Lenovo wowed the tech world last year when it announced the Yoga Book, an ultra-thin Windows 10 and Android tablet with a focus on new, pen-based interactions. Now, the company is back with a new Android tablet, the A12, which takes many of the design elements and ideas behind the Yoga Book at a cheaper $299 starting price point.
The A12 features the same touch-based Halo keyboard as the Yoga Book, with a similar promise that it will learn your typing habits as you use it, although without the unique pen integrations of its pricier sibling. Spec-wise, the A12 offers a 12.2-inch screen with an Intel Atom x5 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage, and runs a similar version of Android with a three-column multi-window mode for multitasking. And of course, as a member of the Yoga family of devices, it features a 360-degree hinge to convert the A12 to a tablet form-factor. The Yoga A12 will be available on Lenovo’s website on February 8th in either gunmetal grey or rose gold colors, starting at $299 for the base model.
