Lenovo’s Yoga Tablet 10 and Yoga Tablet 8 are new Android devices that pack up to 18 hours of battery life thanks to a built-in kickstand that hides such special battery powers.
As you can see in these images (gallery below), both devices have their own stands, which can be used to operate the tablets in specific positions. But that stand also hides a larger battery that offers 16 hours of life (Yoga Tablet 8) or 18 hours (Yoga Tablet 10).
The new tablets are both affordable devices, at $249 and $299, respectively, so don’t expect high-end hardware from them.
We’re looking at the same set of specs for both tablets including 1280 x 800 IPS displays (8- and 10-inch, respectively,) 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT8125 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, microSD support, 5-megapixel camera, 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean under the hood.
Interestingly, the Yoga Tablets have an iOS-like app arrangement, with each screen being populated with apps.
As for the dock, it has three modes it can be used in, including a “Read mode” (kickstand closed, it can be used as a regular tablet) “Stand mode” (kickstand open, it can be used as a laptop with a keyboard, or for enjoying videos) and “Tilt mode” (kickstand open, it can be used to type easier on the touchscreen).
Lenovo also has a $69 wireless keyboard to go along with the 10-inch model, and all devices will be available starting with October 30 from Best Buy. Additionally, the 10-inch model will also be available from other retailers including Amazon, Newegg and Fry’s.
