Over the past few years, we have seen a surge in novel permutations of what some would consider the traditional tablet. We have seen tablets get back their keyboards and notebooks transform into tablets, but these devices usually perform better in their original form. Adding a snap-on keyboard to a tablet just complicates its usage scenario, and flipping the screen of your notebook 360 degrees leaves you with an awkward keyboard on the bottom. Instead of trying to bridge the gap between the perfect tablet and perfect notebook, Lenovo's Yoga Book looks to redefine the space altogether.
The Yoga Book is the first device to have a fully digital keyboard/touchpad/Wacom digitizer where the traditional dome keyboard would go on a notebook. It allows you to seamlessly change the usage scenario of the device when and how you want. When you flip the Create Pad (digital panel) below the touchscreen, the Yoga Book becomes a real tablet, and when you flip the Create Pad out it becomes a neat little notebook.
Let's see what the Yoga Book is all about.
The Yoga Book comes in Andriod and Windows 10 versions, but today we are focusing on the Andriod version. The Yoga Book carries an Intel Atom x5-Z8550 quad-core processor, 4GB LPDDR3 RAM, 64GB built-in storage, a microSD card slot (supports up to 128GB of extra storage), a 8500mAh battery, a 10.1" IPS LED touchscreen with a resolution of 1920x1200, an 8MP autofocus rear camera, a 2MP fixed focus front facing camera, Wireless AC, and in some regions, support for a SIM card for mobile data.
The Andriod version comes in Carbon Black, GunMetal Gray (ours), and Champagne Gold. The unit has a metal body. The screen features capacitive touch with AnyPen technology while the Create Pad offers a capacitive touch digital keyboard (Halo Keyboard) and a Wacom digitizer with EMR Pen Technology. You can write on the screen with an actual ink pen (three ink refills are included). The unit also has some built-in sensors: vibrator, G-sensor, ambient light sensor, hall sensor, GPS, and A-GPS. The Create Pad offers a keyboard with haptic and audio feedback (you can turn them off) and offers 2048 pressure levels.
The Yoga Book with Android costs $499.99.
