Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga A12 Android YB1-Q501F

Lenovo Yoga A12 Android Tablet: Is It Good for Business?
Source: Business News Daily English
The Yoga A12 is definitely an interesting device, particularly for workers who want a tablet first, with the option to type on the virtual Halo keyboard to dash off a quick email reply. But based on my experience with last year’s Yoga Book, I can say with confidence that it's not accurate or comfortable enough for marathon typing sessions.

12.2":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005.
