Yoga 2

Tablets have made people more flexible when it comes to work. With its handy size, multi-tasking is more manageable now and work can be done even outside the confines of offices. Leisure and entertainment has also been made personalized with people getting hold of their own tablets and enjoying various available applications.

During this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), there is one brand of tablet that has made a lot of buzz. It got hailed as the best tablet among a whole lot of other brands displayed in the biggest electronics exhibit in the world. It’s no other than Lenovo’s Yoga Tablet 2 with AnyPen.

Sometimes it’s such a frustration to navigate through our tablets because the icons might just be too small for us that we accidentally press what we don’t really need to or our screen’s not just that touch sensitive enough. That’s why others use a stylus. However it is not surprising if that gets lost considering how small it is.

It’s amazing how Lenovo solved this problem with its AnyPen feature. Now you can continue using your tablet even without your stylus. As long as you have any pointed metal in your house, you’re good to go. On the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with AnyPen you can use scissors, fork, pencils or literally anything that conducts an electrical charge from your hand. Of course that’s not the only thing that this 8” tablet has to boast because it has a lot more to say.


You might be thinking that it’s crazy to use a fork on your tablet’s screen because it might leave off nasty scratches. That’s not a worry because Lenovo’s Yoga tablet 2’s screen is even crazier. The screen is made up of tempered glass that rivals even Gorilla glass and that as long as you’re not aggressively digging into it, scratches are not a problem. Also, it has an 8” Full HD Display that promises crisp visuals.


Lenovo Yoga tablet 2 is sleek and thin and has a bulky cylinder at the base for its battery. This does not actually hinder the thinness of its design but rather adds more to its functionality. The placement of the bulky cylinder makes it easier to grip when you’re only using one hand. With a thin metal at the back, it is also used as a stand if you’re tired of holding your tablet and prefer to sit back and relax. The battery also has an epic life of 15 to 18 hours. You can go on using your Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 in an entire day and even throughout the night without charging.


Of course we all know that electronics is not all about the outside. Lenovo proves itself the best inside and out by its awesome specs. At the heart of the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 is an Intel Atom Quad core processor. It has 2GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, and a micro SD slot for an expandable storage of up to 64GB. Music is booming when played out of the Dolby audio and Master Hi-Fi enhanced speakers that are large chambered, front facing and found in the bottom left and right of the tablet. It also has an 8 megapixel camera at the back of the base, adjacent to the kickstand and a 1.6 megapixel camera in front that’s good for video calls. And For all you windows lovers, this tablet is right for you since it premieres with the 8.1 windows as its operating system.
