There is not that much that you can do to a tablet to make it stand out from the crowd, except for various combinations of components, obviously. As far as design is concerned, it is just a slate that you can lay down flat on the table or hold in your hands. Lenovo thought that there was something to be done and played with the idea a bit. The result is the Lenovo Yoga Tablet. The device is available in two sizes: with 8-inch and 10-inch display, selling for $249 and $299, respectively.
Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 and 10 – What’s new
What is unusual about the Yoga Tablet 8 and 10 is that both features a round bulge on one side. This prominent curve serves multiple purposes. First of all, it makes it easier to get a good grip on the tablet preventing it from slipping out of your hand. Moreover, the bulge hides a nice surprise. Run your fingers across the back of the tablet and you will find a tiny roll-out kickstand. The kickstand can elevate one side of the tablet or prop it up to a monitor position.
Both, the 8-inch and 10-inch model are pretty much identical in terms of specs, the only difference besides the screen size, being battery capacity. The 8-inch model packs a 6,000 mAh cell, while the bigger variant sports a 9,000 mAh battery, both capable of delivering up to 18 hours of usage time, according to Lenovo. The Yoga Tablets are powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core MediaTek 8125 processor based on the Cortex A7 architecture.
Other features include 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal memory with microSD slot for expansion. Both slates run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
