Lenovo has been teasing fresh products for a while now and their teasers included YouTube videos, hashtags and various pictures. The veil came off today, as they showcased the brand new Lenovo Yoga Tablet with Android, packing an interesting kickstand and huge battery.
The product will be available 8 inch and 10 inch versions and it was debuted by Ashton Kutcher among others, via livestream. This doesn’t seem like a high end affair, judging by the 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and the same screen (in both sizes) offers 178 degree viewing angles. Specs also include an MT8125 quad core 1.2 GHz CPU, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean as the OS.
Lenovo equipped the Yoga with 3 use modes, that revolve around the bulky lower part of the device. The company is saying that the slate has 3 usage patterns: hold, tilt and stand. The Yoga tablet was designed to fit an user’s hand and it’s also meant to be used easily with a single hand. Other specs include a 5 MP back camera, 1.6 MP front camera, dual front speakers, WiFi, Bluetooth, a microSIM card slot and a 6000 mAh battery for the 8 incher and 9000 mAh for the 10 incher.
The product hits the stores today, priced at $249 and $299 respectively.
