While the brand new showstopper Lenovo Yoga Book will be launched globally in September, it will not be launched in the US before the end of October says Lenovo. The price is $499 for the Android model and $549 for the Windows model. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_scat_1232597011
So people basically have up until October to figure out if the Lenovo Yoga Book really can be useful for them. And I imagine it will be to a lot of people.
Lenovo Yoga Book is a revolving 10.1-inch notebook with a non-detachable keyboard/pad where the keyboard is just a smooth surface that will show its keys when backlit and activated by the push of a button. Or you can draw on the “Create Pad” that the portion of the notebook is called, even through pieces of paper on top, so you can make hardcopies on the fly, while saving digital copies that can be shared with others instantly.
The “Create Pad” technology uses capacitive touch and EMR pen technology, while the display uses capacitive touch with AnyPen technology, so you can write onto the display too, with anything you like basically, from a ball point pen, to screwdriver or carrot.
But the Lenovo Yoga Book is a neat little performer otherwise too, with decent hardware specs for this type of device.
The Yoga Book has a 10.1-inch screen with 1920 x 1200 resolution, is powered by an Intel Atom “Cherry Trail” x5-Z8550 processor, and it has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, with additional microSD card support up to 128GB.
It has Dolby Audio Premium stereo speakers, a 2MP front camera, and a 8MP rear camera. And while it will come with optional 2G/3G/4G in some countries, most people will rely on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.
As far as sensors are concerned, the Lenovo Yoga Book has GPS, hall sensor, vibrator, g-sensor, and ambient light sensor. The Lenovo Yoga Book battery life is set to 13 hours by Lenovo, from the 8500 mAh Li-ion Polymer battery pack.
The thickness is just 9.6 mm which is quite good, while the weight is 690 grams.
Lenovo will actually sell paper refills with papers made to exactly fit the Yoga Book too, with 20 pages in each package. Not your every day tablet accessory there.
