Lenovo goes long on battery life with new Yoga Tablet line

Boot Camp feature for Monday, November 11, 2013

Lenovo goes long on battery life with its new Yoga Android Tablet line.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Consumers are faced with a wide range of choices when it comes to new tablets.   The new Yoga line from Lenovo introduces a new form….with a cylinder on one side that houses a beefed up battery and speakers…and added function…with a sturdy stand that swivels down from the back of the tablet.  There are 8 inch and 10 inch models priced at a friendly 250 and 300 dollars.   Lenovo North America President Jay Parker…

When you walk into a store today, a lot of things look exactly the same.  This will look very unique.  It will have a function to it.  And we believe it will help us break through in this category in the U.S..”

The cylinder that holds the long lasting battery…up to 18 hours…also serves as a grip for the tablet.   The display, while bright, is not the highest resolution on the market.  The 16 gigabyte tablets can be expanded with micro-SD cards.   You can find us at BootCamp.Com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
