Lenovo has announced its latest tablets and laptops, comprised of the new Yoga 3 Pro laptop and the convertible ThinkPad Yoga 14, along with the YOGA Tablet 2 Pro and the YOGA Tablet 2. I know and I agree with many out there – despite making some great products, Lenovo definitely doesn’t know how to name them properly. It’s easily to make a confusion between tablets and laptops but maybe that’s what the company wants, heh?
Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro
The new 13-inch Yoga Tablet 2 Pro targets consumers who are looking for entertainment features, as it comes with a built-in tablet-projector, 8 watts of sound including a subwoofer. Lenovo claims it’s the first time when a tablet features a subwoofer and it’s also not that often that you hear about tablets with embedded projectors.
With the Pico projector, users can project a 16:9 high resolution image onto any surface. The tablet is said to offer up to 15 hours of battery life and has actually been developed with Ashton Kutcher, who joined Lenovo as a product engineer a year ago. This tablet is said to be the first to sport a 8 watt sound system along with a subwoofer. The tablet also comes with Dolby Audio and Wolfson Master HiFi technologies for a multi-channel listening experience.
The 13-inch screen YOGA Tablet 2 Pro features a QHD 2560×1440 screen, which means images will have a crisp quality. The tablet comes with a new mode called Hang. And it does just what the name suggests – allows users to interact with the tablet by hanging it anywhere they want.
The tablet runs on the latest 4th generation Intel Atom processor and sports a 8 MP rear camera. It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and has 2GB of RAM. It comes in 32GB or 64 GB versions, but there’s also Micro SD support for even more storage. The Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro will be available at the end of October with a starting price of $499.
Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2
The new Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 brings multiple screen sizes – 8 or 10 inch and allows users to choose between Android or Windows models. Just like the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, it comes with the new Hang mode and a larger kickstand.
The tablet features a Intel Atom processor and dual band speed WiFi with optional 4G. It sports dual front speakers with cinematic Dolby Audio and Wolfson Master HiFi along with an 8 MP rear camera.
Lenovo offers the YOGA Tablet 2 with Windows in Ebony-colored 8-in and 10-in models along with Microsoft Office 365 preloaded for 1-year. There’s optional 4G on the 10-inch model, as well. Android lovers can get the YOGA Tablet 2 in 8 and 10-inches in Platinum color.
The YOGA Tablet 2 10-in and 8-in Android models start at $299 and $229, respectively while the YOGA Tablet 2 with Windows 10-in models will be available in late October via Best Buy starting at $399 and the 8-in model will be available in November starting at €249.
