Lenovo hints at more Moto Mods and a new Moto 360 for IFA

The company also promises 'a new chapter in tablets' among other reveals for the Berlin expo.

When Lenovo revealed its Moto Z line with Moto Mods, it promised there would be more ways to turn your phone into a multipurpose tool.

It looks the company will share exactly what it has in mind for new modules during Berlin’s IFA event in September. The news comes thanks to a brief promo video Lenovo just posted:

While it’s short on details, the pledge of more Moto Mods is important as Lenovo is putting a lot of energy and resources behind its modular smartphone. The company teased a “HyperCharge” mod for a rapid recharge and a “OneCompute” mod that turned your smartphone into a mini-computer during the Lenovo TechWorld event in June.

In terms of other hardware, the Moto 360 also is due for a refresh, and this would be as good a time as any to show one off if the company is building up a holiday 2016 lineup. As for the tablet tease, this could be another detachable or hybrid concept that’s risen in popularity thanks to the likes of the Surface line and iPad Pro.

Why this matters: Berlin’s IFA conference is usually a time when companies reveal what’s going to lead off their next hardware wave in time for the holiday rush. Lenovo is already selling its newest flagship phone, so it looks to be turning to shore up other elements of its product portfolio.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
