    Lenovo is apparently working on a gigantic Android tablet. A Lenovo tablet with an 18.4-inch display showed up on GFXBench. The device had the following model name, PB2-690N, and showed the following specs beyond just the huge display:
    • 18.4-inch display (2560×1440)
    • Snapdragon 652 processor
    • 4GB of RAM
    • Android 6.0.1 “Google Edition.” (nearly stock Android)
    • Front camera is 8MP
    • Rear is only 0.3MP (why bother putting such a weak rear camera at all?)
    Would you consider buying a tablet of this size?

    I actually have an 18" Windows tablet running Windows 10. It has its uses as a backup PC, but the size makes it difficult to carry around. It's really a desktop replacement in a slim form factor.

    Size is going to be a problem here. At 18" we're into desktop replacement territory. Plus, Lenovo will run into the same issue the Pixel C has, that issue being Android itself. One of the complaints about the Pixel C is Android not taking advantage of that screen through multi-window. With Lenovo, that problem is magnified as the screen is larger.

    The good news is that it should see an update to Android N, which will help with the multitasking. People who don't want to wait however will install Remix OS on it to take full advantage of the screen.
