Lenovo’s Yoga Tablet changes what you know about tablets

Lenovo expands its tablet lineup with the Yoga Tablet, touted as the first tablet with multiple user modes: Hold, Tilt, and Stand. It also boasts of an astounding 18-hour battery life with moderate use.

The 8- and 10-inch models can both be used standing on their own via the built-in kickstand. The tablet can lean at an angle of 60 to 90 degrees, suitable for screen sharing, video watching, or typing with the Bluetooth keyboard accessory (specially designed for the 10-inch Yoga Tablet).

Meanwhile, Tilt Mode is recommended for Web browsing, gaming, and typing on the screen. The Lenovo Yoga Tablet’s Hold Mode aims to make holding the tablet more conveniently and with less stress to the wrist thanks to the cylindrical edge on the tablet’s long side.

It is this cylindrical side that makes much of the difference as it acts as a grip, functions as a hinge for the kickstand, and houses the audio jack, speakers, power button, and the 6000mAh (8-inch) or 9000mAh (10-inch) battery. Granted, the 18-hour battery life may be difficult to believe at this point. But with such a huge battery, Lenovo could hold true to its promise. If you still have doubts, maybe Ashton Kutcher, Lenovo’s product engineer, can convince you.

Other important specs to note: 3mm-thin body, 1280 x 800-pixel display, 5MP rear camera, 1.6MP HD front camera, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, Android 4.2, 1GB RAM, and 16/32GB internal storage expandable to 64GB via microSD. The 8-inch tablet comes with phone functions.

The 8-inch (P14,999) and 10-inch (P16,999) Lenovo Yoga Tablet models will be available in the Philippines starting mid-December 2013 at select Lenovo Exclusive Stores (LES) and the Lenovo Mobile Exclusive Store in Gaisano Mall, Davao City.
