One-of-a-kind Lenovo Yoga Book 2-in-1 tablet starts selling ahead of schedule in the UK
With the iPhone 7 and LG V20 unveiled on the heels of IFA 2016, all this talk about exploding Galaxy Note 7s, Core Primes and even S7s, plus growing speculation of two impressive Google Pixel handhelds coming soon, it might feel like we’ve shrugged off some cool new gadgets recently showcased in Berlin a little too quickly.
Case in point, the convertible but non-detachable Lenovo Yoga Book with Windows 10 Pro or Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This isn’t exactly a Surface Pro 4 or iPad Pro killer, packing just an Intel Atom x5 processor, and settling for a relatively small, low-res 10.1-inch 1,920 x 1,200 pixels IPS touchscreen.
Where it does shine however is in the creativity-encouraging department, allowing you to “draw like a real pro” or write in actual ink on paper with an included Real Pen stylus. The “on-demand” Halo keyboard sports haptic feedback, disappearing into thin air when it’s not needed, and the whole ensemble is 360-degree rotatable and usable in four different modes.
Initially said to be headed worldwide starting October, the Yoga Book can already be purchased on British shores from Lenovo’s local e-store, currently shipping in 11 business days for £510 when running Windows, or four weeks at £430 a pop powered by Android.
Both configurations remain unavailable elsewhere, featuring 4GB RAM each, 64GB expandable storage, 13-hour battery life, and 8/2MP cameras.
