When Lenovo abandons products

by Volker Weber


1.5 years ago I got one of the first Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro tablets. And I loved it. There were some kinks in the software but those teething problems were resolved with a couple of updates.

And in March 2016 it received its last Android security update. As of today the tablet runs on Android 5.1 with a 2006-03-01 security patch level. This was a $500 "Pro" product.

I want you to keep that in mind before you buy any Android product from Lenovo. I also have a Yoga Tab 3 with Windows. That runs on the very latest Windows Cumulative Update.


Laut offiziellen Infos erhalten zumindest die günstigen Phones auch keine regelmäßigen Updates.

Billig, nicht günstig. Das ist das Android-Problem. Ohne Marge keine Investition. Ode wie hier, ohne Umsatz.

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
