Lenovo has just announced two new Yoga series tablets for the American market. These 8 and 10 inch tablets might not appeal to the specs crazy, but might do a fair bit of noise in the budget tablet segment considering the price. Lenovo has priced the 8 inch tablet at $249 while the 10 inch variant costs $299. Both feature a slightly under powered hardware compared to the likes of the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX and the Google Nexus 7. As you can see from the image above, the design has received much emphasis as we’ve seen with Lenovo’s Yoga series of devices before. The tablets here come with a curved back as well as a kickstand which makes for a pleasurable reading or media viewing experience. The tablet runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Lenovo’s custom skin on top which according to The Verge is very familiar to iOS. Both the tablets will start selling immediately in the U.S. through Best Buy.
Both the tablets come with a resolution of 1280×800 which is quite average in this day and age. Also on board the tablets are a quad core MediaTek MT8125 chip clocked in at 1.2 GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 5MP cameras on the back and dual speakers on the front with Dolby certification. The 8 inch variant will sport a 6,000 mAh battery while the larger sibling will come with a 9,000 mAh battery which according to Lenovo will offer close to 16-18 hours of usage.
