Lenovo to ship Yoga Tablet 2 with built-in Pico projector and Android/Windows OS
Lenovo have unveiled today at London their latest Yoga tablet refresh in the form of three different sizes across two different operating systems. There is no denying the popularity of the miltimode Yoga series and the Chinese manufacturer seems keen on keeping the series fresh with unique features for the consumer audience.
First up is the Yoga Tablet 2, which will be available in 8-inch and 10-inch screen sizes with a choice of either Android or Windows 8. Users who side with Microsoft can receive optional 4G and pre-installed Office 365 on the 10-inch model, while Android aficionados will get 4.4 KitKat and optional 4G across all screen sizes.
Aside from the software differences, the 8-inch and 10-inch models feature the new "Hang mode", which allows users to hang the tablet on walls via a new flap on the chassis. Internally, both tablets will run Atom processors with Dolby Audio, dual-band WiFi, micro USB and OTG support, and an 8 MP rear camera. More detailed specifications like the Atom model and battery size have not been revealed as of this writing.
Moving up from the Yoga Tablet 2 is the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, which Lenovo boasts as a premium media experience. This QHD 2560 x 1440 13-inch tablet features a built-in Pico projector with 8 Watt JBL sound and subwoofer for some impressive movie experience on-the-go. The tablet itself will be 3.7 mm thick and 950 grams. As for the Pico projector, the manufacturer claims a screen size of up to 50-inches for three hours. MicroSD is supported along with an 8 MP rear camera and Hang mode similar to its smaller siblings.
The 8-inch, 10-inch, and 13-inch Yoga Tablet 2 models will start at $249, $299, and $499, respectively. The 10-inch and 13-inch models will come first later this month with the 8-inch model to follow in November. As usual, expect our full reviews of these tablets shortly thereafter.
