Most of the companies that ruled the PC industry at one point of time are now entering the highly competitive mobile and tablet industry. Most of them, however, have met with little to no success. Lenovo has released quite a few Android tablets in the past but none of them stood out from the competition.
The company is looking to change all that with its latest Yoga line-up of tablets. The new Yoga tablets have a subtle curve at its back to help in better handling and easier gripping.
The curve also hides a nifty kickstand which puts the tablet at a slightly higher angle, which should help in improving viewing angles and ease of use. Lenovo will be offering the Yoga tablets in 8 and 10-inch versions.
Sadly, Lenovo has skimped heavily on the internal specifications of the tablet. Both the 8-inch and 10-inch tablets sport a resolution of only 1280*800. They are powered by a heavily under-powered 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek processor as well.
Below are the full specs of both the tablets -:
- 1280*800 resolution for 8 and 10-inch models
- 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek processor
- 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSD card slot
- 5MP rear-camera
- USB On-The Go, Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth
- Dual front-facing Dolby certified speakers
- 6000 and 9000mAh non-removable battery
- Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Lenovo’s software enhancements
Lenovo quotes the battery life of the tablets at a whopping 18 hours. The 8-inch Yoga tablet will set you back by $249, with the larger version costing $299. The tablets will be available in Best Buy beginning from tomorrow itself.
If you are in the market for a new tablet, don’t bother with these tablets. The new Nexus 7 from Google offers a much better value and performance is every possible way.
