Earlier this week we reported that Lenovo is planning to release a Windows tablet in the Yoga tablet series. An Italian blog recently reported about it and even revealed photos of the Yoga tablets. As you can see in the image above, there will be Windows key in the horizontal center of the device.
Today, more info about this device got leaked. Lenovo is going to announce not one but three Windows tablets in the Yoga series. An 8-inch version, 10-inch version and a 13-inch version. These tablets will go on sale in November and the official announcement will be made in the coming days.
All of these tablets will be powered by Intel Atom Z3745 Quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and support for SD cards. 8-inch tablet will have 1920 x 1200 IPS LCD display, 16Gb internal memory, 6400 mAh battery, 8MP and 1.6 MP cameras, 2.7 to 7mm thick and weight of 400gms. The 13-inch version will come with WQHD display 2560 x 1440 pixels, 32GB internal memory, 900 grams weight and 3.7 to 12.4mm thickness and 9600 mAh battery.
The 8-inch version is expected to cost around $300 – $350 USD while 13-inch version around $500 – $550 USD.
Lenovo Yoga tablet:
The main highlight of these this device is the pioneering design that places a battery cylinder and kickstand on the side of the device, shifting the center of gravity and opening up multiple usage modes: Hold, Tilt, and Stand. In Hold mode, the weight of the device falls into your palm rather than your fingers, making it more comfortable for reading and browsing. Lay it down into Tilt mode and you have a perfect viewing angle for typing or gaming. Flick the kickstand and rest it upright in Stand mode to comfortably watch videos, listen to music, or video-chat.
Yoga Tablet’s unique, cylinder-shaped side chamber allows more room for battery storage — and more time between charges. For example, Yoga Tablet 10 HD+’s battery lasts up to 18 hours so you can go all day — and into the night — without recharging.
