Lenovo has announced their new ultra-portable - the IdeaPad Flex 10 – in India. The Flex 10 flips 300° from laptop to stand mode, making it an interesting convertible device for work and entertainment while on the go.

Unlike most convertibles in the market, the Flex 10 does not convert into a tablet, but into a stand mode which is quite useful for media consumption or casual browsing. The 2-in-1 features 10-point multitouch display optimized for Windows 8.
