Flexy goodness: Lenovo's new Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ unveiled

Flexy goodness: Lenovo's new Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ unveiled
When we first saw the original Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 in New York back at the end of October, we knew that the PC+ era is now truly upon us if the world's largest PC manufacturer is putting as much resources and effort into the portable Android class. Not half a year later, and a new, higher-end Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ model is now a reality, offering the same kind of flexible kickstand and grippy plastic/aluminum design. 

The most important distinction between the original 10-inch Yoga tablet and the HD+ is the bump in screen resolution. We're now talking a 1900x1200 resolution, or 220 pixels per inch. There are changes under the hood, too -- the MediaTek processor from last year's model has been traded up for a quad-core 1.6Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chip, and the amount of RAM has been bumped up to the more respectable 2GB. Internal storage sits at 32GB, and is expandable via a microSD card. 

If you go for Lenovo's new offering, you'll also be treated to a combo of an 8-megapixel rear shooter, and a 1.6-megapixel front cam for the occasional video call. The 3G-enabled Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ also comes packing quite the battery unit, at 9000mAh, and we can't say no to some Dolby Advanced Audio goodness, either. Last, but not least, the premium model comes pre-loaded with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and Lenovo is making a commitment to provide an OTA update to Android 4.4 KitKat at some point down the line.

The Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ will be made available through "major retailers" and Lenovo's own web store starting in April. The price tag of the fancy-looking tablet? $349, cash.

I don't think Windows will run well on a SD400 :)

Yeah it won't run at all but I tried to give the idea that what a true tablet needs is full Windows. Otherways it really is just a streched out smartphone

If Windows is going to be running on ARM processors, then it would be Windows RT, which has no apps, and no legacy support what so ever. Running Android you get to run both phone and tablet apps.

The Yoga line is a really nice line of tablets.

This form factor is simply orgasmic.... The thick sturdy base and the thin frame protruding outwards just gets me....... Lenovo why you do me like you do me, huh?
