Yoga Book the Lenovo’s new 2-in-1 tablet winner of the ‘reddot’ design award 2016 brings a breath of fresh air to this uninspired segment where every device resembles another. The Yoga Book is beautifully designed and reinvents the way we use a tablet.
A tablet to replacing the paper notebook is wishful thinking but with this hybrid it’s a reality. It can be used as a laptop, tablet, media stand or as a note taking device.
The touch keyboard converts to a drawing tablet that you can use to draw or take notes. This enables you to do your day-to-day tasks by typing text using the backlit keyboard or quickly take and save notes using the pen stylus to write on the flat surface.
Using the Real pen you can draw with many pressure levels. Draw freely without having your hands covering the drawing, messing with it or triggering other options unintendedly.
The Note Saver app can store your notebooks where you can draw or save your notes.
The Halo keyboard can be used if you switch to type mode. This haptic feedback keyboard has an auto-complete and feature that allows you to type fast and accurately.
It is very handy to have a keyboard when you need one and having the full screen available to display text.
