Lenovo has unveiled its new Yoga Tablet, coming in 10-inch and 8-inch models.
Last month, rumours suggested that Lenovo would release a device in October that had a leg it can use to ‘stand itself up’. While the month was correct, unfortunately the new Yoga Tablet shows no sign of moving about on it’s own.
It does have a short stand, which I guess could be described as a leg. But rather than having the ability to stand itself up, users have the option to position the device in three different modes.
‘Hold mode’ is simply holding the device. Unlike most tablets, the Yoga has cylinder attached to one side. This is where most of the weight lies, which makes the tablet easier to hold and lighter in portrait mode.
The cylindrical edge houses a battery boasting 18 hours of life from one charge.
‘Tilt mode’ is the name Lenovo has given to just placing the tablet on a surface. The rounded part angles the screen towards the user.
The last mode is ‘stand mode’. This is where the ‘leg’ comes in. The flip out stand can lock the device into a number of angles in landscape mode.
Specs include 16GB of on-board storage (which can be doubled to 32GB), microSD card slot of up to 64GB, 1280 x 800 display, 5MP rear camera, 1.6MP front camera, 1.2GHz quad-core processor and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
