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.

The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are delivered as services. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to transi...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
