The tablets also feature a kickstand that allows the devices to have three different configurations, including a “Read mode” where the stand is closed, a “Stand mode” in which the stand is open propping up the tablet in a similar fashion as the Surface tablets and a “Tilt mode” wherein the tablet is laid flat on its back at an angle that’s best suited for on-screen typing.

The Lenovo Yoga comes in either 8-inch or 10-inch model and sports a quad-core MediaTek processor, 720p screen resolution, 16GB of built-in storage and a textured plastic back. Both tablets will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Lenovo’s custom overlay that recommends specific apps that are best suited for the mode you’re in.
