Lenovo mixes smartphone features into its all-day Miix 630

Lenovo's first Snapdragon Windows device Miix 630 comes with a detachable keyboard and digital pen

Lenovo has unveiled at CES its first convertible laptop in Microsoft's new range of "always-on" Windows computers with LTE mobile connectivity.

Lenovo says the Miix 620 2-in-1 will be going on sale in March or April in select markets.

Lenovo will be offering the Miix 630 with digital stylus and detachable keyboard for about $800 and will be available some time in the 2nd half of this year. No word yet on whether or not the device will be making its way to India anytime soon. The detachable keyboard can serve as a screen protector when you're on the go.

Treasury sanctions two 'key leaders of North Korea's unlawful weapons program'
Ri Pyong-chol and Kim Jong-sik were named as leaders of the country's missile program in a Treasury Department announcement. Former assistant defense secretary Andrew Weber warned about how unsafe the weapons could be if developed by Kim Jong-un.

The Lenovo Miix 630 will now be available in two different options; one will have 4GB RAM while a more premium 8GB RAM variant will also be present.

The 12.3" touch display covered with Corning Glass features the same WUXGA+ (1920 x 1280) resolution as the Envy 2x and both laptops deliver the same estimated battery life of 20 hours (video playback) from a similar battery capacity: "48Wh for the Miix 630 and 49Wh for the HP device. Lastly, the left flank features another speaker grille, an SD card slot, a nano SIM slot, and what looks like a 3.5mm headset jack. Graphics processing is taken care of by the chip's integrated Adreno 540 GPU clocked at 710 MHz.

It features a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with support for Windows Hello. However, when using the built-in LTE modem and performing regular tasks, that number is expected to come down significantly.

The Miix 630 comes with Windows 10 S, much like those from HP and ASUS, and this is the cut-back version of the OS that limits the types of apps that can be used, mostly for security.

It is hard to know how the Miix 630 really compares in terms of thickness as we only know that the height with the keyboard is 15.6mm (0.6") while HP provided the measurement without the keyboard: "6.9 mm.
