Lenovo P780 emerges in China, promoted by NBA star Kobe Bryant
As Lenovo’s Intel powered Ideaphone K900 is set to go on sale in China on May 6th, another device has made an appearance at a Lenovo event, the P780.

This device, all but certain to be a follow-up to the Lenovo P770, and will only be available in China has the distinction of getting some star appeal by NBA basketball player Kobe Bryant who has been promoting the Lenovo brand in China.

The P780 has apparently not been officially announced yet, and detailed specifications are not forthcoming, but it has a 5-inch display which will feature super-sensitive touch capability, like the Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820.

The Lenovo P780 is also about 9.9 centimeters thick, while it does not set any records for being svelte, it is packing a super-sized 4,000mAh battery to keep the lights on. We have been able to see some nice looking hardware from Lenovo, unfortunately we have not seen any of these new smartphones work their way west.

His Team got "Swept" in the Playoffs... Yeah, he's got time too be available.

It's not like he was playing any way. He's been injured for weeks now & wasn't gonna be able to return even if his team made it further in the playoffs.

A great excuse to sit out and watch the inevitable. The lakers barely made it to the playoffs. His "team" (if thats what u want to call it) didnt stand a chance

They definitely didn't stand a chance, but if you're suggesting that a guy who has played through so many injuries in his career is faking an achilles tendon tear to sit out, you're an idiot.

hes definately not faking it, im just pointing out that it was perfect timing for the injury. I mean, who wants to go through the embarrasment of being swept. He'd much rather be posing for Lenovo pictures.

In all fairness, I doubt they would have been swept if he was playing. They still would have lost the series, though.

Fixed that, because it was a dumb, egocentric comment and I would hate to offend your sense of symmetry.

Even at 10mm, the phone really looks almost paper thin... I don't think any phone should be going lower than 9mm. I don't like the trade off that comes with a smaller capacity of internals to work their magic on the device. Until technology advances faster, phones do not need to be getting slimmer at the quick rate they currently are.
