Lenovo Yoga Book Brings Its Innovative Awesomeness to the Market Next Week

Monday, December 19, 2016 12:37:09 AM Asia/Calcutta

http://tablet-news.com/2016/10/10/lenovo-yoga-book-brings-its-innovative-awesomeness-to-the-market-next-week/

Lenovo Yoga Book is to the year 2016 what the Surface Book 2 was to the year 2015: an original piece of gear that came out of nowhere, looks stunning and fitting within a niche that we didn’t even know we had. Anyways, the Yoga Book was showcased at IFA 2016 last month and it’ll debut in stores next week.

The device stands out through the fact that aside from having a main screen, it also brings a secondary panel, that can even transcribe notes written on real paper put above it. You’ll need to use a stylus with real ink for that. The same second screen shows a virtual keyboard with haptic feedback and it’ll appear and disappear when you need it/not need it.

Lenovo Yoga Book has a 10.1 inch Full HD screen, an Intel Atom x5-Z8550 processor, a quad core unit clocked at 2.4 GHz, plus 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. There’s Android Marshmallow as the OS here, but there’s also a Windows 10 version of the device, for the sake of variety. An 8500 mAh juices up both screens. Inkless styli are also available for this contraption.

Yoga Book is on preorder now, starting at $499. US shipments start on October 17th.

Samsung Gets Patent for Complex Scrollable Display, That Expands Size

Thursday, December 15, 2016 5:29:07 AM Asia/Calcutta

http://tablet-news.com/2016/12/14/samsung-gets-patent-for-complex-scrollable-display-that-expands-size/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TabletNews+%28Tablet+News%29

The US Patent and Trademark Office awarded Samsung with a new patent this week, one that has to do with a rollable display device, that relies on a flexible display panel. It can be rolled up for retraction into a housing. It’s a bit more complex than usual, so we detail it after the break.

 

The rollable thingie can be unrolled if you’re planning to use it in a flat config. This next gen display could offer consumers a compact form factor and a generous scrollable and rollable screen. The mechanics of the rollable screen are the focus of the patent and no wireless capability is mentioned here. This could end up as a tablet or a smartphone, nothing is sure right now.

 

A jig is mentioned as connected to one end of the flexible display panel and it’ll have an outer circumferential surface on which the flexible display will be rolled around. A handle is also connected to the other end of the flexible screen panel and a support unit is used between the handle and housing. I see there’s also an area used to hold/grab the device, much like a Lenovo Yoga tablet would have.

Such devices were usually seen in sci-fi movies in the cockpit of a starship or a thing like that. It all feels like a big scroll, but this concept has a tendency to break in real life.

Unveiled at IFA 2016 and receiving a ton of compliments and appreciation, the Lenovo Yoga Book has just reached India, where it’s available for $740. We already reviewed the device here, in its Android version and we were totally impressed by its original format and fantastic touch keyboard/touchpad.

 lenovo-yoga-book-feature-os-windows

You should know that this product is available with either Windows 10 or Android Marshmallow and that it bundles a stylus called Real Pen, ready to offer real ink for you to write with. It has a superb hinge connecting the two sides, each 4 mm in thickness and said hinge lets the screen part be rotated at 360 degrees. This triggers usage patterns like tent, fully open and of course “notebook”.

Made of magnesium and aluminum, this 10.1 incher offers a Full HD resolution and a reasonable brightness. Performance is also pretty good, aided by an Intel Atom X5 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. The product has a good battery life of around 8 hours of continuous usage, not bad at all for an 8 mm device, that also includes a touch keyboard.

The best part of the device is that you can use its touchpad to turn ink written notes to digital ones. Just overlap the bundled notepad on the touchpad and write on its paper using the Real Pen and its ink cartridges and then everything will appear on the screen.

http://tablet-news.com/2016/12/09/odin2-is-both-a-mini-tablet-and-projector-mixed-together-already-got-funded-on-indiegogo-and-coming-in-june-2017/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TabletNews+%28Tablet+News%29

Today we’ve come across a very interesting tablet/projector hybrid, a device called Odin2, that will be able to put your favourite movies on the wall or canvas with ease. It handles Netflix, Amazon Prime, BBC iPlayer and more and it’s already reached its goal of funding on Indiegogo.

