Lenovo YOGA Tab 3 8" and YOGA Tab 3 10" are official: affordable media-consumption machines

Lenovo has just announced the YOGA Tab 3 series, starting with the entry-level Tab 3 8” and Tab 3 10”. Both slates feature Lenovo's signature foldable stand, together with the hanger hole, which allows users to prop the tablets up in many various ways, depending on location and situation. Additionally, each of the devices packs a set of stereo speakers on its front, powered by Dolby Atmos 3D Surround Sound tech.

The tablets also have a single 8 MP camera, perched atop a rotatable module, so that it can act as both a front-facing and back-facing snapper. Lenovo has also equipped the slates with what it calls AnyPen Technology – it allows any metal (or conductive material-made) object to be used as a stylus, should the need call for it.

Both devices run on Android 5.1 Lollipop and their hardware is quite modest. The YOGA Tab 3 8" is equipped with an 8" IPS display with a 800 x 1280 resolution (~189 PPI), a quad-core, 1.3 GHz processor by Qualcomm, 1 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD of up to 128 GB. The lights are kept on by a 6,200 mAh battery.

The YOGA Tab 3 10” sports a 10.1” HD display with the same 800 x 1280 resolution (~149 PPI) and is also equipped with a 1.3 GHz, quad-core Qualcomm SoC, and 1 GB of RAM. Its internal storage is also 16 GB, expandable via microSD up to 128 GB, and its battery is larger, at 8,400 mAh capacity.

As far as pricing goes, the Wi-Fi only variant of the YOGA Tab 3 8” will start at $169, whereas the LTE-capable one will start from $199. The 10” model will cost from $199 for the Wi-Fi only version, and from $249 for the LTE-capable one.

For 199, 10 inch tablet isn't bad.
