Tablets are indispensable for both work and play delivering endless ways to enjoy entertainment and get more done at home and on the go. The world needs a healthy escape now more than ever ergo consumers are spending more time streaming everything from shows and movies to games. According to research, Millennial parents are more likely to provide their kids with their own tablet than their own TVs1, continuing the pattern of young digital natives learning and engaging through streaming on YouTube™ and other social platforms over cable.
The new normal has also led to an uptick in consumers creating their own digital content, and as any rambling creative who’s ever tried to write lyrics, post to their blog or submit an online review from their tablet’s touchscreen will attest – a physical keyboard and integrated trackpad comes in very handy when typing anything longer than a quick email to friends. Incredibly versatile, the tablets unveiled today can double as a smart display for managing your smart home devices2, and one can even serve as a second screen for your PC via wireless connection.
This is all possible with Lenovo™’s new smarter line of powerful, premium P-Series tablets, including the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro that’s revolutionizing personal ‘me-time’ along with the debut of our new wireless connectivity framework software, Project Unity3, as well as our first Android™ tablet with dedicated 5G connectivity4, the Lenovo Tab P11 5G. And for the ideal in-ear audio experience for either of these tablets, PC or smartphone, turn to our new Lenovo Smart Wireless Earbuds that pair instantly with up to two devices simultaneously via Bluetooth® to enable great sound plus smart noise cancelling.

So Happy Together – Project Unity3
The average consumer is juggling more devices than ever, each operating independently from one another and generally with their own preferred use cases. However, Lenovo envisions a world where connectivity and collaboration are seamless and the software that powers those devices is the key to unlocking a universe of hidden value. Case in point is Lenovo’s new wireless connectivity framework that we’ve dubbed Project Unity. Initially launching in conjunction with the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro, the Project Unity application effectively transforms the device into a smart companion for your Windows 10 or 11 Lenovo PC. This completely wireless experience allows you to easily pair the two devices with a simple pin input and seamlessly extend your desktop to the tablet for additional display real estate or mirror it when needed.
However, the tablet doesn’t just serve as a mere display screen. It is fully functional which means your PC’s Windows programs and the tablet’s Android apps can run simultaneously side by side without compromise, providing the ultimate multi-tasking experience. With Project Unity, you can use your PC for a video call while taking advantage of your tablet’s touch screen to draw and share pictures on the call’s virtual whiteboard. Present a PowerPoint on your PC and have access to the speaker notes on your tablet or prepare a document on your PC while referencing another from your desktop on the tablet. But wait! Want to pull up a movie on your favorite streaming platform while you work? No problem, just open up that Android app, minimize the window and position it where you want it on the screen while still having access to the Windows desktop documents you were working on.
Ultimately, Project Unity enables you to create a unified experience across devices, taking full advantage of their unique features. However, that’s only the beginning of Project Unity’s breadth, with more device connectivity, management and data storage features planned in the coming months.