The Odin2 has a 5 inch touchscreen for control purposes and it runs on Android 6.0, so you can use it as a mini tablet. Video calls are also available, plus you can mess around with Spotify, Tidal, or Apple Music, enjoying the tunes from the 2 cm diameter speaker. Specs include a quad core chipset, 2 GB of RAM and apparently you can even plug in an Xbox or PlayStation console and play games on a bigger diagonal.

There’s autofocus here, a microSD card slot, HDMI of course and the camera and microphone let you perform video and voide calls. The LED light source on the Odin2 generates 300 lumens of brightness and we also get a native HD resolution of 720p and a max resolution of 1080p. The light source is said to last over 30,000 hours, which is quite impressive.

Odin2 achieves a 37 inch screen size from 1 yard and a 110 inch screen size from 3 yards. The price of a product is $525 via Indiegogo and shipping happens in June 2017.

http://tablet-news.com/2016/12/07/nuvision-duo-10-is-a-2-in-1-windows-10-tablet-priced-at-299-and-sporting-a-cherry-trail-cpu/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TabletNews+%28Tablet+News%29

There’s a new 10.1 inch tablet in town, an Intel Cherry Trail model with Windows 10 on board, a pretty typical hardware setup if you ask me. The thing is that this model is more of a 2 in 1 affair, as it only feels complete with a keyboard attached. It’s dubbed the NuVision Duo 10 and I have to admit I haven’t heard of this brand till now.

duo_00

 

Apparently they made the news a while ago by launching a Full HD tablet priced at just $99. Now they’re back with a $299 product, that relies on an Intel Chery Trail x5-Z8300 Cherry Trail chipset, 2 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage and WiFi 802.11ac. There’s also Bluetooth 4.0 here, an USB Type C port, two USB 2.0 ports and a micro HDMI as well.

The slate has a 5 megapixel back camera, a 2 MP front shooter and a fingerprint scanner integrated next to the touchpad from the keyboard. NuVision Duo 10 offers a 1280 x 800 pixel res on an IPS panel and we also get a stylus to work with this panel. What sets this device apart from other Cherry Trail Win 10 tablets are the finger scanner, stylus and keyboard inclusion in the bundle.

The product is available on the Microsoft Store.

http://tablet-news.com/2016/12/03/samsung-galaxy-tab-a-9-7-gets-price-cut-to-265-in-usa-still-one-of-the-most-solid-tablet-batteries-we-tested/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TabletNews+%28Tablet+News%29

Some of you may not remember the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 as a special tablet, but I do. It has one of the most solid tablet batteries I’ve tested, on account of achieving a huge result in PCMark. Now the device has received a price cut, down to $265, available in USA.

image744

 

Amazon has the 16 GB model at this price, available in white and only with WiFi. Listed at $264.90 on the retailer’s site, this sum is $35 less than the usual asking price of $300. Powered by a quad core 1.2 GHz chipset and sporting a 1024 x 768 pixel screen, the model also gets 1.5 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, plus a 5 megapixel main shooter and 2 MP front cam.

There’s a 6000 mAh battery on board and the preinstalled Microsoft apps are a nifty added bonus. The screen is bright, the speakers are loud and there was no lag when we tested the device. It could also run any game from the Play Store then. We criticized its high price and well, that’s no longer a problem, so feel free to purchase it here.

http://tablet-news.com/2016/11/25/indias-tablet-shipments-somehow-grew-7-8-in-q3-2016-according-to-idc-datawind-still-number-one-brand/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TabletNews+%28Tablet+News%29

There are a few markets on the planet where tablets continued to grow in Q3 2016 and India is one of those markets. Apparently, the slate market in the country grew 7.8% in Q3, judging by the IDC data. The charge was lead by Datawind and more details are mentioned below.

