Lenovo offers the YOGA Tablet 2 with Windows in Ebony-colored 8-in and 10-in models. They come with Microsoft Office 365 preloaded (1-year subscription). The 10-inch version comes with Bluetooth-enabled keyboard snaps into place, allowing you to message, email, and type with ease. It even doubles as a hard cover to protect your screen.

A New Way to Do More
The new YOGA Tablet 2 models focus on technology that adapts to users, making computing intuitive and fun. Still thin and light in all sizes, the tablets provide a new level of flexibility starting with the new Hang mode. Users can still enjoy the three original modes – Hold, Tilt and Stand – and now discover a fourth mode – Hang – that lets them hang their device to display content. Responding to customer feedback, Lenovo also improved the kickstand in Stand mode for more stability when pressing the 10-point multitouch screen.
In addition to the tablet’s responsive design, its performance specs got an upgrade. An Intel® Atom™ processor supports the enhanced sound and camera features consisting of dual front speakers with cinematic Dolby® Audio and Wolfson® Master HiFi™ for clear sound with an 8 MP rear camera. The tablets also sport a number of useful features for connectivity with dual band WiFi and a micro USB with OTG connection that lets users charge their phone (requires separate cable). Additionally, users can enjoy extra long battery life for staying mobile longer in any of its four modes.
The YOGA Tablet 2 with Windows 10-in models will be available in late October via Best Buy starting at $399. The 8-in model will be available on www.lenovo.com in November starting at $299.
