When Lenovo introduced its first Yoga tablet last month, it recruited the support of its newest product engineer, Ashton Kutcher, the latest in a long list of celebrity's technology partnership that includes Alicia Keys and Shakira.
Lenovo Yoga tablet is not really a risk, but it may have the next necessary step Chinese manufacturer has to do it if it wants to break into the market and become more recognizable brand.
Company is currently the largest manufacturer of PC sales in the world and figured out how to expand your business in the market downturn, but it sells more smartphones and tablets than desktops and laptops. The problem is that most of them are located in China.
If you are interested in modestly priced Android tablet that can stand on its own without the addition of the separately priced cover; rollover itself towards you on the table, for easier use and viewing, and can offer varieties of pen that makes it easy to hold while reading and even allow one-handed use, the Lenovo Yoga tablet is an excellent choice.
It is now available in two sizes, 8 - inch model for $ 249 exclusively at Best Buy in the U.S. and 10 - inch version for $ 299 is more widespread.
Yoga bends to accommodate the lifestyle Here is the part where I tell the truth about something: I do not own a tablet. I feel I have no need for one. I work from home and I'm in front of a laptop all day. When I examined the other tablets, they tend to sit on the printer in my home office until I pressed myself spending time with them.
I just had no reason to grab for them that my laptop, phone or TV does not satisfy (I understand that other people do). Form Factor Tablet Yoga changed that, though, mainly because the standby mode so convenient. During the cooking process, I used yoga in tilt mode consult the recipe and then switched his stand when the counter was too crowded, and I wanted to listen to a podcast (two front side speakers Dolby really good - strong and clear).
E- Reading prowess I understand that these things can be done with other tablets and properly disposed cover, but I found it compelling, Yoga tablet can do it yourself. It's driving me a little crazy that Apple, running for a year , to shave millimeters tirelessly and create a refined , advanced piece of technology that people will pay $ 850 , and then cover with almost 5 cents a piece of rubber . But covers also offer the book as a spine that yoga as a tablet on hold. Lenovo sent me his two 10-inch and 8 - inch models. 10 - Inch model gets heavy in your hand pretty quickly no8 inch has an appropriate weight of 0.88 pounds, and when my hand got tired, I just turned the sign again and used his other hand.
Display woes: One of my few complaints about Yoga tablets was their manifestations - I wish they were sharper. 9.7- inch display has a resolution IPad Air 2048 and 1536. 10.1 - inch display Yoga Tablet is 1280 800. The difference is like wearing fuzzy points.
Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2Another complaint is their weight. Lenovo should shave it. In iPad Airmasses 1 pound, 10.1-inch Yoga Tablet weighs 1.33 kg. Last is the weight at which the Hold mode is attractive to do business, such as the chart shows a colleague or photo to relatives, but do not read long. I pulled Yoga tablets in their boxes with some doubts - their “spirals “as I came to think of the cylinders along screens, tablets do seem heavy instantly, instead of wow - the light factor. But it is very good, practical and convincing form factor. Now, Lenovo just need to improve it.
