This new Android laptop-tablet hybrid brings a super-slim design, 12.2-inch display, mid-range specifications, 360-degree hinge, and of course, Lenovo’s signature “halo” keyboard.
The Lenovo Yoga A12 might actually be the first decent Android tablet since the fabled second-generation Nexus 7. Lenovo Yoga A12 costs just $300, sports an Intel Atom processor, and has a laughably low-resolution screen. it sports a 12.2-inch IPS display, albeit running at 1280 x 800.
The A12 is thicker than most tablets, 360-degree 2-in-1 design, touch keyboard. The laptop-like design makes it seem like a laptop, but the typing experience is similar to typing on glass, not on a real keyboard. The Halo keyboard has a Home key instead of a Windows key, and some nice Android/device-specific function keys.
Lenovo Yoga A12 Specification
The tablet features an Intel Atom x5 chip, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, two Dolby Atmos speakers, and up to 13 hours of battery life, so working all day long on a single charge should be possible.The new device weighs less than 2.2lbs (1kg) and opens to 5.4mm at its thinnest point
A12 supports both full-screen and floating app windows. When full-screen, apps look and work as they do on any Android tablet. But when you restore these windows they appear like phone apps.
Perhaps the biggest question worth thinking about at this point is whether you prefer Chrome OS or Android itself if you’re in the mood to use Android apps on a tablet with a keyboard. While you think about that, Lenovo is going ahead and providing options for you to choose from, either way.
