Lenovo bows adjustable Yoga tablet with 18 hours battery

Lenovo on Tuesday introduced a new adjustable Android tablet in the form of an 8-inch and 10-inch Yoga.  Priced affordably, ($249, $299, respectively), the Yoga promises up to 18 hours of battery life and provides three different “modes”.

Looking not unlike a magazine folded back in the center, the Lenovo Yoga can be adjusted for in-hand or tabletop usage. The key design feature comes in the cylindrical battery which allows for longer run times and front-facing speakers.

Internal specifications put the tablet right in the middle of the pack; a 1.2GHZ quad-core Mediatek processor, 1GB RAM, and 16GB internal storage are par for the course. Display resolution is 1280×800 pixels for both as is the 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera, microSD (up to 64GB), and micro SIM (3G) card slot. Powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the 8-inch version weighs 0.88 pounds while the 10-inch falls in a tad heavier at 1.33 pounds.

The 8-in model is already available exclusively at Best Buy stores and lenovo.com while the 10-in model will be available via major retailers including Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, Fry’s, Newegg.com and lenovo.com. The Lenovo Yoga 10 Bluetooth Keyboard Cover is $69 and is offered via major retailers and lenovo.com.
