Lenovo debuts 'smarter' Yoga tablets
Lenovo yesterday announced five new Yoga tablet offerings, with two of the devices featuring Google Assistant.
The technology company’s latest line-up of tablets was showcased at IFA 2019 in Berlin, with Lenovo focusing on generational improvements across its Yoga tablet range in 2019, to address three customer pain points: display, battery life and computing power.
It told the audience attending the Lenovo Tech Life event at IFA that the flagship Yoga C940 14-inch and 15-inch will start selling at a recommended retail price of EUR1 499 this month.
Lenovo also launched the C740, C640, S940 and S740 offerings in the Yoga tablet range. It said its vision of smarter technology for all is shaping its thinking around the Yoga and ThinkBook range of PCs.
In March, the International Data Corporation’s (IDC’s) Worldwide Quarterly Personal Computing Device Tracker found the market for detachable notebooks and tablets will grow modestly over the five-year forecast, with a compound annual growth rate of 4.6%.
It is the IDC’s view that this product category will have a stronger impact in the commercial segment, as vendors increasingly focus their attention on enterprise and education markets for their sales.
Lenovo also released the newest expansion to its Android tablet family, the Lenovo Tab M7 and Lenovo Tab M8, as the second generation of mainstream devices.
The company said the new 7-inch and 8-inch tablets represent this year’s follow-up to Lenovo’s mainstream tablets, which it says offer families a premium look and feel at an affordable price.
“The M series is a mid-level complement to the E and P tablet series launched last year, to give families a wider range of options from which to choose from and make smarter decisions about their technology.”
