Lenovo vindt het tablet concept opnieuw uit met revolutionaire Yoga™ Book – de 2-in-1 tablet

Verder wordt de Yoga-portfolio vernieuwd met de Yoga 910 convertible laptop en de Yoga Tab 3 Plus Android Tablet

Beste redactie,

Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) heeft vandaag de Yoga Book geïntroduceerd en kondigde vandaag tevens de nieuwe Yoga 910 convertible laptop en Yoga Tab 3 Plus Android Tablet aan. Om tegemoet te komen aan de steeds veranderende verwachting van de klant, heeft Lenovo zijn laatste producten ontwikkeld op basis van uitgebreid gebruikersonderzoek en -feedback.

Yoga Book

Deze nieuwe 2-in-1 tablet is ontworpen om te voorzien in de belangrijkste behoefte van mobiele gebruikers: ontspanning en productiviteit verenigen in één tablet. Tot vandaag werden tablets gebruikt voor

activiteiten waar ze niet op gebouwd zijn. Gebruikers die productief wilden zijn met een tablet, hebben ervaren dat dit vaak pijnlijk en moeilijk was. De Yoga Book neemt deze moeilijkheden weg en combineert de elementen van een uitstekende tablet – draagbaarheid, een grote mate van autonomie en een rijk app-ecosysteem – met de kenmerken van een productiviteitsgericht toestel met krachtige nieuwe hardware en software, waaronder:

· het halo toetsenbord

· de stylus voor dubbel gebruik, die kan schrijven op papier en op het scherm

· de productiviteitsgerichte gebruikersinterface

· het dunne en lichte ontwerp met 360°-scharnier

· de batterij met een levensduur van 15 uur

Yoga 910

Op IFA kondigde Lenovo vandaag de nieuwste generatie van zijn internationaal gelauwerde en multifunctionele Yoga convertible laptop aan. De 13.9-inch Yoga 910 borduurt voort op het succes van de Yoga 900 en

is ’s werelds dunste convertible laptop uitgerust met een Intel® Core™ i7 processor en Windows® 10 software. Lenovo laat de keuze tussen een 4K of full HD scherm, biedt een nagenoeg randvrij beeldscherm (5mm rand) met 10 procent meer schermruimte en een 14 procent toename in resolutie. Muziek en geluid zijn bij de Yoga 910 met Dolby Audio™ Premium verbeterd. Met tot wel 15.5 uur aan batterij, kunnen gebruikers werken of films kijken zonder zich zorgen te maken over hun batterijduur. Verder heeft de Yoga 910 een ingebouwde fingerprint reader die zorgt voor verbeterde beveiliging, en is het uitgerust met de kenmerkende en verbeterde scharnierband.

Yoga Tab 3 Plus

De unieke Yoga Tab 3-portfolio wordt op IFA uitgebreid met de Yoga Tab 3 Plus, wat opnieuw de benchmark verhoogt in wat de ultieme tablet voor (video) entertainment moet zijn. De Yoga Tab 3 Plus is uitgerust met een 10.1-inch scherm met Technicolor™ kleurverbetering, Dolby Atmos® driedimensionaal geluid met

vier naar voren gerichte JBL speakers en vier afzonderlijke weergavestanden. Met Lenovo Media Cast, kunnen gebruikers ook audio (via Bluetooth®) en video (via Miracast®) streamen vanaf een ander apparaat. Zo hebben ze de beste kwaliteit scherm en speakers, waar ze ook zijn. Verder komt de Yoga Tab 3 Plus met een 9300 mAh smart power management batterij die 18 uur batterijduur biedt en een 24w snel-lader.

Lenovo Miix 510

Ten slotte lanceert Lenovo op IFA zijn Miix 510 dat de functionaliteit van een tablet uitbreidt met het comfort en de handigheid van een full-size toetsenbord. Door de Miix 510 van dit toetsenbord los te koppelen, leent het zich perfect voor online entertainment. Lees alles over de Lenovo Miix 510 via: http://bit.ly/2bJgzw4.

