Chinese PC manufacturer Lenovo is shifting the gears with amazing speed. The worlds largest PC maker (erstwhile IBM) which knows that the future growth in the computing business is to be driven by smart phones and tablets, betting big on tablets. Hence it has come out with not one but two tablet releases : Yoga 8 and Yoga 10 for Indian buyers.
Both the tablets will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and have practically the same specs except for the screen size. The Yoga 8 has a 8 incher display while the Yoga 10 will sport a 10 inch one but both will offer a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels.
Other than that, both the Yoga tablets will be available in 16 GB versions with Wi-Fi and 3G for connectivity options. The Yoga available overseas has LTE on it. Both the Yoga's are powered by quad-core MediaTek processors. The Wi-Fi variants have MediaTek MT8125 processor and 3G variants have MediaTek MT8389 processor. The Yoga 8 and Yoga 10 run 1GB of RAM and have a 5MP rear camera with auto focus capabilities while the front camera will be a VGA affair. The buyers will have a option to buy a 32GB version which will cost you more. There is also a MicroSD expansion slot in case you require that extra bit of memory.
Lenovo on its part is doing its best to promote the Yoga 8 and Yoga 10 launch. Those who buy the tablet by November 24 can take home an accessory bundle worth Rs 4,000 hamper for the Yoga 8 and Rs 5,000 for the Yoga 10. This includes a sleeve cover, a screen protector and a pair of earphones.
The only problem is that with the impending launch of Nexus 5 with superlative features and Android 4.4 KITKAT aboard it, the future of these tablets sure looks bleak considering the price Lenovo is asking for them. If you are interested in buying either of the two, do consider buying it before 24th November, 2013 to avail the freebies Lenovo is shipping with them. The Yoga 8 and Yoga 10 are available in all Electronics/mobiles/Malls as well as on online portals.
