adults finish online work meetings in the other room).

For catching up with friends or while learning remotely, you’ll love the ease of hands-free login and first-class video calling via the 8MP front camera. Don’t want your mom commenting on your messy living room during your weekend video chats? Just use the Smart Privacy feature to blur your background. Play music and videos in high fidelity with immersive sound powered by quad speakers and with Dolby Atmos for great sounding audio in landscape or portrait mode.

The Lenovo Tab P11 is great for getting more done at home with the optional, ultra-thin Keyboard Pack with built-in trackpad that just snaps into place when you need to fire off an email before lunch. The magnetic stand cover and integrated kickstand prop up the tablet to resemble a slim detachable.

The intuitive Lenovo Precision Pen 2 is capable of sensing tilt and your subtle pressure adjustments for a smoother digital writing and doodling experience. With a long battery life up to 200 hours with a battery capacity of 60mAh, and USB Type-C plug for charging, this optional pen stands ready for when inspiration strikes.

This affordable Android tablet supports other must-have optional accessories built for the new normal too, including the handy Lenovo Smart Charging Station 2 that enables hands-free movie watching and stable charging while docked, and a new Folio Case outfitted in a modern fabric to provide extra protection for when you toss it in your tote bag and go.

Pricing and availability

The Lenovo Tab P11 will start at US$ 229.99 and is available now.

Huawei MatePad T 10: A Family’s GadgetMatch

Built for different needs

Published

on

Gadgets, for the most part, take away the family quality time. We’re glued to smartphones, laptops, and TVs that we forget to bond with the people close to us.

Technology may have been in the way of our relationships, but we can use it to bring the connection back. With the right device, we can strengthen the bond inside our homes.

This Holiday season, take the opportunity to stay closer using the Huawei MatePad T 10.

GadgetMatch for the Family: Spending quality time together

The MatePad T 10 can help a family strengthen their bonds by spending quality time together. With an entrancing 9.7-inch HD display, families can share the tablet when watching movies or TV shows.

Its vibrant display delivers a stunning visual experience, augmented by Huawei’s proprietary ClariVu Display Enhancement Technology — which boosts image and video quality, upping detail, contrast, and more.

Coupled with Huawei’s Histen 6.1 software, families can enjoy a surround sound experience. Truly, it’s a theatrical audio-visual treat for the whole family.

GadgetMatch for Moms: Working from home

For busy parents, sometimes work doesn’t stop during the Holidays. With a smart tablet like the MatePad T 10, parents can work at the comforts of their own home while bonding with their families.

The MatePad T 10 — even with an affordable price tag — also carries Huawei’s top smart features evident on their premium lineup. Work seamlessly by using Huawei Share and Multi-Screen Collaboration, where you can transfer files easily between your smartphone and tablet.

Both devices can also be used simultaneously, so you can work remotely, without being tied to a desk. For video conferencing needs, the MatePad T 10 has a noise reduction feature so you don’t have to worry if kids are being rowdy.

GadgetMatch for Dads: Helping the kids learn from home

Holidays can also be a time for learning. Stay-at-home parents can help kids utilize MatePad T 10’s versatility.

Make learning easier when you use certain features such as eBook Mode and Eye Comfort Mode which delivers a pleasing reading experience.

The tablet intelligently adjusts the brightness and contrast, filters blue light through a certified TÜV Rheinland panel, and send health-related alerts to ensure you have a healthy experience.

It’s also lightweight which makes it easy to hold. No more worrying about strained arms caused by similar yet heavy devices!

GadgetMatch for the Older Siblings: Spreading the holiday cheer

Leave it to the older siblings to be the DJ and play some holiday tunes. With the MatePad T 10’s quad-channel speaker system engineered by Harman Kardon, you can revel in an immersive sound enveloping the spaces.

Even though the built-in speakers are loud enough to fill a room, there’s a headphone jack in case you want to connect the tablet to a bigger speaker system.

It also has a 7250mAh battery, which lets you play holiday tunes on loop for hours. Powered by Kirin 710A and EMUI’s power-saving technology, the MatePad T 10 can even last longer!

Have a ball whenever Mariah Carey graces any Spotify playlist. If you’re not into Spotify, AppGallery and Petal Search Widget makes it easy to find the apps you might want to install.

GadgetMatch for the Kids: Create and play to heart’s content

Kids don’t have to keep on learning and watching videos all day! The MatePad T 10 supports Huawei’s M-Pencil (with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity), so anyone can write and draw accurately on the tablet.

Moreover, the tablet sports a powerful chipset and a custom Mali-G52 GPU supporting GPU Turbo 3.0, so kids can effortlessly switch between apps and play graphics-intensives games. Even better if it’s an educational game!

There’s also a dedicated Kids Corner, helping parents to create a safe, manageable space for children. Several features can help deliver a secure experience. For instance, the tablet creates an alert whenever the kid’s face is too close to the screen. Parents can also tailor the experience to make sure kids access only the apps that are suitable to their age.

Huawei’s Christmas Treat

The Huawei MatePad and MatePad T 10 retail for Php 20,990 and PhP 6,999 respectively. Purchasing the MatePad comes with freebies up to PhP 1,378 such as a Free Huawei MatePad Cover and 15GB Huawei Cloud storage for 12 months. Meanwhile, the MatePad T 10 comes with 15GB Huawei Cloud Storage, too.

Moreover, the MatePad Family comes with special gifts perfect for Christmas. Starting November 27, the MatePad T8 comes with a free Moon Night Light while the MatePad Pro comes with a free Entertainment Gift Box.
