Yesterday evening we were invited by Lenovo to see what their next innovation in technology would be and they showcased their newest device dubbed the “Yoga Tablet”. Taking cues from their Yoga IdeaPad Ultrabook they released last holiday season, it has a kickstand that can be set up in three configurations. These would be Stand, Hold, and Tilt Mode. Stand could be for viewing movies, Hold for reading magazines/ebooks and Tilt for browsing the web or even typing.
Getting some hands-on with the YogaPad it resembled the Sony Xperia S Tablet for the added grip and of the Microsoft Surface of course because of the kickstand. Testing out the different modes I could see how it would work depending on what your doing and holding it in a upright position works based on how light the device is. Navigating through the Yoga Tablet the OS is pretty speedy(remains to be seen once more is added) and the display looks nice but feels could be a bit brighter and sharper.