New Lenovo Yoga 910 Convertible Laptop and Yoga Tab 3 Plus Android Tablet Launch at IFA

· Lenovo extends its Yoga family with a new Windows® 10 PC and Android™ tablet – each developed through extensive customer feedback.

· Yoga 910 convertible laptop is the world’s thinnest Intel® Core™ i convertible1 with up to 15.5 hours2 of battery life to match on-the-go lifestyles.

· Yoga Tab 3 Plus is the ideal entertainment tablet for movie and TV lovers on the go, offering a pristine 2K display, theater-caliber JBL® speakers and over 18 hours3 of battery life.

BERLIN, Germany – Aug. 31, 2016Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced the expansion of its multimode Yoga family with the new Yoga 910 convertible laptop and Yoga Tab 3 Plus Android tablet. Today’s PC customer is constantly challenged by the demands of quickly evolving consumer lifestyles, an evolving workplace and digital demands. To meet this continuous shift of consumer expectations, Lenovo has built its latest Yoga products based on extensive user research and feedback. That’s why each new Yoga range adds new technology, like the Yoga 910 fingerprint reader that simplifies PC log-in.

Yoga 910 is World’s Thinnest Intel Core i Convertible1 with More Power and Convenience than Ever Before

Our latest ultra-thin convertible laptop at just 14.3mm is also one of the most powerful convertibles around with up to Intel’s latest 7th Gen Core i7 processor. For many Yoga users, their convertible has become the primary platform for work and entertainment. That’s why we’ve upgraded the Yoga 910 with the choice of a new 4K or Full HD screen. Both options feature a near edgeless display (5mm bezel) that offers 10 percent4 more screen area, a 14 percent5 increase in pixel density compared to the previous model for sharper, clearer images, and 100 percent sRGB color gamut coverage for users to see a wide range of colors when viewing photos and videos. Music and sound are enhanced on the Yoga 910 with Dolby Audio™ Premium. With up to 15.5 hours of battery,users can work or watch movies without worrying about battery life.4

As customers demand more convenient authentication options, Lenovo has embedded an advanced fingerprint reader into the Yoga 910 – designed to bring mobile convenience and improved security to the PC. With the touch of a finger, users can quickly log onto their PC using Windows Hello™ – no long passwords required. Lenovo App Explorer also lets users personalize with popular apps, like Skype®, Facebook® or Netflix®.

We’ve added a new all-metal unibody casing – in Champagne Gold, Platinum Silver and Gunmetal – for a luxurious look and portability no matter where users take it. It maintains the Yoga convertible series’ signature watchband hinge and flexible usage modes – enabling users to type in laptop mode, present in stand mode, watch videos in tent mode or browse in tablet mode. The watchband hinge now provides an even smoother, more accurate transition between its modes. Paired with the sleek Yoga mouse (sold separately) that doubles as a remote control, the Yoga 910 puts high-end performance, portability and versatility into a thin and stylish 13.9-inch convertible laptop.

Yoga Tab 3 Plus’ Amazing Screen and Sound Replaces Your TV – Anywhere

The newest addition to the Yoga Tab 3 series brings a complete cinematic entertainment experience to Yoga tablet users at all price points. With many users watching marathon sessions of their favorite TV shows and movies on their tablets wherever they go, the need for a device that offers a high quality audio and visual experience, total flexibility for different environments and a long-lasting battery was clear.

The Yoga Tab 3 Plus offers a10.1-inch 2K display with Technicolor™ Color Enhance, Dolby Atmos® three dimensional sound from four front-facing JBL speakers and four separate viewing modes. With Lenovo Media Cast, users can also stream audio (via Bluetooth®) and video (via Miracast®) to the Yoga Tab 3 Plus from another device, providing the best quality screen and speakers to share with their friends and family, wherever they are. The Yoga Tab 3 Plus continues the series’ signature provision of total flexibility, with four modes to deliver complete portability wherever the user is watching: stand, tilt, hold or hang. The Yoga Tab 3 Plus comes equipped with a 9300 mAh smart power management battery offering over 18 hours of battery life3 along with a 24w fast charger.

