The Chinese-based manufacturer Lenovo has announced the all-new Yoga Book 2-in-1 tablet, the company’s latest and different kind of tablet in Lenovo Yoga series. Seven and more advantages of the new Yoga Book makes full use of it. Here is everything you need to know about the new Lenovo Yoga Book completely with price in India and hardware keys.
At IFA 2016 tradeshow in Berlin, Lenovo has introduced the world with a piece of technology that comes along with more than lightweight and super-thin. The Lenovo Yoga Book ditches the conventional keyboard for a flat black slab, with touch-sensitive buttons that illuminate only when the “Halo Keyboard” is enabled.
The first is to point at this usual touchscreen, but the second is something new. It’s a touch-sensitive surface powered by Wacom. Toggle it off and you activate a Wacom digitizer with 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity, converting the keyboard into a drawing tablet for the included stylus. It has light-up keys that make it a keyboard, but also accepts input from a stylus.
The new Yoga Book runs either on Android or Windows operating system depending on which model you get go. The device is a whole new thing. Calling it a mobile productivity device and a versatile 2-in1, as Lenovo promotes it. There’s never been anything like the Yoga Book before and this is a 10-inch clamshell device, which replaces the conventional keyboard with a flat panel that accepts either stylus or touch input.
Things that you want to cover up would be its CPU. The Yoga Book is powered by an Intel Atom x5 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage space. It’s made out of magnesium and aluminum and calls it the “Create Pad”. It has yet another trick, you can swap in an ink cartridge into the included stylus and take notes on real paper and the Yoga Book will copy what you’re doing in real-time. That’s because the hinge lets you swing the screen all the way around, so that you can take notes on paper while it’s folded up with the screen off on the back and the tablet will still record them.
“The hinge is engineered to be smaller and features a custom-made three-axis hinge, with 130 different mechanical pieces comprising five different materials,” says Lenovo. It has four modes – Browse, Watch, Create and Type.
The Halo keyboard is made with glass for a rough, matte feel, along side it comes with anti-glare coating for the best touch-typing experience. It significantly learns and adapts typing habits that too with built-in prediction and artificial learning software. Also adds a sensitive haptic tech. Using stylus, you can take notes and annotate naturally, later save, edit and even export the copy to other apps. It can even draw with precision of a pencil or paintbrush and have 100-degree angle detection.