1.06 million tablets and detachables were shipped in India in the third quarter, which represents stagnation from the previous Q3 of 2015, but it’s a growth over Q2 this year. Datawind leads the market, with 26.1% and the firm’s volume managed to grow 73% during the third quarter, thanks to its second manufacturing plant set up in India.

tablet-market-idc

 

Samsung is second, with a pretty good 26.2% growth over the previous three months and then come iBall, Lenovo and Micromax, with 13.6% share, 12% and 10.1%. Apple somehow didn’t make the cut among the top 5 brands, even though they’re leading the global market. 4G tablet shipments have also been confirmed to be solid, with an increase of 5%% from the previous time frame.

A drop will come in Q4, say the experts, coming off the Q3 spike for the Indian Diwali festive season.

It’s incredibly hard to innovate in the tablet segment nowadays, since it’s filled to the brim with “me too” products, usually inspired by iPads, Lenovo Yogas or Surface Pros. The Lenovo Yoga Book is doing its own thing and we were lucky enough to play with its for a few days. Details are revealed after the break, but in the meantime you should know that the Android version of the slate is priced at $499 and the Windows one at $550.

lenovo-yoga-book_087

 

We’re playing with the Android model and as you can tell already, this is no ordinary tablet. It’s a 10.1 incher with a keyboard attached and it’s good for students and professional, as well as casual drawers. It comes with a bundled stylus called Real Pen and a pad for writing stuff down with real ink. Design-wise, this is a work of art, with each “slab” measuring 4 mm in thickness and I mean here the tablet itself and the keyboard segment.

lenovo-yoga-book_127

 

It all amounts to 690 grams in weight, which is 250 grams heavier than the iPad Pro 9.7 but it’s reasonable for a tablet + keyboard combo. The device has a solid build and it’s made of aluminum and magnesium. It comes in gunmetal gray or champagne gold and it’s an elegant machine with a superb hinge, that’s both solid and flexible.

lenovo-yoga-book_108

 

It has 4 usage modes: notebook, tent, fully open and flat on the table and tablet. The keyboard is comfy and has a superb white lightning that feels like a panel from a sci fi movie such as Star Trek. There’s a 360 degree hinge connecting the two parts and I have to say that this is the best tablet design I’ve seen all year and also the most original.

The display included on the Yoga Book is a 10.1 inch IPS LCD panel with a Full HD resolution and LED backlight. It offers 16.7 million colors and 70% color gamut, plus 400 nits of brightness, on paper at least. Its video player has a Pop up play feature and the viewing experience involved good brightness, crisp image, OK colors and wide view angles.

lenovo-yoga-book_038

The contrast of the images was rather so-so. Pixels are of the RGB Stripes variety and the brightness we measured was 375 LUX. Frankly we expected a bit more, something in the area of 400 or even 500 LUX, a value that the Nexus 7 achieved in 2013. At least this brightness beats the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 and iPar Air 2 somehow.

We did score below the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 and the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro, by the way. Settings for the screen include Adaptive Brightness, font size and I feel that the image may be crisp, but it also could have been brighter. Moving on to other hardware, there’s an Intel Atom X5-Z8550 CPU here, a quad core unit at 2.4 GHz, accompanied by 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 64 GB of storage and a microSD card slot.

http://tablet-news.com/2016/11/22/microsoft-applies-for-patent-related-to-keyboard-with-secondary-screen-for-improved-text-entry/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TabletNews+%28Tablet+News%29

In spite of the fact that Microsoft already had touchscreens on keyboards for a while now, it was Apple that made it cool with the touch bar on the new MacBook Pros. Now Microsoft wants to catch up, by preparing a physical keyboard + touch combo of its own. A patent from MS confirms this.

keyboard-unit

A Microsoft patent application has appeared online and the Redmond firm apparently applied for it quite some time before the MacBook Pro was even unveiled, back in July. It relates to a “keyboard with input-sensitive display” and it’s meant to make it easier for the user to input text in Asian phonic languages. Usually such input comes with an error rate of 20% or worse, so manual correction is required.

keyboard-unit-2-1028x900

Usually, the writer has to stop what he’s doing and correct everything, while moving the hands from keyboard to mouse. Microsoft’s invention brings in the extra screen, that may be detachable or be part of the keyboard. It’ll show suggestions for characters entered and also simplify the process of correction. Of course other purposes are available, like drawing, notification manager and UI navigation.

The patent is found here.
