Lenovo teases Windows 8 reversible Yoga tablet/laptop

The Chinese company is rumored to be working on a Windows RT convertible laptop, and now it says the Yoga is on the way.


Namaste! Lenovo says the IdeaPad Yoga, its folding, reversible tablet/laptop hybrid running Windows 8, is coming soon.

The company this morning tweeted a shot of the device -- which we first saw at CES in January -- along with the simple message "It won't be long now."

The tease comes on the heels of rumors that the Chinese company is developing a convertible laptop/tablet that will run Windows RT, a more limited version of Windows 8 designed for ARM-based devices.

The Yoga comes with a keyboard that folds around almost 360 degrees to hide and transform itself into a tablet. If the Yoga and the mysterious convertible Windows RT tablet are one and the same, it would likely compete directly with Microsoft's own Surface tablets.

While the Surface can dock with a keyboard to make the transition from tablet to laptop, the real question is, can it do a sun salutation?
