Lenovo grows

LAS VEGAS--With its 5.5-inch display, the K900 joins the growing family of king-size displays like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the LG Intuition. But don't let its size fool you; it has a comfortable and lightweight feel in the hand. Of course, the highlight is the Z2580 2GHz dual-core processor that's part of the Clover Trail+ platform.

Media

As you'd expect there's a full media player. I only saw a brief clip, but the quality looked great.

Skin of steel

The stainless-steel casing gives the K900 not only a shiny, sleek look, but also a sturdy construction.
