Lenovo has announced its new Lenovo YOGA Tablet 10 HD+ which can be converted into 3 modes – Hold Mode, Stand Mode and Tilt Mode with its versatile rotatable metal stand design. The display pushes a Full HD resolution of 1920×1200 and it runs on a 1.6GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage that’s expandable with microSD Card. You’ll also get a 1.6MP front camera and a main 8MP shooter.
The build quality of the Lenovo YOGA Tablet 10 HD+ is solid thanks to its metallic design which gives it a sturdy feel. The only downside is the processor where lag is noticeable in our hands-on experience. Usally the Snapdragon 400 processor is found on low to mid-tier smart phones like the HTC One mini, Lumia 1320 and LG G2 mini. When paired with a rather huge 9,000mAh battery, the YOGA Tablet 10 HD+ appears to be a frugal tablet with a claimed 18 hours of continuous use.
Watch the hands-on after the break.
If you’re looking for alternatives, Lenovo has finally launched its Ideaphone K900 smart phone in Malaysia with the price tag of RM1,699. The sleek looking device boasts a super slim profile of just 6.9mm and comes in a premium unibody design made of stainless steel and polycarbonate.
The Ideaphone K900 runs on a dual-core Intel Atom Z2580 processor clocked at 2GHz that’s mated with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. At the front, the K900 comes with a 5.5″ IPS display that does a Full HD resolution of 1920×1080 and it is further toughen with Gorilla Glass 2. Over at the back, surprisingly it comes with a Sony 13MP shooter with Exmor BSI sensor that’s found on the current Xperia Z. To take photography up a notch, the camera comes with a f/1.8 focal length, which is one of the widest in smart phones at the moment. It would be interesting to see how Lenovo’s camera performance fares against Sony’s very own Xperia Z under low light situations. For video calls, there’s also a front facing 2MP shooter.
Juicing up the device is a generous 2,500mAh battery and it runs on recent Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. For only RM1,699, the K900 is seriously offering a lot of flagship features at couple of hundred ringgit less than its flagship rivals.

About 6 months ago, Lenovo Malaysia has announced that 2 Android tablets will be coming our way. The IdeaPad K1 was launched in Malaysia few months ago at RM1,499 but that didn’t created as much impact as the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The next device that is more anticipated is the ThinkPad tablet, which features a more business look from the iconic ThinkPad line of business laptops.
So far there hasn’t been any news about it until recently someone had spotted a newspaper ad which Lenovo seems to be clueless about. The ad reveals the ThinkPad Tablet price starting from RM2,199 for the 32GB version and there’s also a 64GB version as well. The person that spotted it tried to get more details from the retailers but none of them are aware of such device. On the facebook page, Lenovo later clarified that the ThinkPad tablets are on their way into Malaysia and should be available in mid-January 2012.
For RM2,199, that’s quite a lot to ask for considering Ice Cream Sandwich tablets like the ASUS Transformer Prime are on their way as well. However the ThinkPad tablet offers a wide variety of ports such as full sized USB port, mini-USB, mini-HDMI output and a full sized SD card slot. In terms of internal hardware, it runs on 1.0 GHz Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 5MP camera and front facing 2MP camera.
Is there anyone waiting for the ThinkPad tablet? IMCC has already listed the product at RM2,199 on their site but didn’t provide much details of the specification just yet.

The 10.1 dual-core IdeaPad K1 will retail for RM1,499 outright (as comparison, the WiFi-only 16GB Asus Eee Pad Transformer retails for RM1498). On launch day, Lenovo is offering a RM300 discount for one day only. The discount is limited to the first 50 units sold. Also the offer is only valid at the Lenovo Exclusive Store at Mid Valley from 11.30am to 1.30pm.
While Lenovo earlier indicated that that both the WiFi and 3G versions of the K1 will be available, only the WiFi version is available on launch day. Lenovo says the 3G version will be “available soon”. Will there be a telco tie-up for the 3G K1? Perhaps.
Full details on where you can purchase the IdeaPad K1 is listed here.
So with the K1 launching a couple of days earlier than the Galaxy Tab 10.1, will it change the buying decision for those who have been waiting for the Galaxy Tab?
While Samsung and Celcom are still deciding what day they will be launching the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Lenovo pulled a fast one and announced the launch of its IdeaPad K1 tablet happening this Thursday, Aug 18, ahead of the Galaxy Tab’s launch.
Lenovo will offer the K1 with over RM200 worth of apps pre-loaded and there is a special one-day special offer on Thursday but the price of the device has not been revealed as of yet. Lenovo says it will reveal full details tomorrow. Both 3G and WiFi models will be available at launch with a selection of colours — Red & White (Wi-Fi version) and Black & Brown (3G version).
The K1 runs Honeycomb Android 3.1 and is powered an Nvidia Tegra 2 1GHz dual-core processor. The 10.1-inch screen that puts out 1280×800 pixels. There’s a 2MP front camera and a 5MP rear-facing camera. Other amenities include a MicroSD reader and a mini-HDMI connector.
On paper, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 has a fighting chance against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and other Honeycomb tablets out there. The problem is, Lenovo is a relative unknown in this fiercely competitive segment. They will need to pull out all the stops in terms of marketing and advertising to get people interested.
This special one day special offer is a move in the right direction, launching the device ahead of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will give the K1 an advantage as well but Lenovo will need to do a lot more advertising to sustain the buzz once the Tab hits stores.
What do you think?
Update: Looks like the IdeaPad K1 and the ThinkPad Tablet has been officially announced in the US.

The ThinkPad Tablet will be available in the US from August while the IdeaPad K1 is on sale there starting today. Full specs of both devices here (ThinkPad Tablet) and here (IdeaPad K1).

Lenovo Malaysia via its Facebook page has just clued us in on its upcoming product launch and if the pictures are what we think they are, you’re looking at two brand-spanking new Honeycomb tablets from Lenovo coming to Malaysia.
Lenovo has two Honeycomb tablets in its range of devices. One is the 10.1-inch (1280 x 800 pixel) IdeaPad K1 Android tablet. As the name suggests the IdeaPad K1 is more of a media/entertainment-centric device complete with a keyboard or media dock option. Specs-wise the K1 features custom Honeycomb interface along with a Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 32GB of storage, dual cameras (5 megapixel rear and 2 megapixel front-facing), a microSD card slot, a micro HDMI out, and a SIM card slot.
The other is ThinkPad Android tablet which, true to the ThinkPad brand, is more catered to business professionals. The ThinkPad tablet also includes a stylus and a storage silo, four physical buttons, an SD card slot as well as USB and HDMI. Processing power is via a dual-core Tegra 2 CPU with 1GB RAM.
No official details yet but pricing on the IdeaPad K1 is expected to hover around the RM1,400 while the ThinkPad tablet should retail for around a few hundred ringgit more, not expecting anything over RM2,500
