Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 [Android] Hands-on
The YOGA Tablet 2 combines design innovation with enhanced technology features to deliver a premium convertible entertainment device. Built to adapt to a user no matter where they go, the tablet’s redesigned kickstand now rotates nearly 180° to offer a brandnew mode – Hang – for a completely hands-free, interactive experience in the kitchen, on a plane or at the gym. The YOGA Tablet 2 is also equipped with twin large-chamber front-facing Dolby® Audio speakers, a Full HD display and a powerful Intel® Atom™ quad core processor to deliver a superior multimedia experience with the same extensive 18-hour battery life that ultra-mobile users have come to know and love.
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 10-in and 8-in Android models are available on www.lenovo.com beginning Oct. 9. Models start at $299.99 and $249.99, respectively.
