LONDON – October 9, 2014: Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced a new way to read, watch, connect and create with the new YOGA Tablet 2 Pro. Developed with Ashton Kutcher, who joined Lenovo as a product engineer a year ago, the new YOGA Tablet 2 Pro redefines the tablet experience.
Not only does it surprise and delight users with a number of world’s first technologies, it delivers innovation that ties together hardware and software innovation in a new way.
Designed to focus on a premium media experience, the YOGA Tablet 2 Pro has as its star feature a built-in Pico projector. The projector lets users turn inside walls into an instant TV or movie screen (1). Lenovo paired this premium technology for great video with unbelievable sound by giving the tablet a JBL sound system with a subwoofer. These exceptional features along with a host of other technologies make the YOGA Tablet 2 Pro like no other tablet.
Tablets Go Big Screen for Massive Multi-Media
As more and more people are using tablets to consume the ever growing volume of digital media – photos, videos and games - users are demanding bigger screens. A Lenovo research study found 88 percent of people are devouring large amounts of digital content on tablets at home, and more than half (2) of them watch TV several times a week on their tablet . That insight plus focus group feedback led to the creation of the larger 13-in screen YOGA Tablet 2 Pro media tablet. Designed from the ground up specifically for digitally-hungry consumers, it features a QHD 2560x1440 screen for life-like images.
A New Way to Watch and Hear with World’s First Technologies
Whether presenting in a meeting to colleagues or lying at home watching a movie, the YOGA Tablet 2 Pro makes it easy to view and share content with its Pico projector. Users can project a 16:9 high resolution image onto any surface for an instant 50-in theater experience. With automatic image adjustment and up to three hours playback time, users can get through a double feature before having to plug in the tablet. The tablet’s enhanced audio system also provides a captivating 8 total watts of sound, quadrupling the speaker power of an average tablet. Its dual, large-chamber speakers are front-facing for dynamic audio, and a subwoofer on the back rounds it out with deep bass notes while Dolby® Audio and Wolfson® Master HiFiTM ensure a multi-channel listening experience, just like the movies.
More Modes, Performance and Software for Multilayered Lifestyles
The YOGA Tablet 2 Pro makes users’ lives easier in other ways too with a fourth mode – Hang. Now users can interact with the tablet in a new way by hanging it anywhere they want. They can also continue to enjoy the other three original modes: Hold for better angles for reading, Tilt for easily browsing online and Stand for close up content from digital libraries. While loaded with lots of useful features that adapt to user’s lifestyles, the Platinum-colored tablet remains thin and light at just 3.7mm thin and 950 grams.
The new YOGA Tablet 2 Pro also runs on the latest 4th generation Intel® AtomTM processor, helping power smooth multimedia playback and rendering, great for multitaskers. Also, for picture-perfect snapshots, it has an extremely high resolution 8 MP rear camera and plenty of storage equipped with 32GB and up to 64 GB via Micro SD. And with up to 15 hours of battery life and optional 4G (3), users can stay mobile nearly around the clock. To keep up with their busy lifestyles, users need software to keep them organized, especially with the myriad of contacts contained in their different email and social media accounts. With Brewster on the tablet, users now have an app to manage contacts for them. Brewster files contacts from various apps into one address book that merges, de-duplicates, and even adds images to contacts and also shares verified contact information to a user’s contacts.
