Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+

Lenovo has announced that the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ that we scoped out back at MWC is now available for $369. Though you can order today, shipments aren't expected for another three weeks. The 10-inch tablet runs Android 4.3 (update to Android 4.4 KitKat shortly) and has a 1920 x 1200 HD display, not to mention a nice little built-in stand and an optional keyboard dock accessory. The whole thing is powered by a 1.6 Ghz Snapdragon 400 processor and 2 GB of RAM. You can expect 18 hours of battery life from the 9000 mAh battery.

It's safe to expect a lot more from Lenovo on the Android front now that they're picking up Motorola from Google. Hopefully that will entail launching new products with the latest OS version, as Motorola has consistently done.

How many of you guys are using Lenovo PCs right now? Do they have a shot at winning you over in the mobile sphere too, or is the Yoga 10 Tablet HD+ (that name's a mouthful, yes) not yet going to cut it?

My Lenovo laptop already doesn't have enough memory at 8GB.
However, this could still be a possible replacement for my Asus Transformer TF101.

One new source for Android Tablets is-- iProTablet - which features six new Android tablet models launching in May, all with high end specs, long battery life and many with the new Intel Bay Trail high performance processors... worth checking out.

Why not ship with Kit Kat? These companies drive me nuts. Is it really that hard to ship a new product with the latest OS.

The tablet was most likely in development before KitKat was released.

That's not really an excuse.

I bought the yoga pro 2 laptop late last year and they threw in last year's cheap little 8" android tablet. I have to say, I love it. The kick stand is awesome, the battery life unmatched and it's super thin. I only use for reading, email, and productivity apps, and am sure it would struggle with modern android games, but I like it for what it is and am in love with my yoga pro 2 laptop. I expect greatness from lenovo in the coming years.

Snapdragon 400? That's the same processor as the Moto G. For 369 that's a lame deal.

much bigger screen and battery but yeah, should be a bit cheaper. I think its still a better alternative to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 series.

I have been keeping an eye on this since it was announced back in February, as my 2012 Nexus 7 has started to feel too small, and the Yoga Tablet's cylindrical battery edge actually makes a nice grip for holding the 10" device with one hand, making it feel very weightless. I virtually never game on my mobile devices, they are almost purely web/media consumption machines for me, so the middling specs don't bother me. Still, I'm still not sure I'd get enough use out of it to justify the price, even though it's objectively quite reasonable even if you add in the keyboard dock (which I would probably want).

I bought the old 8" version for my son and he loves it. I was skeptical about Lenovo with the specs it showed but it's fluid and works great. I can only imagine with a better processor this new 10" will be even better. Looking forward to upgrading him soon.

I have the Yoga 8 Tablet. Before I purchased it, I read a lot of reviews about how slow it is, how the screen didn't have the highest resolution, yadda, yadda, yadda. Then I went to Youtube and watched some reviews there. Totally different story. These people were quite impressed with the tablet.

Now a few months later and it sits right next to my Sony Xperia Z tablet. Which one do I use more? The Yoga 8. I've never had a problem with speed. At all. The screen has rich colors and I find the resolution to be perfect for my old eyes. Even better, I do a lot of ebook reading on my tablet and its book-like shape makes holding it feel awesome. That said, I don't play games on it like I do my Xperia Tablet Z. I would welcome a faster processor in case I decided to do so.

This looks really nice! I just wouldn't need the tablet portion. Love the price point too

no interest in their mobile offerings (that could change but so far, no)