Consumers want to be able to choose the form factor that best meets their lifestyle needs, not adapt their lifestyle to new technology,” said Johnson Jia, Lenovo’s senior vice president, PC & Smart Device Business Group. “And the Yoga range will continue to drive PC innovation forward. But we can’t take all the credit – we thank our customers for their continuous feedback. These products are here because of our customers and we are confident the new Yoga 910 will meet their expectations.”

Lenovo Reveals the Yoga™ Book – the 2-in-1 tablet for Productivity and Creativity

Yoga Book Re-Examines How a Tablet Should Look and Act, with Never-Before-Seen Features Such as an Instant Halo Keyboard and a Dual-Use Stylus That Writes on Paper and Screen

· The Yoga Book harnesses the best of the tablet while introducing new productivity and creative hardware and software, with halo keyboard feature, real-pen accessory and Book UI.

· The Yoga Book’s halo keyboard feature weaves software and hardware into one interface, allowing for a typing experience that far surpasses conventional tablets and matches that of physical keyboards.

· Drawing inspiration from the elegance and simplicity of notebooks, the Yoga Book’s real-pen accessory allows users to write and draw with pen and paper while instantly digitizing their notes and sketches.

· The Yoga Book’s thin and light design, 15-hour battery life and 360-degree watchband hinge gives on-the-go tablet users the freedom to write and draw anywhere, matching the mobility of a smartphone without having to carry a laptop or detachable.

· The Yoga Book, available on both Android and Windows, is the world’s thinnest and lightest 2-in-1 tablet, and a direct response to user demands for a better experience for productivity on tablets.

BERLIN, Germany – Aug. 31, 2016 – Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today launched the Yoga Book, the world’s thinnest and lightest 2-in-1[1] tablet, designed for unmatched productivity while on-the-go. Built for mobility and to solve the most common challenge among tablet users – how to achieve productivity and entertainment in one device – the Yoga Book is a tablet that looks and acts like no other. Up until now, we’ve been using tablets in ways we weren’t meant to: for productivity, for example, which becomes painful when typing or applying a stylus onto a touch screen that you’re using on-the-go. The Yoga Book removes that difficulty by taking the fundamental building blocks from the DNA of what makes a great tablet – namely portability, long battery life and a rich app ecosystem – and entwines it into a strand of creativity and productivity through a suite of powerful new hardware and software features, including:

· The instant halo keyboard

· The dual-use stylus that writes on paper and screen

· The productivity-driven Book UI

“We set out to redefine the tablet category conundrum, namely that consumers no longer separate their activities into productivity and entertainment – it all blends together, and so should the device they use,” said Jeff Meredith, vice president and general manager, Android and Chrome Computing, Lenovo. “The Yoga Book introduces keyboard and handwriting input capability in an elegantly simple, unconventionally slender tablet design. We believe our unique design will offer tablet, 2-in-1 and traditional notebook buyers a first-of-its-kind option for evolving usage trends.”

Ultra-Thin and Light

With two panels that open up like an ultrathin notebook, the Yoga Book is unconventionally slender and light years removed from the tablet that you’re accustomed to using on the go or while sitting in your home. As the world’s thinnest 2-in-1, the Yoga Book is 9.6mm closed, tapering to 4.05mm at its slimmest edge – a thickness of just under three pennies. And because it’s also the lightest 2-in-1 in the world at 690 grams (1.52 pounds), the Yoga Book is made to match the mobility of a smartphone, so you can easily hold and carry, just like a book. Users who take the Yoga Book with them on day trips have the option to work anywhere – on a busy commute, in a packed waiting room or on a crowded countertop – if and when they feel like it, thanks to the thin and light design, 15-hour[2] battery life and a watchband hinge that folds 360 degrees. And if users don’t feel like working, they’ll have a top-of-the-line entertainment tablet to keep them company, with a 10.1-inch IPS FHD screen, high-quality sound enhanced with Dolby Atmos® and 64GB of memory.

