Lenovo announced the new Yoga tablet last night. Here are five fast facts you need to know.
1. The Tablet Can Be Adjusted For Several Different Modes
Last night, Lenovo revealed the Yoga tablet to a packed audience in Los Angeles. Taking inspiration from their line of laptops, the tablet has a cylindrical handle which allows for different modes. For example, the “hold” mode can turn the handle for a comfortable grip when reading ebooks or be adjusted to launch a kickstand while watching movies.
2. The Yoga Tablet Has A Powerful Battery
After maneuvering the tablet for the best level of comfort, you’ll notice the large built-in battery. The Yoga’s core is capable of holding a charge for 18 hours. The 2-cell Li-Polymer power cell is what Lenovo feels is the reason why they can brag about this feature.
3. Other Features Include Two High-Res Cameras
Rounding out the rest of the package are two high-res cameras on the front and back. For the front, the 1.6 megapixel camera supports the 5 megapixel feature found on the back. A Micro-USB port for charging is located on the front of the Yoga. Ports located next to the Micro-USB are a microSD storage expansion slot, a headphone jack and a volume rocker.

Kutcher will serve as the spokesperson for the device and has officially become a product engineer for the company.
