If the companies make a demo for their products at CES, then they are sure not to release them for another six months. The PC makers are also doing the same with the Windows 8. Though this latest operating system is not expected to reach the final stage till the last quarter of the year, Lenovo is showing this OS in its IdeaPad Yoga.
The IdeaPad Yoga is a convertible tablet and its screen can flip over like the cover of a spiral bound book. You can bend this tablet so that its keyboard acts as a stand while are watching a movie. The reps of the company said that company looks at its laptop at first and then at the tablet. This is evident from the specs of the device.
It weighs little less than 1.5 kg (3.3 pounds) which is slightly heavier than the quite a few Ultrabooks out there. It has a screen resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels which is unheard for the tablets. It will also have the Intel processors of the next generation.
It will have the price of a laptop costing around $1,000 and it will be available later this year when Windows 8 is finalized.
The battery life of the tablet is about 8 hours as per the company's claim with the 54 Wh pack. The company has made a memorable release for the visitors at CES apart from all the other gadgets.
