Lenovo unveils thinnest, lightest 2-in-1 tablet

BERLIN (Germany), September 4, 2016

Lenovo has announced the launch of the Yoga Book, the world’s thinnest and lightest 2-in-1 tablet, designed for unmatched productivity while on-the-go.

Built for mobility and to solve the most common challenge among tablet users – how to achieve productivity and entertainment in one device – the Yoga Book is a tablet that looks and acts like no other, said a statement from the company.

Yoga Book introduces keyboard and handwriting input capability in an elegantly simple, unconventionally slender tablet design. Its unique design will offer tablet, 2-in-1 and traditional notebook buyers a first-of-its-kind option for evolving usage trends, it stated.  
“We set out to redefine the tablet category conundrum, namely that consumers no longer separate their activities into productivity and entertainment – it all blends together, and so should the device they use,” said Jeff Meredith, vice president and general manager, Android and Chrome Computing, Lenovo.

"With two panels that open up like an ultrathin notebook, the Yoga Book is unconventionally slender and light years removed from the tablet that you’re accustomed to using on the go or while sitting in your home," he noted.

As the world’s thinnest 2-in-1, the Yoga Book is 9.6mm closed, tapering to 4.05mm at its slimmest edge – a thickness of just under three pennies, said Meredith.

"And because it’s also the lightest 2-in-1 in the world at 690 gm, the Yoga Book is made to match the mobility of a smartphone, so you can easily hold and carry, just like a book," he added.

According to him, Yoga Book form offers a smooth, seamless transition between the four modes – Browse, Watch, Create and Type.

The Yoga Book with Android is available in Gold or Gunmetal, while the Windows version comes in Carbon Black.

The pricing for the Yoga Book will start at €499 ($558) for the Android version and €599 ($670) for the Windows version, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
