The new Yoga Tablet 2 models focus on technology that adapts to users, making computing intuitive and fun. Still thin and light in all sizes, the tablets provide a new level of flexibility starting with the new Hang mode. Users can still enjoy the three original modes – Hold, Tilt and Stand – and now discover a fourth mode - Hang - that lets them hang their device to display content. Responding to customer feedback, Lenovo also improved the kickstand in Stand mode for more stability when pressing the 10-point multitouch screen.

In addition to the tablet’s responsive design, its performance specs got an upgrade. An Intel Atom processor supports the enhanced sound and camera features consisting of dual front speakers with cinematic Dolby Audio and Wolfson Master HiFi for clear sound with an 8 MP rear camera. The tablets also sport a number of useful features for connectivity with dual band WiFi and a micro USB with OTG connection that lets users charge their phone (requires separate cable). Additionally, users can enjoy extra long battery life for staying mobile longer in any of its four modes.

The Yoga Tablet 2 comes in three screen sizes and two operating systems so users can choose the model that’s right for them. For those who like the familiarity and productivity of Windows, Lenovo offers the Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows in Ebony-colored 8-in and 10-in models. They come with Microsoft Office 365 preloaded (1-year subscription) and with optional 4G on the 10-in model.

For those who prefer Android, Lenovo created the Yoga Tablet 2 in 8 and 10-inches as well as the new Yoga Tablet 2 Pro in 13-in running Android 4.4 Kit Kat in Platinum. For staying connected virtually anywhere, all the Android models offer optional 4G. These models come with Lenovo Premium Apps that let users easily share, sync and protect precious information on their tablet. SHAREit shares information instantly between multiple devices without network charges, and SYNCit backs up and restores contacts, SMS messages and call logs.

Our second generation Yoga Tablets give users the freedom to do more – go hands free and hang the tablet from the wall with the new Hang mode; get unparalleled sound on a tablet with loaded audio features; and choose the operating system that’s right for them - Android or Windows.

Yoga Tablet 2 Pro

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 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 HiFi ensure a multi-channel listening experience, just like the movies.

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 Atom 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, 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 the Brewster app that comes preloaded 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.
