MWC14: Lenovo's New $349 Yoga 10 HD+ Tablet Hands On

We had an opportunity to meet with Lenovo at Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona and to see what new products they were showing off. One product that we found incredibly interesting was the new Yoga 10 HD+ tablet from Lenovo which is an update on the original Yoga Tablet 10" HD tablet. We met with Keith Liu from Lenovo who gave us a great rundown about the product.

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ has a 1,920 x 1,200 IPS display, a quad-core 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 2GB of RAM and an 8-megapixel front camera. These are are all significant improvements over the previous model’s 1,280 x 800 screen, 1.2GHz MediaTek processor 1GB RAM and 5-megapixel camera. But, the Lenovo Yoga tablet still keeps the original tablet’s 9,000mAh battery, which means that it should still get amazing battery life. According to Lenovo, it can get up to 18 hours of battery life, but more than a full day is good enough for most people. The tablet itself also has a microSD card slot and a SIM card slot for global 3G connectivity, not only making it a very cheap tablet at $349 but also one that has great battery life and storage capacity.

As you can tell, the tablet is very impressive and it feels very light in the hand when held by the battery on the side. The use cases for this Yoga tablet are almost infinite and it feels like the best tablet I have ever held in my hands at $349 and still sporting a full HD 10" display, which isn’t easy to do when you consider that most displays with similar specs are generally more expensive, especially the 3G modem connectivity.
