The movie is an adaptation of the game, Need for Speed by Electronic Arts (EA).

The film stars Aaron Paul (two-time Emmy winner for “Breaking Bad”), Dominic Cooper (“Captain America: The First Avenger”), Imogen Poots (“Fright Night”), Ramon Rodriguez (“Transformers”), Rami Malek (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”), Scott Mescudi, Dakota Johnson (“21 Jump Street”), Harrison Gilbertson and Michael Keaton (“Batman”).

The movie is about Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul), who runs his family’s auto shop and races the underground street circuit with his buddies on weekends. Life is good, but his whole world is turned upside down when he is sent to prison for a crime he didn’t commit. In prison, he spends the next two years thinking about one thing: vengeance. While questioning the morals to which he has always adhered, he is nevertheless determined to bring down his enemies.

Lenovo at Mobile World Congress 2014

Derrick Koh who is the Head of Communications for Lenovo in Asia Pacific drop me a message on Facebook and ask me whether I am free to attend the Lenovo’s booth media tour. Since I am available, I pop by the Lenovo booth together with Jason Goh.

We previewed some of the new phones like the Lenovo S860, Lenovo S850, Lenovo S660 and a new tablet which is the Lenovo Tablet HD+.

The Lenovo S series mobile phones are targeted at the mid-range market and there is a feature of the Lenovo S860 that I really like which is to use it’s own 4,000mAh battery to charge other USB powered devices by using the included micro USB cable (I think is a special cable).

Lenovo S860
The Lenovo S860 is a powerful and responsive smartphone that keeps up with even the busiest users, featuring ultra-long battery life for all-day productivity. Encased in a beautiful brushed metal exterior, the large 5.3″ HD screen, quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM make it a smooth and stylish performer able to go as long as you do.