Instant Halo Keyboard

The Yoga Book’s first productivity feature is also what makes the thin and light design possible: the halo keyboard, a full touch screen backlit keyboard that weaves software and hardware into one fluid interface. The touch screen is made with glass that was meticulously chosen to give a rough, matte feel and finish, along with anti-glare coating to ensure the best possible touch-typing experience. The keyboard lacks any physical keys, showing up as a solid white outline on the Yoga Book’s second panel only when it’s needed. The halo keyboard constantly ‘learns about and adapts to’ the typing habits of its user, with built-in prediction and artificial learning software. This software also allows for continuous optimization. Along with built-in, sensitive haptic technology, which enables touch feedback to guide typing and reduce mistakes, the halo keyboard far surpasses the typing experience and speed of a normal tablet, and is comparable with that of a physical keyboard.

Real-Pen Accessory – Dual Use Stylus

The flush surface of the halo keyboard feature also allows for a few additional uses when paired with the Yoga Book’s standard real-pen accessory, a dual-use stylus. Inspired by the elegance and simplicity of real notebooks, Yoga Book is an acknowledgement that we all still love to write and draw on paper. Users can now write with the real-pen accessory that holds real ink tips onto a piece of paper or notepad covering the multi-use keyboard panel, or as a stylus when applied straight onto the panel. Everything they create, from doodles and drawings to notes, is instantly digitized and saved with the Lenovo note-saving app.[3] Roughly the size of a conventional ink pen, the real-pen accessory is powered by Wacom feel™ IT technologies to work with the state-of-the-art electro-magnetic resonance (EMR) film housed within the multi-use keyboard, which enables this real-time digitization.

The multi-use keyboard and real-pen accessory recreate the natural feel of drawing flat on a paper surface instead of directly onto a computer screen, without having to block parts of the art work with the hand or stylus. Or you can draw directly on the screen as well, depending on preference. The real-pen accessory can draw with the precision of a pencil or paintbrush, with 2,048 pressure levels and 100-degree angle detection. In addition, you’ll never have to charge or replace it – the real-pen accessory doesn’t require batteries and its ink can be replaced with standard ink tips, just like that of a conventional pen.

Book UI and Hinge

As a 2-in-1 that weaves together both hardware and software, Yoga Book truly brings work and play into one tablet through the Book UI, the Yoga Book’s specially adapted Android 6.0 operating system that draws from the best UI features of laptops and tablets. The Book UI allows several apps to run at once through multiple windows that can be pinned, maximized or minimized, as well as a taskbar that keeps track of your apps and common Windows keyboard shortcuts and action keys. This additional new workload is easily handled by the Yoga Book’s powerful Intel® Atom™ X5 processor and 4GB of memory. And Windows users also have the option to work on that platform, as the Yoga Book is available on Windows 10.

Constructed from a combination of magnesium and aluminium alloys, the Yoga Book is robust in build and guaranteed to turn heads. As with all Yoga products, it has the distinctive watchband-style hinge. This time, the hinge is engineered to be smaller and features a custom-made three-axis hinge, with 130 different mechanical pieces comprising five different materials. Lab tested more than 25,000 times, the Yoga Book form offers a smooth, seamless transition between the four modes – Browse, Watch, Create and Type. The Yoga Book with Android is available in Gold or Gunmetal, while the Yoga Book with Windows comes in Carbon Black.

Pricing for the Yoga Book will start at €499 for the Android version and €599 for the Windows version. Pricing and availability may vary from country to country. All will be globally available beginning in September. In the US, the Yoga Book will be sold online by the end of October.
