Full Disclosure: Lenovo provided the product samples used in this article. But we had to send them back after the review process.

When you think of “yoga”, you probably envision people twisting themselves into different positions. Like the experienced yoga practitioner, Lenovo’s new Yoga tablets have the ability to assume different forms depending on what you’re doing with them.

The Android-based tablet market is exploding, with new entries almost every day. We’re even seeing what once were dedicated e-readers, like the Nook and Kindle, re-marketed as general purpose tablets. Lenovo’s been in this market for a while, and thus it’s no surprise to see them introduce another entry, the Lenovo Yoga tablet computers.


A tablet computer, by definition, must be a flat “slate” form factor. Or must it? Lenovo sent us both the 8″ and 10″ screen versions of their new Yoga tablets, so let’s see what they’ve got and how they compare to the rest of the tablet market.
