Remember the IdeaPad Yoga tablet that Lenovo had unveiled at the CES event early in the year. More than six months down the line, the tablet now seems finally headed to the production line, but not before incorporating some changes in its internals. The tablet will now be running an ARM chipset and not Intel and will accordingly boot Windows RT and not Windows 8 Pro. Its the Nvidia Tegra 3 processor that seems to have been finalized to make up the core of the IdeaPad Yoga. The tablet though is likely to retain the extended stretching capability that would allow the display to fold back until its outer surface meets that of the keypad section.
Joanna Stern from ABC News also points out the tablet will be out roughly the same time Microsoft will be unveiling the Windows 8 as well as the Surface line of tablet, that is Oct 26.
Lenovo already has planned the IdeaTab Tablet 2 which will run Windows 8 Pro and will be targeting both the business and home users. Lenovo has also a second version of the Yoga i the pipeline, one that will have a battery life twice that of the Intel version.
Further details are awaited.
