/// Lenovo Launches Yoga Tablet With Multiple Modes and a Side of Ashton Kutcher

October 30, 2013  |  All Things Digital

Ashton Kutcher is back pushing another tech product. But it’s not another Nikon camera or a Steve Jobs movie . Rather, it’s a new tablet from Lenovo . Tonight, the actor joined Lenovo onstage at an event in Los Angeles to unveil the Yoga Tablet. The Android Jelly Bean (4.2) device comes in an 8- and 10-inch model and will be available tomorrow for $249 and $299, respectively. When designing the Yoga Tablet, Lenovo said it wanted to do something that would help make its device stand out from the “sea of sameness,” referring to the fact that all tablets look alike. As a result, it features a cylindrical handle that allows you to use the tablet in several different modes — a concept Lenovo borrowed from its line of Yoga convertible laptops . In Hold mode, you can simply grip the handle for a more comfortable experience when reading e-books and messages. Rotating the cylinder 90 degrees will expose a stand, so you can prop the tablet on a desk for watching movies or video chats. Finally, you can lay the device down with the stand out to angle the screen for easier typing and viewing. One other benefit to the cylindrical handle, says Lenovo, is that it allowed them to include a larger battery. The Yoga Tablet is powered by dual batteries, similar in power to those used in laptops, and Lenovo estimates battery life to be around 18 hours in reading mode. Both the 8- and 10-inch Yoga Tablet have 1,280 by 800-pixel touchscreens, quad-core processors from MediaTek and 16 gigabytes of internal memory with microSD expansion options
