An interesting product for telework ?
Given that software can already use tablets as a second screen, it is possible that Lenovo has put forward the fact that thanks to the HDMI link, the experience will be more fluid on his product.
But for the moment, as this information does not originate from an official source, these are still to be considered with caution. And XDA said that it is possible that the documents that he has relayed concern a concept that has not yet been validated, and therefore could not be launched. In any case, a product such as the one described by this rumor may well be of interest to teleworkers who can work from anywhere, and who need a second screen to be easy to carry.
Otherwise, as a reminder, we recently published an article indicating a significant increase in PC sales during the second quarter of 2020 due to the teleworking and distance education.
