Lenovo (HKSE: 0992) (ADR: LNVGY) today at the 2014 Mobile World Congress announced the new YOGA Tablet 10 HD+, a multimode Android device that takes Lenovo’s original Yoga Tablet to new heights with a premium mobile experience. The YOGA Tablet 10 HD+ refines the tablet’s unique design with Hold, Tilt and Stand Modes by infusing it with the latest technologies including a Full HD screen, Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor and sharp high resolution camera while maintaining its incredible up to 18 hours of battery life1.

New Features Advance Model for Multimode Tablet
While the original YOGA Tablet 10 broke the mold on the tablet design, the YOGA Tablet 10 HD+ refines this model for multimode tablets with new leading features. First, consumers will notice how the tablet’s 10.1-in 20/20 Vision display graphics seemingly pop off the screen. With Full HD 1920x1200 resolution, movies and photos look crystal clear and more like real life. Thanks to the new Smart Display, the tablet automatically adjusts the images and text on the screen to the ambient light, making it gentler on users’ eyes in all its modes.
Built for accessing multimedia on the go, apps and files load quickly thanks to its new Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with quad core CPU and large storage. Running Android 4.3, the tablet features rich Dolby® audio, 10 point multitouch, a micro USB port supporting on-the-go technology and an optional keyboard. For capturing mobile memories in even sharper pictures, the YOGA Tablet 10 HD+ comes equipped with a new high definition 8MP rear camera, ideal for snapping photos of friends, family and life’s precious moments.
Three Modes In One Tablet
Packed with even more valuable features, the YOGA Tablet 10 HD+ retains the key design and technologies users love about the original YOGA Tablet 10, starting with its incredible up to 18 hours of battery life1. The tablet’s signature three modes – Hold, Tilt and Stand – continue to give users a better way to use the tablet in nearly any situation. The tablet’s unique cylindrical battery allows them to hold it for reading or browsing the Internet, or they can place it in Tilt Mode for a better viewing angle on a desk or tablet. They can also deploy the new and improved kickstand that extends from the tablet’s battery cylinder to position it in Stand Mode. Stand Mode provides a more stable way to enjoy movies and photos without propping the tablet up with a cover and now stands upright from between 30 and 80.°
Do More With DOit Apps
Lenovo’s three DOit apps make sharing, synching and protecting data on the YOGA Tablet 10 HD+ simple. With SHAREit, users can instantly share pictures, videos, music files, documents, contacts and even apps with up to five devices without an Internet connection. It wirelessly transfers information or even the app itself between devices at up to 40x faster than Bluetooth®. SECUREit optimizes and protects users’ mobile data with its menu of data-protection tools. With a single touch, it protects against viruses, spam and malware, and if the tablet becomes lost or stolen, anti-theft protection locks it down. SECUREit acts as a privacy guard to protect against unwarranted access to users’ private information and also makes the tablet operate faster by taking actions such as closing redundant background apps.
SYNCit serves as a personal backup assist by backing up contacts, text messages and call logs in the cloud. Users can reload the content to their tablet or another Android device. SNAPit Camera gives users unprecedented flexibility for shooting in specific modes (such as panorama or burst mode) for wide-angle shots, low-light situations and more. It also offers special filters and effects. Users can then edit photos right inside the app: They can remove unwanted objects and even create fun, animated GIF files.
“Customers have told us they love the YOGA Tablet for its clever design that gives them a better way for all the different ways they use tablets,” said Jeff Meredith, vice president, marketing, Mobile Business Group, Lenovo. “Now we’ve created the new YOGA Tablet 10 HD+ to give consumers the ultimate multimode tablet experience, packing it with premium technologies from a gorgeous screen to faster processor to user-centric software.”
“We are pleased to continue our collaboration with Lenovo to deliver premium mobile experiences with superior battery life,” said Luis Pineda, senior vice president of business development, mobile computing, for Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Coupled with the unique design of the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor enables a stunning multimedia experience with HD video capture and playback, HD multichannel audio and seamless connectivity.”
The YOGA Tablet 10 HD+ will be available starting in April via major retailers and www.lenovo.com. Models start at $349.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...
