We recently got our hands on the new Lenovo Karma Pro 2, the technologically manufactured new premium tablet. The over-sized 13.3 QHD (2560x1440p) big tablet/computer is of the same stature as my ultra sleek MacBook Air, which I lug around everywhere I go, so I figured the transition would be less abrasive, at least mentally.
Cradling the fine line between tablet and computer, the Karma Pro 2 also straddles the two technology thresholds that separate the two. This was the part I found to be both a pro and a con. Perhaps because I treat my computer as an important tool for work and my personal tablet (iPad mini) as my fun, lounging “around the house” device, I found it hard to find a personal comfort level with the device. Of course there are an assortment of attachable accessories which make the tablet useful in any and all situations and if you don’t my turning your device in to a lumbering beast, lugging around an arsenal items, then you’re good to go.
There are some very cool features which I’ve yet to encounter in other devices, like the built-in pico projector that can simulate a 50-inch screen, allowing me to project pictures, shows and movies onto my wall. This feature is cool for travel adventures, business presentations, and other such niche situations. Other specs include an Intel Atom processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, and 8MP/1.6MP cameras. The sound from the tablet comes courtesy of premium JBL front-facing, large-chamber speakers with a built in subwoofer, Wolfson Master HiFi audio processing and Dolby surround sound. The battery life also lasts for 15 hours and is powered by an Android 4.4 KitKat.
Perhaps the most awe-inspiring thing about the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro tablet came in the form of their YOU Inspired campaign and packaging. Enlisting an array of talented visual artists to create the innovative and beautifully designed campaign was pretty genius. Couple all that with a clever and viral online campaign, YOU Inspired has influencers and consumers instantly engaging with their like minded peers.
Overall this tablet is definitely not for the weak of heart due to the learning curve, but once you over come that, you are good to go. If what you need is a tablet and Android is your OS of choice, you will definitely love the Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro.
