Android tablets have not seen a significant update in ages, but Motorola is reportedly working on one that features a new “Productivity Mode.” However, it appears that the software takes a lot of inspiration from parent company Lenovo’s tablets.
Earlier today Lenovo unveiled a new version of its Yoga Book tablet from last year, the Yoga A12. The new larger, more affordable machine offers lesser specifications, but with the added screen real-estate and larger footprint the update makes total sense. My biggest question? Why is this not a Chromebook?
Lenovo had a lot to show us at IFA this year — perhaps more than expected. We heard quite a while ago that the company was planning more Moto Mods and a “Play” version of the Moto Z, but the company’s Android-powered convertible and tablet caught many by surprise. Unfortunately, despite the external attractiveness of pretty much everything the company announced, there’s nothing that screams sure-fire hit with consumers. Watch our hands-on video for more…
Today at IFA 2016, alongside the new Android-running Yoga Book, Lenovo announced a brand new Android tablet, the Yoga Tab 3 Plus. This 10.1-inch tablet puts a focus on entertainment, bringing a big, bright 2K display, JBL speakers, special viewing modes, and more.
There hasn’t been hardly anything exciting in the tablet world for a while now, but Lenovo’s recent release of the Yoga Book actually caught our attention with new features and a pretty solid overall value. However, it wasn’t anywhere near perfect. Now, it looks like Lenovo is giving the form factor another shot with a new Yoga Book model, this time with a larger display and more affordable price point.
One of the highlights of IFA 2016 last week, at least from Lenovo, was the company’s very unique 2-in-1, the Yoga Book. Running your choice of Android or Windows, the Yoga Book brings a 10.1-inch display on one side, with a special touchpad which doubles as a keyboard on the opposite side. Lenovo has put a skin atop Android to let it take better advantage of the hardware, but at first glance, the Yoga Book seems better suited to run on Chrome OS, and apparently, Lenovo has the same idea…
When it comes to high-end Android tablets, they don’t come much more unique than the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro. The full-size tablet is equipped with a Quad HD resolution 10.1-inch screen, Intel Atom quad-core processor, a 10,200vmAh battery and has a built-in projector. Its unusual design certainly makes it stand out. But is it any good?
There hasn’t been much excitement in the world of Android tablets, but one option that impressed us in 2016 was Lenovo’s unique Yoga Book. Featuring a custom Android build, futuristic “halo” keyboard, and capable hardware, it was an excellent machine. Now, the company has debuted a new variant of that laptop/tablet hybrid, the Yoga A12.
