Lenovo Yoga Book Reinvents Tablet Design
The most beautiful and revolutionary design on a tablet from Lenovo. A great value for the money with all the new features never seen before.
The Lenovo Yoga Book is a beautifully designed tablet in a 2-in-1 form factor launched in IFA 2016. It can be a laptop, it can be a tablet, or both. You won’t have to worry if it can run your OS of choice because it can run either Android or Windows 10. It is just a tablet to seen in person for anyone to know how refreshing the design actually is.
Lenovo Yoga Book features the following specs:
- 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 display
- capacitive pad with virtual Halo Keyboard or Creative Pad
- Intel Atom x5-Z8550 quad-core at 2.4GHz
- 4GB of RAM
- 8.5Ah battery of up to 13 hours of use
- 64Gb base storage
- microSD support for up to 128Gb card
- Dolby Sound speakers
- 8MP main camera
- 2MP front facing camera
The Halo Keyboard is a capacitive keyboard that lights up when a user hits a text box or wherever alpha-numeric input is needed. Just like a virtual keyboard that appears on your smartphone when you are ready to type. It also offers the usual perks of spell checks and even haptic feedback to let the user know that it recognizes an input.
On some instances, the Real Pen acts very much like an S-Pen from a Samsung Note device. It then hides the Halo Keyboard and replaces it with the Creative Pad. This mode accepts user penmanship input with hand strokes directly shown on the display monitor. It has a 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity and 100 degrees of the nib to do all kinds of pen functions on the Yoga Book.
No keys ends up saving a lot of weight and space from the whole structural design. The Lenovo Yoga Book just comes in, without any third party cover, just 9.6mm in thickness when closed and 4.05mm when opened.
Special feature of the Lenovo Yoga Book aside from the Halo Keyboard and the Creative Pad is the way you can actually write on paper and your every stroke appear on the display as you write on a real paper. Just write using the Real Pen with real ink cartridges. Don’t use the Real Pen with ink when you’re not writing on paper. No batteries needed and the paper is provided by Lenovo. Using other paper is yet to be confirmed as feasible by Lenovo. This is a wonderful feature because you have a hard copy of the document you just wrote and a soft copy on the cloud saved using Lenovo’s own Note Saver Android app or Microsoft’s OneNote.
Lenovo is saying this to be first of its kind in the world.
You can get the Lenovo Yoga Book in gold with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for $499 or grab it in black with Windows 10 Home/Pro with Office Mobile installed for $549. The company’s looking to an October release timeframe.
