Lenovo announces 8 and 10 inch Yoga tablets for $249 and $299

jhtrhrd-572x500Lenovo announced two new, 8 and 10 inch Multi-mode Yoga tablets sporting Quad Core MediaTek processor offering up to 18 hours of battery life. The design looks similar to Sony Xperia Tablet S with a round bulge on one side for better grip.

Lenovo says these Yoga tablets will feature three unique modes ( Hold, Stand and Tilt), giving consumers a better way to use a tablet.

“Watching and discovering that people frequently use tablets in three main ways allowed us to break the mold on the current ‘sea of sameness’ designs, giving them a better way to read, browse, watch and interact with content”

Hold Mode – Designed to fit an individual’s hand
