If you’re up to get something with higher specs than Lenovo’s Tab A-Series, then check out their other recent release, the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+. As the name suggests, this is a member of Lenovo’s multi-mode product line. Let’s check it out, shall we?
Yoga Tablet 10 HD+: Specs and Features
This flexible Android tablet packs a 10.1-inch Full HD IPS display with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and wide-viewing angles (178 degrees, according to the specs sheet). It’s available in two models, 3G and WiFi-only, and each model will feature different CPUs. The 3G model will have a 1.6 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8228 quad-core processor, while the WiFi-only model will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 APQ8028 quad-core processor – don’t worry, it has the same clock speed. Both models will pack 2 GB of LP-DDR2 RAM and will be offered in two storage options: 8 GB and 16 GB variants.
Other features include a 1.6 MP front-facing camera, an 8 MP rear-facing camera, a micro USB port, and a microSD card slot that can support up to 64 GB of extra space. Both models will have WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, though the 3G model will sport a micro SIM card slot. Both models will have a fairly large 9000 mAh battery which can last up to 18 hours of use on a single charge – at least, according to Lenovo’s spec sheet.
The Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ will ship with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but is upgradeable to 4.4 KitKat via an OTA update. Like most of Lenovo’s Yoga tablets of late, this baby will feature three usage modes: Hold, Tilt, and Stand. It stands on fat cylindrical end with the help of a little built-in kickstand. It will be available in two colors: silver and gold. It will also have some useful accessories, including a MiraCast dongle, a Bluetooth keyboard cover, and colored sleeves.
Pricing and Availability
According to reports, the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ should hit the shelves this month and will start at US $349. The KitKat update, on the other hand, is due in May.
Overall, it looks like a pretty decent tablet – especially since it sports definite upgrades from its predecessors, the Yoga Tablet 10 and the Yoga Tablet 8. It may prove to be a nice all-day tablet, at least on paper. We’ll have to see how it performs in real world conditions once it hits the shelves.
