Lenovo community, we need your help. We're here in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress and our Lenovo Tablets have gotten themselves lost. They’re lonely, tired and have run out of battery. (Yes, it's been more than 18 hours so even the Yoga Tablet has given up.) Can you help us find and rescue them? They’ve managed to leave a few clues as to their location but it’s all very cryptic so we need your quick wit. From Tuesday to Thursday (February 25-27), we will reveal three clues per day hinting at where the tablets are hidden. The locations will be different each day as they disappeared in three different places. By the end of Thursday, you'll need to guess the 3 locations. Please help us before those tablets are done in by rain. (Or, worse yet, cats.) To join the game on Twitter, reply @Lenovo with the 3 locations and hashtag it #LenovoMWC To join on Instagram, comment @Lenovo with the 3 locations on any of our posts on Thursday and use the same hashtag #LenovoMWC Your heroics will not go unrewarded. Five super-smart sleuths, whom we’ll select from those who got all three locations correct, will be commended for their efforts and awarded a tablet of their own. (Don’t lose yours.) Keep your eyes peeled this Friday, February 28, as we will announce the lucky winners on Twitter and Instagram. Now let’s go find those tablets....

Relive the Experience below However, due to some technical faults, the Hangout prematurely ended and we know that there were a few questions which could not be answered in time. Well fret not, here are the answers! ANSWER: We’ve done a lot of user research about how to improve our keyboard and two trends stood out: Users wanted a simpler keyboard but still wanted all the functionality they were used to. This is why we developed the Adaptive Keyboard. By combining 40 shortcuts in a dynamically changing row, it brings the most pertinent shortcuts for the application to the forefront without taking away functionality. ANSWER: Yes, there will be an update to allow you to assign your own apps to the 4 rows. ANSWER: Absolutely. X1 Carbon is all about pushing boundaries and the newest generation is no exception. Everyone interacts with their devices differently and the we understand this. By having different interactive features, we allow users to personalize their experience in whatever way they work and play best. ANSWER: In addition to the new user interactive features like the Adaptive Keyboard, voice and gesture control, we also have improved basic...
