Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ is an upstanding slateThe 10 HD+ boasts a metal kickstand, that Lenovo says can be used in three configurations. It's super-thin and light to boot. Check out our hands-on video.
How do you make a tablet stand out from the crowd? Well, you can try literally making it stand up. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET and this is the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+. All right, so let's start by talking about this tablet killer characteristic and that's this metal kickstand on the back. Now what this means is that you can use the tablet in a couple of different configurations. You can have it in normal style holding it a little bit like a book, might be good for ebook reading. You can also flip the kickstand out and rest it up this way for watching some videos perhaps or you can turn it around the other way which makes for a comfortable angle for typing. So the screen measures 10.1 inches on the diagonal. It's got a really high resolution as well. Specifically this is 1920 x 1080 pixels. It looks very sharp and sweeping around some home screens and stuff. Everything feels very smooth and responsive too. I have to say I'm also quite impressed by how thin and light this tablet is. It's really, really skinny and I think if you put it in your bag you wouldn't really notice if you were carrying it around with you all day. On the front there's a 1.6-megapixel camera whereas around the back you get an 8-megapixel affair. It's got quite a lot of power under the hood with a quad-core 1.6 gigahertz processor. It comes in this tasteful champagne gold or a silver option, but those colors will be available in different parts of the world. This version isn't currently running the latest version of Android. It's running 4.3 Jelly Bean rather than 4.4 KitKat. However Lenovo tells me that it will be getting an update to the latest edition in early summer which is also when it goes on sale. One bit of good news is the price, it's not that expensive. It's gonna cost $349. However that's about $50 more than the previous version cost. We'll have to wait for the full review to find out whether the extra cost is really justified. What do you think of the design? What do you think of this metal kickstand? Please let me know.
