The Yoga tablet computer is the latest Android-powered tablet from Lenovo. The holiday shopping season is right around the corner, so we can expect more of these devices from all the players in the field.
The Yoga’s main claim to tablet stardom is a Lithium-Ion battery that can keep the tablet going continuously for about 18 hours. Battery-life claims tend to come with an asterisk, so don’t imagine for a moment that the Yoga tablet can give you 18 hours of non-stop Youtube action. It won’t. More about the battery life here.
The other features of this tablet is a battery cylinder and built-in kickstand that gives it three usage modes – Hold, Tilt and Stand.
Aside from those features, there is nothing else on the Yoga that I consider outstanding. It certainly has nothing on Apple’s iPad Air; the Yoga’s IPS display with its 1280 x 800 screen resolution pales in comparison to the 2048 x 1536 Retina display of the iPad Air.
Inside the Yoga is a low-end version of MediaTek’s MT8125/8389 tablet chipset, backed by a quad-core Cortex™-A7 CPU subsystem. There’s an 8-inch and a 10-inch model of the Yoga, with price tags of $249 and $299 respectively.
Other features of the Yoga are:
- Android™ 4. 2 JellyBean
- 1 GB RAM
- 16 GB or 32 GB eMMC internal storage. Supports 64 GB micro-SD card
- 5M rear and 1.6M HD front cameras
- Micro USB port with support for OTG
