Lenovo today announced the launch of next-generation Yoga Tablet 2. The new Windows tablet is powered by Intel and will retail exclusively on Flipkart starting mid-November 2014. As well as Stand, Hold, and Tilt modes from the earlier generation of Yoga tablets, the latest series introduces a new Hang mode that allows one to hang the tablet using a cut-out in the kickstand.
While there are multiple Android models with different screen sizes in the series, only one Windows version is available with a 10-inch Full HD (1920x1200) IPS display. Powered by a fourth-generation, quad-core Intel Atom Processor Z3745 with 2GB RAM, the tablet packs 32GB internal memory inside, expandable up to 64GB thanks to microSD card support. There's also an 8-megapixel auto-focus rear camera and a 1.6-megapixel HD front-facing camera.
The company claims a long battery life of up to 15 hours. Powered by Windows 8.1, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 is available for ₹34,990 ($570) and comes with 1 year subscription to Office 365 for free. The tablet also comes bundled with a Bluetooth AccuType keyboard cover, an ultra slim keyboard cover gives notebook-equivalent typing quality and attaches firmly and securely by magnets.
