Lenovo launches two Yoga tablets

Written by Fudzilla staff

Weird kickstand design, huge battery

Many companies are experimenting with new tablet form factors and hybrids. Lenovo is not new to the game, but its new approach is.

 

The new Yoga tablets feature a rather unusual design. It features a massive cylindrical battery which reminds us of old netbooks with the distinctive 6-cell battery hump at the back. The battery also doubles as a kickstand, thanks to a foldable flap.

You can use the tablet propped up on the kickstand either vertically or horizontally, as a quasi-hybrid with the keyboard cover, or as a regular tablet – in which case the hump doesn’t really look like a good idea as it adds quite a bit of bulk.

The Yoga tablet will be available in two sizes, 10 and 8 inches, but both feature the same spec – a quad-core MediaTek processor, 1GB or RAM and 16GB of storage. The resolution is 1280x800 and you can only get the keyboard cover if you go for the 10-incher.

The 8-inch version will sell for $249, while the 10-incher ends up with a $299 price tag. Not what we’d call cheap.
