Lenovo Yoga Book Review: The Android laptop of the future?
We had a chance to play with the Yoga Book this year at IFA during a Lenovo press event. It certainly gave off a geeky-cool first impression, all wrapped up in a retro-futuristic shell.
Coming in both Android and Windows flavors, we’ve spent some time with the Android variant of this hardware. On paper it’s a well specced slate, but of course the exciting aspect of this build is the large touch sensor where a keyboard should be. This surface pulls double duty for both text entry and it can be used to capture handwriting or for sketching and painting. I’m not an artist, nor do I have legible handwriting, but that doesn’t mean we can’t put this gadget through its paces.
Now playing with this multi-mode hybrid tablet for a little more than a week, it’s time to share our thoughts on this touch sensor experiment. Is it the Android slate of the future, or is it hardware ahead of its time?
