BREAKING NEWS! Lenovo Group partners with Chinavasion in launch of highly anticipated Lenovo LePhone. Q1 2010 - After Lenovo LePhone becomes the best selling Android phone in China, Lenovo looks to expand sales outside China. Now after months of exhaustive search for someone with the experience and expertise to market Chinese cellphones to the world, Lenovo selects online leader Chinavasion as its exclusive marketing partner! Therefore, we at Chinavasion are proud to introduce The Lenovo LePhone. In every way an outstanding unlocked Android smartphone: state of the art hardware, winning style, and superior software for the perfect balance of price and performance!

State of the Art Hardware: At the heart of this unlocked Android phone is the Qualcomm 8250 1.0GHz CPU aptly nicknamed "Snapdragon" due to its awesome speed and performance prowess. It's the exact same chip used in the HTC Desire and Google Nexus One. The Lenovo LePhone also comes with 512MB of mobile DDR RAM memory and offers voice and data connectivity through WCDMA/HSPA 3G (850/1900/2100 MHz), quadband GSM (850/900/1800/1900), and WIFI. The Lenovo LePhone also sports a 3MP autofocus still and video camera and even comes with a genuine SanDisk 8GB SDHC microSD card filled with hundreds of free Android apps!

Winning Style: In every way elegant, in every aspect luxurious, the Lenovo LePhone's attractive candybar form factor combines the best qualities of the iPhone4 (solid feel), the HTC Desire (well-placed controls), and the Samsung Galaxy S (big bright screen). In fact, The Lenovo LePhone sports a super bright 3.7 inch capacitive touchscreen that employs AMOLED technology for better picture quality whether you're playing popular games like Angry Birds and Robo Defense or simply enjoying high definition movies in all the popular video formats (RMVB, RM, 3GP, MP4, RV, AVI, WMV, ASF, MPG, MOV, FLV, F4V, and M4V).

Superior Software: But before you fall in love with all its multimedia functionality, let's not forget that the Lenovo LePhone is first and foremost an Android phone meaning its operating system is built on the Google Android core. The benefits of using such an operating system? It's like having a supercomputer in your hands. iPhone lovers will say that Apple phones are much better than Android phones, but if your work and personal life revolve around Google and its services like Google search, Gmail, and Google Maps then Android phones are the way to go. The Lenovo LePhone is one of the best Android phones available in terms of performance and the best Android phone on the market based on price. It comes with native Android Marketplace functionality which allows you to download hundreds of thousands of financial, health, and productivity apps not to mention games, ebooks, and multimedia.

The Lenovo LePhone. Outclassing the competition with state of the art hardware, winning style, and superior software for the perfect balance between price and performance! Brought to you by Lenovo and its online marketing and delivery partner, Chinavasion.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

  • I've heard of Lenovo before. Didn't they used to be IBM?
    Lenovo was the result of Legend Holdings, then China's biggest PC maker purchasing IBM's PC division. In the early 2000's, Lenovo started making cellphones and today they are currently China's best selling brand.
  • I like the LePhone but I'm thinking about an iPhone. What should I do?
    Android phones are better than iPhones. Here's a little example. The simple process of moving MP3 files to your phone becomes a tremendous chore with an iPhone. First you must load up iTunes, then sync, then indicate which songs you want to add......with Android phones you're already finished and listening to your music. And the LePhone is one of the best Android phones around.
  • The LePhone has a "9Pin POGO Pin", what is that?
    Only the latest and most advanced way of connecting custom Lenovo accessories and peripherals, like game controllers, external keyboards, docking stations, speakers, etc. It's also used for charging the LePhone battery and data transfers.
  • I've read online that the Lenovo LePhone does not have the Android Market and many other Google apps... is this true?
    It was for the original LePhone, but the upgrade Chinavasion version has been completely customized and optimized for the Western market... meaning our LePhone includes the Google Android Marketplace, Gmail, Google Maps, and many more essential apps!
  • How do I order these so called "external keyboards" and other accessories for the LePhone?
    If you plan on ordering in bulk (300+ total accessories), you can contact our CS team directly. Otherwise, keep an eye on our new products page.
  • I'm having trouble logging into my Google account. It tells me I can't do it without a keypad.
    Please exit back to the main screen using the swipe bar, then go back into the Gmail app to sync your Google account and it will work fine.

buy any with new os

i have a lenovo lephone and i would buy 1 next time but i wan't know if it possible with the new os.

very good

I love this phone I got mine four weeks ago. I upgraded to android 2.3 it runs very smoothly the music and video apps are wonderful the only thing is the lack of customer support from lenovo I live in USA and the reps from lenovo here didn't even know they sold a cellphone. If you need support with this phone your best bet is android forums.

Got it - use it - amazing... am satisfied 很滿意

a lot of accessories (maybe you need a car-cigaretteplug-usb-charger like [CVRL-G270] and [CVMH-K72] look at chinavasion)
maybe CV can offer it as a bundle ? and the lenovo housing with keyboard would be nice too.
It's very quick; super display but in the bright sun, sound is good, camera is not so good but usable (need good light)
some is in my language some in english and sometimes there are chinese Words...
I hope soon we get android 2.2 and maybe in december 2.3 update (and full english/german)
connects to linux win, as memory drivers are available at lenovomobile (slow server from here) http://www.lenovomobile.com/itemdetail/support/A29/A2900000626_driver.htm http://www.lenovomobile.com/downLoad/PC/PC115.rar
the Win software driver and PC-suite from http://www.pandaapp.com/pandahome/android/ for contacts music apps ....
(but with wlan you dont need it realy urgent ) for developers install eclipse and android-plug-in http://developer.android.com/index.html -- lenovo has the right SDK for Lephone but the original sdk do it also.

conclusio: so much performance for the money compared with the competitors.
my colleagues envy me for it! hehe ... hohoho maybe a good Xmas-gift

impressed with my lephone

Just received my lephone. In South Africa. First look and feel of the phone was great. As an advanced user I managed to get 3G up and running quickly. Like the simple setup options. Must admit this is my first android phone. Used to Windows mobile and symbian systems. Plugged phone into PC via usb. Was expecting Windows XP SP3 to pick up the phone. No such luck. Even with Internet searching enabled could not find drivers for Lenovo 3gw100 device?
Setup phone in USB storage mode. Detects USB Drive no Problem. Overall I am still impressed with my lephone.

One of the best website dedicated to cell phones.

Visit this website you will find the bestcell phonesin the world.
