Lenovo Yoga Book: An open book for digital-savvy millennials
User Rating

Lenovo ups the ante on tablet design with the release of the Yoga Book, a thin and light 2-in-1 tablet that allows users to take notes and sketch their own artworks using a stylus with real ink. Housed in a unique form factor that inspires creativity, the Yoga Book gives users the freedom to let their imagination roam free.

“Lenovo is committed to create innovative devices that help today’s shakers and makers create better and achieve more in their daily tasks. Featuring a Halo Keyboard and Real Pen input device for taking notes, drawing, and browsing the web, the Lenovo Yoga Book is the book of today’s digital-savvy millennial generation,” said Michael Ngan, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines.

Equipped with a Real Pen input for note-taking, a Halo Keyboard for easy typing, and a Book UI for seamless multi-tasking, the Yoga Book distinguishes itself as a “Create Pad” that inspires imagination.

The tablet uses Lenovo’s watchband hinge to weave the touchscreen and a Wacom-powered touch-sensitive surface together.

The Halo Keyboard, a full touch screen backlit keyboard that weaves software and hardware into one fluid interface, makes the thin and light design possible. The touchscreen is made with glass that has a rough, matte feel and finish, along with anti-glare coating, while the keyboard lacks any physical keys and shows up as a solid white outline on the Yoga Book’s second panel only when needed. Aside from functioning as keyboard, the touch-sensitive surface also accepts input from a stylus.

The Yoga Book Real Pen allows users to swap in an ink cartridge into the included stylus and take notes on real paper. The Yoga Book will then automatically copy and digitize their notes in real time, allowing users to seamlessly organize, merge, and share notes instantly. They can even use the included Book Pad clipboard to magnetize their papers and keep them in place.

Featuring two panels that open up like a book, the Yoga Book breaks free from the conventional tablet paradigm. With a thickness of 9.6mm, this 690g form factor packs a punch in its svelte frame. It is fully furnished with the Android Marshmallow operating system and the latest Intel Atom processor. The Yoga Book also boasts of a 15-hour battery life, 10.1-inch IPS FHD screen, high-quality sound enhanced with Dolby Atmos, and 64GB of memory.
